As Healthway Medical is known for their prevention rather than cure mantra, they came up with an exciting dance competition to celebrate their anniversary in a healthier way.

“Dancing is a form of art but it is also considered as a great form of exercise. It is one of the most effective cardio exercises, not only for weight loss purposes but also for maintaining a healthier way of living as it involves different body movements. It conditions the human body, reduces the risk of osteoporosis, and improves blood circulation and cardiovascular disease. That is why I foster dancing in our company” said Carmie de Leon, Healthway Medical, VP for sales and marketing.

And as part of their anniversary program, Healthway Medical invited all corporate and universities to showcase their moves on the dance arena. Aside from cash and wellness packages, the dance contest also serves as an advocacy campaign wherein it benefits the KYTHE Foundation and CENTEX, a project of Ayala Foundation, Inc.

KYTHE Foundation is a non-profit, non-stock organization aimed to inspire hope for the hospitalized children with cancer and chronic illness. As KYTHE (means “to make visible”) is already 20 years in service, they continue to help these children in achieving quality life through their KYTHE Childe Life Program. They are the only foundation in the country that offers such service through the help of group of trained professionals.
On the other hand, CENTEX (Center of Excellence in Public Elementary Education) is a public school since 1998 operated by Memorandum Agreement between the Department of Education and Ayala Foundation which caters bright children from economically disadvantaged families who needs quality education and ample support for their brighter future.

CENTEX operates two public schools in Tondo Manila and Bauan Batangas wherein they served as a learning environment for the children to secure a better opportunity ahead. With this, Helathway Medical pushes this exciting dance competition not just only to celebrate but also in lending some kindness to those blessed children.
