Live Your Best Life at Maxicare MAXIFEST

We ended 2019 with opting to have a healthier lifestyle. Choosing water over carbonated drinks, cutting down on unhealthy snacking and choosing fruits over chips. Deciding to walk more and ride tricycle less, sleep early and minimize screentime. Cheers to a healthier us! In line with this Maxicare Healthcare Corporation highlighted a new and interesting way to improve one’s fitness level in a family fitness event called Maxicare MAXIFEST: Live Your Best Life. We were able to attend this event and witness history in the making as this event was held at Central Park SM by the Bay, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City last December 15, 2019.

“Getting fit is always better when it is done together with friends and loved ones. By gathering thousands of runners and fitness enthusiasts, we are able to build and live a better life through exercise and proper nutrition. At the same time, we hope this event helps us spread awareness on the benefits of living an active and healthy lifestyle, to encourage others to live healthy as well," said Maxicare Healthcare Corporation President and CEO Christian Argos.
MAXIFEST took family bonding to the next level as celebrity couple Drew Arellano and Iya Villania joined the fun while sharing their insights on fitness and wellness. Drew is fond of triathlons, and enjoys sports like hiking, rock climbing, swimming, and surfing, among others; while Iya is also known for living an active lifestyle. She does CrossFit, even when she was pregnant with her second child.

Maxicare has partnered with RUNRIO, Inc., for an exhilarating MAXIFEST run which will feature a 500-meter dash for three to 12-year-old kids, a 2k Senior Sprint for 60-year-olds and above, the basic 3k, the easy distance of 5k, and the athletic 10k and 16k.

Aside from the run, Maxicare Market, a one-stop-shop for ready-to-eat plant-based alternatives, was also featured were over 50 food stalls promoted health and wellness through plant-based nutrition.

The Highlight of Maxicare MAXIFEST 

Was setting a new Guinness World Record for the most number of people hugging a soft toy simultaneously. This attempt to steal the record from Burke, Virginia (USA) with 399 participants was made possible with the help of runners and guests who were given a Maxibear, Maxicare’s official stuffed plushie.
