Coca-Cola’s HALiKa! Caravan Raises P242, 367.35 For Cagayan de Oro City
On one of five nationwide visits that will take it through key cities in the country, the Coca-Cola HALika! Caravan successfully raised Php 242,367.35 during its fourth stop in Cagayan de Oro last December 4, 2009.
More than 1,500 participants attended the event, which was held at the Limketkai Center Parking Lot D Lapasan, Cagayan De Oro City. Participants sweated it out for a good cause, burning a total of 242,367.35 calories. For every calorie lost, one peso was donated to the Feeding Program for the Macabalan Elementary School Kids.
The Feeding Program is spearheaded by the University of the Philippines Alumni Association-Cagayan de Oro (UPAA-CDO) Chapter, this program aims to assist the 343 below normal school children of the Macabalan Elementary School, which is classified as Depressed Disadvantaged and Underserved. By providing hot meals, the program aims to reduce the number of malnourished children in school and promote good and proper nutrition among these students. This is also UPAA-CDO’s way of actively involving parents, teachers, and school administrators in addressing the concerns on hunger and malnutrition.
The Coca-Cola HALika! Caravan will then head on to Rajah Sulayman Park in Manila on December 19, 6AM, for the culminating charity workout.
This year marks the biggest HALika! campaign to date with the introduction of the Caravan, which will bring the message of healthy and active living to Filipinos.
The fun and practical HALika! workouts are based on everyday activities such as household chores, walking to and from work and even dancing. These workouts help improve strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health.
HALika! Mag-Healthy and Active Living Na! is supported by media partners, Manila Bulletin, the Philipine star and the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
HALiKa! Mag-Healthy and Active Living Na! is part of the Healthy and Active Lifestyle advocacy of Coca-Cola which encourages everyone to make balanced nutrition, regular physical activity and proper hydration part of everyday life.
