ASICS PARTNERS WITH ST. LUKE’S MEDICAL CENTER TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL NURSES WEEK WITH FRESH PAIRS OF SNEAKERS
It is no exaggeration to call our nurses the backbone of the healthcare system that's been trying to keep our nation afloat amidst this pandemic. As thanks, ASICS partners with St. Luke's Medical Center to give away more comfortable and stylish pairs of shoes.
Working longer hours to accommodate those who need an extra amount of care has become a day-to-day combat of our nurses. Having a sound mind in a sound body is more relevant now more than ever as levels of stress and anxiety heightens, not just for the general population, but most especially for our nurses.
ASICS continues its goal to support more people to experience the positive impact of movement as they recognize the contributions of professional nurses for their operations in the medical center.
“Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” — A Sound Mind in a Sound Body
The brand goes back to its roots with this motto as they advocate spreading positivity while promoting better well-being. Along with that goes with offering support to the first line of people who continue to help us flatten the curve— our healthcare workers—who have tirelessly fought the battle against COVID-19.
As an ode to last year’s efforts, ASICS has partnered once more with St. Luke’s Medical Center to offer another gesture of gratitude to nurses. This will be part of the International Nurses Week celebration bearing the global theme: “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – A Vision for Future Healthcare” held in both Bonifacio Global City and Quezon City branches. From the symbolic lighting of the lamp and recitation of the “Nightingale Pledge” down to some unwinding activities, the distribution of ASICS shoes is set to recharge the unsung heroes of the hospital. In addition to this, ASICS will be extending a special in store discount for all nurses and all frontliners.
