Some 500 Lopez Group employees, with their family members and friends, turned out for the Lopez Group HR Council-Lopez Lifelong Wellness Walk the Talk (WTT) held at La Mesa Nature Reserve, Quezon City in January.
For this ABS-CBN- and SKY-sponsored WTT, the committee introduced a biking feature and invited bikers to join the event. Separate trails were created to cater to the two groups of participants— 6 km. for the walkers and 9 km. for the bikers.
Jonathan Cruz of SKY delivered the invocation to kick off the walk.
Emcee Dimpy Jazmines of SKY also welcomed the participants to the first WTT of the year, while Charles Bautista of ABS-CBN led the recitation of the Lopez Credo and Values.
The birthday celebrators for the month of January were recognized, after which the stretching and exercise portion got under way with Jane Antonio from Gold’s Gym.
The event proper was preceded by a safety briefing from August Villalon of Energy Development Corporation’s Disaster Preparedness and Response Unit and Alfred Go from SKY’s Emergency Response team.
Also for the first time, the WTT introduced the BMI or body mass index monitoring of participants. In addition, survey forms to assist in the continuous improvement of the monthly wellness undertaking were handed out.(Stroy/Photo by:Gerbs de Castro)
