MANILA — The National Basketball Association (NBA) encourages Filipinos to embrace a healthy lifestyle by taking part in a fun at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig on August 7.

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra will flag off the race and then take part in the run as part of the NBA Fit, the league’s comprehensive health and wellness program.

Runners can choose to participate in four race categories: 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k.

Starting point will be at 7th Avenue and will end at 9th Avenue.

“Being fit and staying fit is a big part of being effective in basketball. Being able to combine basketball and my heritage gives me such great pride,” said Spoelstra, who is NBA FIT Ambassador to the Philippines. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
