Sun Life’s New Health Campaign Aims to Inspire Filipinos to Live Life on Their Own Terms

Sun Life’s New Health Campaign Aims to Inspire Filipinos to Live Life on Their Own Terms

How do you feel about this story?


Good health is key to living life according to your own terms, whether you are pursuing your dreams, caring for your family, or enjoying your wealth. This is the message that Sun Life Philippines wishes to send in its latest campaign, as it strives to inspire more Filipinos to pursue a healthy lifestyle while also availing the benefits of a health insurance.

At the forefront of the campaign is a video called Wheel of Life, which depicts a game show where players get a preview of the financial impact caused by various illnesses, and how having health insurance can help mitigate this. The video stars Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual playing the role of a game show host.

“Critical illness can deplete one’s hard-earned savings,” Sun Life Chief Client Experience and Marketing Officer Carla Gonzalez-Chong said. “Through our new campaign, we wish to present Sun Life as a partner that can help Filipinos be well prepared against these uncertainties and live life on their own terms.”

Sun Life welcomes Donny Pangilinan as New Ambassador

To further raise awareness, especially among the younger generation, Sun Life has also introduced rising star Donny Pangilinan as its new Sun Life health ambassador. Donny, who is an athlete on top of his showbiz pursuits, will be at the forefront of the campaign’s digital activities and promo on TikTok. Participants can get a chance to win exciting prizes. Details will be announced on Sun Life’s Facebook page.

“Young Filipinos needing a role model in pursuing their health goals will surely relate to Donny, who has always been active in sports and outspoken in this advocacy,” Gonzalez-Chong said. “We’re delighted to have him join the Sun Life family.”

For an even more memorable summer, one may also participate in activities promoting the protection of the environment, including underwater and coastal clean-ups and, from April 27 to May 2, the Re-Imagine Exhibit and Repurposed Artworks Sale.

In all these events, the Sun Life ReCycle PH Machine will also be on hand so attendees may exchange their plastic trash for a prize.

“The pursuit of our health and wellness goals can be a fun and purposeful one, especially if we have the right partner, and this is what Sun Life aims to be,” Gonzalez-Chong said. “We are ready to help Filipinos protect their health, in spite of the surprises the wheel of life may have for them.”
