Advocacy for Human Race Against Rotavirus

9:44 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

It's been a privileged to witness the advocacy of Coach Rio de la Cruz last Sunday, January 27, 2013 held at Pryce Plaza Hotel during the Vaccine Congress 2013 calledHuman Race Against Rotavirus.

By the way, do you know what Rotavirus is all about? It is actually is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among infants and young children- indeed an enemy that we need to fight! Why? Because 4000 children die everyday aged less than 5 years old and in the Philippines statistics show that there are 13 children die everyday because of this rotavirus-related gastroenteritis.

In this race, losing is more than just being the last to cross the finish line but this time, defeat means loss of thirteen precious lives. We need to fight and win for this enemy and stop it before it's to late, if we only quicken our steps to outrun this enemy!

But how to save this children from rotavirus-related death counts? It is through vaccination where we can prevent this fatal disease. The World Health Organization's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) recommends that rotavirus vaccines be included in all national immunization programs, particularly in countries where diarrhea-related deaths account for more than 10% deaths in children younger than 5 years old.

Through their recommendations, I hope it will somehow reduce overall child mortality in the Philippines and win the race against this fatal yet highly preventable disease. Remember that the faster we act against the rotavirus, the more children we save.

Photo: Welcome to my page!!hope you like my inspirational socks
Growing up I loved the stage, but it didn't come easy. Stage fright was something that always held me back and I still remember all the emotions, just like it was yesterday. 

Strangely enough my mom had the perfect solution: She put coins in my socks before one of my competitions, and told me this would help calm me down. 

That day I went on stage with the coins in my socks and little did I know that I would take these coins with me for the rest of my life. 

It wasn't just about the coins, it was what the coins reminded me of.. My mother's words, or maybe it was the magic in them. 

Now I share the magic with you: through "FOOTNOTES"; these socks carry the words and the inspiration that have guided me in my struggles and in my journeys. 

So as you wear them each day, I hope the quotes will guide and inspire you as well to always put your best foot forward - in each step that you take. 

 "FOOTNOTES" is not your ordinary pair of socks. It is inspiration at your feet

                                                                                                                                      -Mark Bautista

Cool right? Every day as you wear these socks, not just you'll be inspired but instead motivated to move and live life to the fullest. Imagine a life's inspiration quotes are printed on it plus the array of different colors of your pairs of socks make it more fun!

Now if you want to purchase Footnotes socks, you can have it in two different types – the ankle and the knee socks. If you wish to avail their limited edition, you can have 7 pair of socks for the price of 1,499.  
Guess what? You're not just only patronizing our very own fellow Kagayanon's products but in a way you're helping the M.A.C Foundation, in every purchases you made- 10 pesos will go to the said foundation.

Now, this is what I've got....."Focus and Win"
