It is always great to see brands supporting advocacy that empowers the youth sector. Last Saturday, we witnessed how fitness can save our youth from getting into prohibited drugs by encouraging them to engage in wellness activities whole year round.
Coach Jim and Toni Saret, The National Youth Commission (NYC), ABS-CBN Star Hunt Academy artists, together with the leading hair loss treatment in the country NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss, officially launched “FITFIL YOUTH AGAINST DRUGS (and Obesity)” at SM Mall of Asia By the Bay last November 16, 2019. The challenge for a 2-hour Dance Fitness Marathon was attended by more than 3,000 youth delegate and representatives from from various government sectors. NOVUHAIR conducted free hair and scalp analysis to help attendees achieve overall wellness starting with their crowning glory.
Highlighting the event, The National Youth Commission headed by Commissioner Ryan Enriquez, pledged to donate 2 million pounds of excess fat from Filipino youth! This challenge is FITFIL’s way of rallying humanity to become more proactive in fighting lifestyle-related diseases responsible to almost 70% of all Global illnesses including deaths.
