Mommy Mundo, an organization for active and modern moms, has reached another milestone as it successfully organized and hosted its sixth Mommy Milkshake Run on March 6, 2016. It was certainly a family-friendly event as mommies, daddies and their toddlers and babies ran 3K and 5K categories that coursed through the University Parkway area of Bonifacio Global City.
A warm up session started at 6:30AM where everybody joined in to avoid any muscle injury during the run. The 5K category commenced at 6:40AM while the 3K event started 10 minutes after.

Mommy Mundo founder Janice Crisostomo-Villanueva made sure to emphasize the “fun” in this fun run and encouraged the participants to take their sweet time and enjoy the event with their family and friends. It was interesting to see runners of all shapes and sizes, as well as countless strollers being pushed by mommies and daddies.
Although the event was not timed, many participants still showed their competitive spirit and raced to get out of the start line. It can be fun to compete also!

The family that runs together, stays together ;)
The families seemed to have had a blast because aside from bonding thru walking and running, they also got to experience interesting booths like a Lego play area and free (mechanical) pony rides for the kids, and a special mom lounge where mothers can breastfeed, change their babies’ nappies or simply have some quiet time with their infants.
Free pony rides for the tots.
After the run, participants were treated to music by Carlos and Anna Benitez, goodie bags for finishers, food and drinks, and some fun and games for the kids.
With the success of this year’s edition of the Mommy Milkshake Run, next year is sure to hold more fun and surprises for the whole family.
