Unveiling the Spark at Golds Gym Araneta City

September 3, 2023 marked a day of immense significance as we officially launched Project STEP-UP at the vibrant heart of fitness and wellness, Golds Gym Araneta City. On this day, we kick-started our flagship event, the “Walk Your Way To Wellness – Walking Challenge”, a four-month journey committed to improving the health and well-being of our community.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the pillars of our initiative – our esteemed sponsors: Gold’s Gym Araneta City, Magdalino Perfumes, and Lucio Trading Inc. Alongside them, we extend our appreciation to our partner clubs for their unwavering commitment to our cause. Together, we form a formidable alliance, proving the remarkable power of unity in driving positive change.
