Kids On Bikes Philippines : A Fun Campaign on Health and Wellness for Kids

Kids On Bikes Philippines 
A Fun Campaign on Health and Wellness 
for Kids

  
  

I am a mom of 2 adorable kids (ages 8 and 11). Like most moms, it is important for me that my kids will have strong bones and muscles. In order to achieve that, I will see to it that they are eating well, drinking their milk, playing or engaged into sports as their exercise and if they take their vitamins religiously like my mom always did for me when I was a kid. Who can relate? Oh I guess a lot of you can relate to this. When other parents are struggling on how they could motivate their child to engage into sports and physical activity. We are all aware that in this generation, most kids are always at home, stuck in their bedroom and playing on their electronic gadgets (laptops, tablets, computers, game consoles etc.) It is really hard for us parents to ask the kids to go out sometimes and play with their siblings or neighbors. Take their bikes and drove around the village, basketball, swimming and other activities that will strengthen their muscles. Kids nowadays is hooked to electronic gadgets and don’t like to go out anymore. 

Good thing there are events that help promote good health and wellness for kids, because it is important for our kids to have strong bones and muscles. Kids On Bikes Philippines created an event that aims to cultivate a fun bonding experience for the whole family. Why did they do that? Their mission is to create a sports activity that aims to promote discipline, good health, and sportsmanship for the kids. Not just that, Kids On Bikes, aims to raise benefactions for the less fortunate children in our communities by endowing the kids with bikes. Together with their partners and supporters, they will be able to expand their campaign on health and wellness for the kids. Sounds good, right?



As early as 8am at SM Mall of Asia (SM By The Bay), the parents registered their kids and received their race kits. Kids worn their singlet jersey race shirt and they were so excited (even the parents). Before they start the race, facilitators of the event engaged the kids first on stretching and exercise to let the kid’s muscles be prepared for the race. They had warm up exercises with “Geo” (Growee’s mascot). Geo taught them that “It is not enough for kids to just be tall, they have to be tough as well!” After that was a safety check and guidelines for the bikers and their bikes. They were able to know what to check on their bikes, the gears to wear, and how to be safe at all times. 

Registration is open!


For those who wasn't able to bring the carton box of Growee, worry no more! You can buy on site.


Stretching before the race begins in few minutes...


The kids are listening carefully for the safety guidelines and how to check on their bikes.

The game started with the FUN RIDE for kids ages 3-5 years old. This is a no-competition fun race for the kids. This is a family activity where participants are joined by parents or guardians to play in a stress free and fun mini playground. Parents are cheering for the kids, some successfully finished the race, but some still managed to finish the course even if some kids are already on the finish line. The lesson that we should teach our kids: “It is not a matter of winning the race, it is how you finish it.”

The fun race for ages 3-5 years old, aren't they cute?

Second game was BIKE RELAY for kids ages 6-8 years old. This is a team mini bike race competition where the kid and their mom or dad, compete with other teams in a relay type of race. In this game, it aims to show the kids that their moms or dads can race using bikes too! Me and my 8 year old daughter Zyanne, joined this game also and we finished 3rd! 

My daughter during the Bike relay... Yay! we finished third!

Third and final game was the MAIN RACE for kids ages 9-13 years old. This is the major bike competition. The kids will have a friendly competition where kids will race each other to be hailed as the “Biker of the Year.” My 11 year old son, were able to get to the finals and he will be back for the final competition on April 9th 2016 at SM Mall of Asia. After that game, my son even asked me if he could join another kiddie race competition. I am such a proud mom! Thank you so much Growee and Kids on Bikes Philippines for this wonderful experience!

My son Zachery is ready for his race.
Let the race begin! My son finished 5th and he will compete again on the Kids On Bikes Finale

Kids today are leading an increasingly sedentary lifestyle; they tend to spend more of their time indoors either playing with their gadgets or watching TV. We want them to lead a more active lifestyle by encouraging them to play outdoor sports and engage in other physical activities. In order for them to be able to do this, they need to have the right physical make up - they have to be tall and tough. It’s not enough for them to be just tall, they have to be tough as well with strong bones and strong muscles which they can get from daily intake of Vitamin D!


Make sure that the vitamins you are giving your kids have Vitamin D. Give them Growee! It not only has CGF for maximum height, but also Vitamin D for strong bones and strong muscles. With Growee, kids are not just tall, they’re tough as well.


Growee is available in all leading drugstores nationwide at the following prices: Growee Drops 15mL at P80.49, Growee Syrup 120mL at P146.90, Growee Syrup 250mL at P267.40.
