In line with the celebration of World Milk Day, Alaska IronKids Philippines Run Race was held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds last June 1. Kids aged 6 to 14 ran 1k to 3k respectively. Personally, I was amazed and got inspired with the energy the kids showed that morning. I am not used to seeing young ones racing in an organized fashion; I just see kids play tag, that’s all, and it’s rare nowadays because of the available technology we have. Young ones are more inclined to just grab the nearest gadget available and play online, eyes focused on white screens. My congratulations to the parents and coaches of these Alaska IronKids for encouraging them to be active in sports like running, cycling, and swimming, and to Alaska for promoting an active lifestyle earlier in life. You’re not just teaching kids to drink milk; you’re also helping them become better human beings – humble, disciplined, and motivated.
Until next year’s race, IronKids!
