SunPIOLOgy 2012 Trio: Rave, Run, and Raise Funds for a Cause

Two years ago, Sun Life Financial Philippine's collaboration with Piolo Pascual resulted in very nice desk calendars that helped raised funds for Piolo's Hebreo Foundation, an organization that helps children go to school. Last year, they came up with the SunPIOLOgy Pursuits Journal and art exhibit/auction. On its third year, Sun Life and Piolo invites everyone to Rave, Run, and Raise Funds for a Cause.


This December 10, visit the lobby of the newly-inaugurated Sun Life Centre, a pioneering green structure located in Bonifacio Global City, and browse the benefit exhibit dubbed Panoramic Portals. This is a collection of 28 of Piolo's latest photos side by side with original artworks that were hand-drawn by a Hebreo scholar who happens to be an upcoming artist as well. Using old masters classic strokes, the paintings would illuminate one of Piolo's talents that he practices out of the limelight.

He shares that this is an exciting twist for his advocacy as they help showcase one of the student's talents so he can continue his education. "I hope this exhibit will be a treat for collectors and art enthusiasts who are on the lookout for promising artists," says Hebreo's founder. The exhibit will be on display from December 11 until the eve of Piolo's birthday on January 12, 2012. If you want to own a Piolo original, an online bidding will be available within that period.


Next in line is the Sunset Run which is aimed to celebrate good health and the thrill of overcoming one's goals and dreams no matter the distance. "Running is a meditation for me; a time to think and just let myself go. It is also a challenge to see how far I can go," affirms Piolo who is a triathlete himself and a competitive runner.

The race commences with a Vertical Run at the Sun Life Centre located at the corner of 5th Avenue and Rizal Drive road. Runners can register for 3k, 5k, and 10k distances. Kids 5 to 10 years old can also join a 500m costume run. To register, visit any of Toby's and Runnr outlets in Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Shangri-La Mall, and TriNoma until November 4.


Sun Life's Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa acknowledges that the SunPIOLOgy collaboration with Piolo continues to grow yearly. She reports, "So far, we have raised more than a million pesos which has gone to the education of Hebreo Foundation's scholars. With this year's Sunset Run, we again encourage everyone to support our cause for education while also engaging in an active and healthy lifestyle."

"We invite Filipinos to live the spirit of generosity during the holidays. Let us make SunPIOLOgy a rousing success, beginning with your participation in the Sunset Run and our Benefit Exhibit," requests Piolo.
