Post 8th Gabriel’s Symphony Event Update: Thank You!

September 4, 2010: Thanks to its loyal supporters, another Gabriel’s Symphony has been successfully staged.  The event is an annual fundraising  for kids in need organized by Sen Pia Cayetano in memory of her late son Gabriel Cayetano Sebastian, who died in 2001 from complications of Trisomy 13, a rare congenital chromosomal condition.
It was a truly blessed and special celebration. To highlight some of the activities: Two Ironmen, Maiqui Dayrit & Andrew Arellano, and Half Ironman Willy Chiongbian, raced for children in need of operation and other medical procedures; the SuperTrikids Aquathlon and Triathlon showcased the country’s fine young triathletes; a Top Draw Animation Art Class, Sportsfest, Arnis Class, Shoe Donation from Planet Sports had our 40 Indigent Children beaming with joy; and a Sunset Run capped the day. All in all, beautiful music orchestrated by Pia Cayetano and her crew…all in the memory of her son Gabriel, who for sure was smiling down on each and every participant.
Among others, some personalities who showed up to support included boxing champ Nonito Donaire and wife Rachel, actress Bianca Gonzales, Sports Unlimited hosts Dyan Castillejo and Marc Nelson, David Charlton, Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano, Sandra Schramm Cayetano, Ren Cayetano, cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao, Director Lino Cayetano, Coke executive and Malaya columnist JB Baylon, Carewell’s Robert Suntay, Comelec Comm. and cycling enthusiast Gregorio Larrazabal, Anton Gonzales of Planet Sports, Fitness First Phils’ Mark Ellis, Top Draw Animation’s Wayne and Stella Dearing, animator Nary Jamlig, Ultramarathoner Joy Rojas, members of various triathlon teams and elite triathletes Arland Macasieb, Alessandra Gonzales, George Vilog and Noel Salvador. Race/event coordinators- Ani De Leon, Mailet Ancheta and Coach Rick Reyes of TRAP.
Here are some video clips:

Philippine Premier Cycling League Race 1: Macapagal

My favorite women riders and I decided to join the newly-launched Philippine Premier Cycling League, which promises to be a very exciting race series. The first set of races were Individual Time Trials and Team Time Trials.

Most of our lady teammates were not available to race on the first leg, but still Doray, Rizzo and I didn’t mind that there were only 3 of us in the team time trial! It was fun making our goal not to be last in the sea of male teams with complete sets of riders… and I think we fared quite well in that aspect. Girl power rules!

Running with the Cebuanos

The Inaugural Cebu Marathon which was organized by Jane Jane Ong and friends last weekend was a tremendous success. Pia, Noel, and I ran with the racers and were glad to be part of the festivities, complete with fireworks.

It was a quick trip but was really happy to see friends from Cebu… Jane, Annie, Veronica, Andrew, Haidee, Ripples among others. We missed Bull Runner Jaymie, Coach Rio and Kaye, Noy and Amale (I think they were too fast haha) but we saw Joyette from David’s Salon and Mat from TBB, and Lara and Christine from Women’s Health.  The Timex people were there to help out too.  Plus we also got to eat our favorite mangoes and Leony’s Cakes… mmmm!

This should totally be an annual event!!!! Congratulations guys!!!

The Bull Runner

I was extremely flattered when Jaymie Pizarro, aka The Bull Runner, asked me to pose for the Jan Feb 2010 issue of her magazine. I felt a bit unworthy as the previous covers were Pia Cayetano, Drew Arellano and Tessa Valdes but how could I say no! 🙂

I gamely posed for Ben Chan and answered Marga Deona’s interview and here is the cover photo… can’t wait to see the magazine! Jaymie said it will be out by the 17th.

Thanks so much Team TBR!!!

Anti VAWC Exhibit at the Senate

Senator Pia and her staff recently unveiled an exhibit with information on Anti Violence Against Women and Children.  We were also able to showcase the works of the girls we had an art session with  Marillac.  Am glad the students who came to visit are learning about being empowered women early on in life.

Hello again cyclists!
 
Thank you very much for your warm response re this ride. We will meet at 7am in front of SMX Convention Center in SM Mall Of Asia.  Better to arrive early as jersey distribution is first come, first served.
