TO PROMOTE a healthier lifestyle and support the environment under the new normal, the Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) has organized the Cebu Wellness Revolution.

The Cebu Wellness Revolution is a four-week online wellness challenge “to energize the greater Cebuano community towards healthy lifestyle and well being, support the environment and reduce climate change and other negative effects.”

Through this health revolution, Cebuanos will be able to recognize the importance of exercise and healthy living specially to combat Covid, the chamber said.

“It is especially apt for today’s new normal as we have to live with Covid-19 while moving on and moving forward to a normal lifestyle,” MCCI president Steven Yu told SunStar Cebu.

The four-week challenge will include activities such as exercises, healthy food preparation, workshops as well as wellness and other informative talks on alternative medicines and practices that could help alleviate physical, mental, and even spiritual conditions of an individual.

Challengers may participate individually or as a group of up to five members as long as all safety precautions and Covid-19 health standard protocols are observed.

To qualify, the challengers must like and follow MCCI and Cebu Wellness Revolution on Facebook where one video challenge per week will be posted. Challengers must take a video of themselves showing that they are executing the challenge of the week and post their video on their Facebook wall using the hashtags #CebuWellnessRevo and #Week number.

At the end of the 30 days, all completers are encouraged to post a testimonial video of how the challenge has impacted their health. MCCI will choose the top three best testimonial videos who will be receiving grand and exciting prizes.

Virtual ride

Meanwhile, the chamber also inked a partnership agreement with Vivant Foundation and the Mandaue City local government to mount the “Ride Safe, Bai” virtual ride which will be held from Sept. 24 to 26, 2021, as part of the Cebu Wellness Revolution.

Participants can ride anywhere they deem safe, including indoor/stationary bikes. They can track or record their ride through Relive, Strava or Zwift, and must always adhere to standard bike safety protocols.

Those who want to include outdoor segments are encouraged to include at least a portion of designated bike lanes in Mandaue City and the Jagobiao Bike Repair Station located beside the Jagobiao Barangay Hall.

Special prizes await creative posts that include the Jagobiao Bike Repair Station. (JOB)
