A Blast at the Women’s Health ARE YOU GAME? Event

Two weeks ago, I was one of the many women attendees to the launch of the Manila Leg of the International Women’s Health “Are  You Game?” event. It was such a great time bonding with my girl running-blogger friends and Banjo.

The event was filled with super-tiring but fun, fun, fun activities from cooking lessons by McCormick, yoga, dance workouts, massage sessions to bull rides and the blockbuster Bunjee Trampoline! Everyone had a super great time that as we leave, we only have one common question – “When will be the next edition?“. We surely hope it will be soon!

Below are some photos I have taken from the event and also the official press release. Watch out and be ready for the next edition of “Are You Game?”! 😉
