It is also be about teaching children to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Friday morning July 31, Sunrise Events Inc. and Alaska Milk President Wilfred Steven Uytengsu led Alaska IronKids participants and IronMan competitors as they went to Punta Engano Elementary School to teach students there the value of exercise and healthy breakfast.

“Alaska IronKids is all about adopting a healthy lifestyle. Children have fun as they swim, bike and run. We are also advocating the Gatas for Breakfast campaign. I invite everyone here to start the day with exercise and then have that healthy breakfast which includes Alaska Milk. You will grow strong and healthy. One day soon I hope you may even be part of the Alaska IronKids or even race in the IronMan,” said Uytengsu to the 1,200 students from Grade 1 to 6 of the elementary school.

The students danced to the song Mag-Gatas for Breakfast with choreography by their own teachers: Mary Ann Amores, Sheila Lingatong and Diona Ochea. After the brisk exercise the students then had a hearty, healthy breakfast of champorado with Alaska Milk.
