Philippine Basketball AssociationI’ve been a fan of the PBA since I was a kid. The popularity of basketball is phenomenal in the Philippines as even in remote street corners, basketball has always found its way to the Filipinos heart. More than 3 decades of PBA has brought in fans across several generations rooting for their favorite teams. The PBA has been a league of the fans and with that comes PBA Run with the Fans on April 21. It also goes to a worthy cause which is the Cancer & Hematology Center of Philippine Children’s Medical Center. So whether, you’d want to do the 2 KM Fitness walk or go for short and sweet distance of 3K and 5K or go on longer for a 10K and 15K category, PBA Run with the fans would be your chance to meet your favorite player and at the same time contribute to a good cause. Plus get treated to a good uphill course in Frontera Verde, Tiendesitas.
CW-X Compression Wear is a proud sponsor of the 2013 PBA Run for a Cause 4. The sport of basketball requires supreme athleticism as it combines power, speed, flexibility, agility, and stamina in a high impact game. A game that takes a little more than an hour is the culmination of hours spent training on the road, in the gym, or on the court. In this regard, every serious athlete understands the need for full support and active recovery so he can train harder, longer, and be at his best. Make the most of your 48 minutes of game time by having the compression technology that powers up your training and reduces wear and tear at game time.
“CW-X as an Engineered Endurance Apparel creates Revolutionized Performance for the athletes”, says Christine Majadillas, Business Development Manager of Toby’s Sports and Brand Manager for CW-X.
Based on years of research in kinesiology, the science of human movement, CW-X compression wear is designed to enhance muscle and joint support, with additional benefits of increased stability, balance, efficiency of movement, and better shock resistance in joints. By compressing the muscles and joints in key areas, CW-X increases blood circulation while decreasing muscle oscillation, as well as helping to aid in faster recovery.
CW-X compression wear utilizes a variety of performance fabrics such as Health+, LycraR, CoolmaxR, Dry-ZoneR, Fieldsensor, and Auto-Sensor to deliver the right amount of support at the right part of the body while at the same time wicking away sweat.
