Good health is one of the most important assets that a person could ever have. Unfortunately, the fast pace of modern living sometimes makes it challenging to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Fortunately, Filipinos now have a new partner in their journey to wellness. Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc., one of the country's leading financial services organizations recently launched GoWell, a community that will offer credible information and exciting events that would help one achieve the best of health.

"Sun Life has always envisioned a brighter life for every Filipino, and that requires not only financial security but also being in the best of health. Once in a while, we’re able to champion wellness through special events and CSR initiatives, but now, with GoWell, we will be able to really partner with every Filipino as they pursue their wellness journey,” says Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa.

At the launch of the GoWell community at the Shangri-La Boracay, guests got a taste of the healthy lifestyle.
