/ 02:51 AM April 14, 2013

MANILA, Philippines—Fat Run 2013 and The Taba Congress, a dual-event health advocacy, will hold the precongress run Sunday and the highlight “The Taba Congress” on July 26-28, both at the World Trade Center on Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City.

The Fat Run will feature a five-challenge course, namely, speed rope, balance beam and crawl, jump box, pushups and a climbing wall to be completed in 45 minutes to one hour.

Envisioned to be “the ultimate venue for the exchange of knowledge on the latest trends on weight loss and a healthy lifestyle for the betterment of Filipino society,” the dual events aim to create “an avenue to impact health consciousness through a meeting of minds and services in an event that will encourage the assembly of different individuals with one common interest, weight loss.”


The health advocacy is the brainchild of Dr. Claudine Roura.

The main beneficiary of the events is Child Haus, a temporary shelter for indigent patients from the provinces who have cancer and other serious ailments but no place to stay in Metro Manila while undergoing tests or treatment. It provides free room and board and is run along the principles of hospice care.

“With the support of the Department of Health, we formed a formidable team that will make the congress a big success. With the combination of brilliant minds and professionalism, this one of a kind event will make its mark as a forerunner in the health and wellness industry, being identified as the event of the year,” said Roura.

She said that to “look better, fell better and be better” was the best option for a greater and healthier life.
