This February, Dusit Thani Manila’s DFiT Fitness Club takes off on a week-long health and wellness fête as it celebrates its 3rd anniversary dubbed as “DFiT Triple Feat”, with its thrust in creating a better lifestyle for all. This year, however, DFiT also endeavors to give a new meaning to wellness by enjoining the public to take part in changing lives of children and heal humanity one smile at a time.
In lieu of this vision, “DFiT and Dusit Thani Manila along with Operation Smile Philippines share the same vision in mobilizing a world of generous hearts and in making them realize that within our grasp is the ability to change the future of a disfigured child, and by doing so, demonstrate that involvement creates change”, says Operation Smile Philippines executive director, Roberto Manzano.
One of the highlights of the event is the 3K Fun Run which will be on February 20, Saturday at The Fort, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Registration and redemption of race kits start at 5:00am with a registration fee of Php400 per person which includes race bib, route map and singlet. Drinks will also be provided at the finish line and at strategic areas in the race course, while roving and standby medical aids and ambulance services will be available all throughout the event. Overall champion will win an annual membership at DFiT worth P31,400.
Dusit Thani Manila general manager Prateek Kumar shares, ”We strongly support Operation Smile’s advocacy on treating childhood facial deformity and giving the gift of cleft surgery. We appeal on your generous hearts. Please join us in this worthy cause. Let’s give wellness a different facet, heal children’s smiles and transform lives one child at a time”.
Other daily activities from February 15-20 include Fitness Testing and Evaluation, Aerobics Marathon and Bench Press Competition where a limited supply of L’Occitane products will be given away to early bird registrants.
Operation Smile, a not-for-profit volunteer medical services organization that provides reconstructive surgery and related health care to indigent children afflicted with cleft deformities, is the official beneficiary of all the proceeds of DFiT’s 3K Fun Run.
DFiT Fitness Club is located at the 2nd level of Dusit Thani Manila.
