ONLY HEART – “The Bank with a Heart for Every Filipino” is the new slogan of Philippine Veterans Bank. Most apt as PVB looks after the welfare of war veterans and their families.
And who could be a most worthy goodwill ambassador of the bank’s revitalized image? None other than Heart Evangelista, actress, painter, model, and animal lover. And wife of Sen. Chiz Escudero,
At the recent Bataan Freedom Run, Heart encouraged runners to join the event via video that was shared on social media networks. Over 1,000 runners signed up for the event organized by PVB with Without Limits as its race consultant.
TOP FINISHERS – The Bataan Freeedom Run is in honor of the thousands of Filipino and American World War II veterans who endured the Bataan Death March 74 years ago and is one of the highlights of the celebration of Philippine Veterans Week.
In the punishing 68.9 kilometer ultra-marathon, the top three winners were Angel Joseph Mendoza, Albert Omborga, and Jojie Daga-As, in that order.
All winners received cash prizes and medals, but the top three finishers also got to bring home trophies.
Next year, when the Bataan Death March marks its 75th year, PVB and its partners promise a bigger Bataan Freedom Run.
