The #AlaskaIronKids event in Mactan, Cebu last August 1 and 2 proved to be an awesome showcase of sportsmanship and action. But it wasn't just all about running, biking, and swimming for the kids who joined the event; there were actual lessons too!

Here are five things we've learned:

1. When you do sports, you also play!

For its Gatas for Breakfast program, #AlaskaIronKids and its participants shared a nutritious breakfast with the kids of Mactan Elementary School. Drinking Alaska milk is a good source of energy and the best start to getting healthy and active.

The Alaska IronKids supports Gatas for Breakfast is a practice run for a good cause. Last August 1, the #AlaskaIronKids participants and some of the IronMan Champions share a nutritious breakfast to over 1,500 young students of the Mactan Elementary School. The activity encouraged everyone especially the youth to start their day right with a nutritious breakfast with Alaska milk. This effort to foster a healthy consciousness among individuals and families—through the combination of exercise and proper nutrition—is Alaska’s way in helping fight against the increasing number of overweight and undernourished children in the country. Drinking Alaska milk is a good source of energy and the best start to getting healthy and active.

The moms and dads of the #AlaskaIronKids participants were in full force and they were truly a joy to watch as they high-fived, hugged, and encouraged their children to keep on going.

 

4. Losing is part of winning.

Not all children, of course, were able to reach their goals of being the ultimate champs, but fret not, this is part of winning. You have to know that winning isn't everything and sometimes it's the experience in the race, not the race that counts. Tara Borlain, 11, knew this best when she lost out to 12-year-old sister, Samantha in the race. "It's part of life.  In a race, you win some and you lose some," Tara said.

5. Drinking milk is a must.


Milk will never go out of style and when it's Alaska, you're sure to become a healthy! With an active lifestyle, you're on your way to become a champ-in-the-making!
