Through the years, the Fit & Fun Buddy Run, which is in line with Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles, has been a much-anticipated event for a lot of people. Kincking off the celebration of Wellness and Nutrition month, the fun run provides a fun gateway activity for fitness newbies who are just about to start their wellness journey and loyal runners.
According to Robinsons Supermarket General Manager Jody Gadia: We are happy to provide an opportunity for people to start their wellness journey in a fun and one-of-a-kind event with their partners. After all, getting fit and choosing the healthier lifestyle is more worthwhile when shared with a buddy.

The event is hosted by TV personality Mikael Daez and fitness power couple Coaches Jim and Toni Saret, who prepped-up the runners with a short work-out. Other celebrities who graced the event are Jessie Mendiola and Drew Arellano.After crossing the finish line with their buddies and celebrating fitness in a fun and exciting way, most of the participants also enjoyed exciting activity booths and took home big grocery loot bags that have been the trademark of the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run through the years.

The loot bags contained lots of freebies from Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth Nutrition, Abbott Nutrition, Fonterra and Unilab.
