A Dream Run for Moms, Nursing Mothers Take Challenge at The Bull Runner Marathon



Running a marathon—all 42 kilometers of it—is no easy feat, even for seasoned athletes. So it is especially remarkable to see moms who not only raced to the finish line, but also did some milk expression along the way.

This is precisely what happened at The Bull Runner Dream Marathon held last February 24 at Nuvali in Laguna. Participating moms, which included actress Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, were provided two breastfeeding booths special pit stops by Philips Avent, the brand Number 1 recommended by moms. These pit stops housed the Philips Avent breast pump, and were the first of their kind in any marathon.
 “Going for long hours without expressing milk to feed our infants can cause anxiety to us nursing moms. And this is true even during a run! It was a relief to know that Philips Avent was behind us mothers in this race,” Maricel reveals.

The Philips Avent Breastfeeding Booths were strategically placed in each half of the 42K run and it served as a venue for breastfeeding mothers like Maricel to comfortably express milk and still perform their motherly duties even in the heat of the race. Each pit stop was equipped with sterilizers, coolers, handy thermal bags, and comfortable chairs all in the privacy of this unique pit stop.





Calling her dream run “42@42,” Maricel trained long hours, rain or shine,  all in the midst of wrapping up a movie shoot, being a hands-on mom, attending to various engagements, family gatherings and nursing her baby Solana. Nothing came between Maricel and finishing the 42K marathon.

Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Avent’s Business Development Manager explains, “Philips Avent wanted to help Maricel realize her dream of completing the marathon because running 42K is no easy task, to say the least.  It takes a lot of determination and hard work, and we are very proud of Maricel for reaching her goal.”

Achacoso concludes, “It’s our commitment at Philips Avent to support moms in whatever endeavor they undertake. Maricel and the other moms who ran the marathon proved that you can follow your dream while continuing to give the best care for your baby.”
