Angel Locsin and Catriona Gray Join Philippines Red Cross' Relief Operations for Typhoon Victims

Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, known for their civic work and advocacies, continued their respective efforts to extend aid to victims of Typhoon Ulysses. 

Both women are Philippine Red Cross (PRC) ambassadors who have actively taken part in the humanitarian organization’s programs. 

Angel joined PRC staff and volunteers in Rizal, where thousands of families have been displaced after being inundated with floods. 

That’s aside from her ongoing project as part of Aktor PH, an organization of Filipino actors, which has been packing and sending supplies to evacuees. 

Catriona, who is in Colombia for its national pageant as a judge, fulfilled her ambassador role for PRC by urging donations through a video message. 

Beyond that, she met with officials of the Colombian counterpart of the group “to promote the fundraising activities for typhoon relief operations of @philredcross in the Philippines as well as PRC’s current COVID operations, leading the country’s mass public testing capacity.” 

ABS-CBN News Receives Diamond Creator Award from YouTube for Hitting 10M Subscribers

ABS-CBN News received  its Diamond Creator Award from YouTube three months after hitting 10 million subscribers, a milestone achieved as the organization strengthened its video presence online. 

The diamond play button arrived with a congratulatory letter from YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. 

We hope you’ll accept this Diamond Creator Award as a token of our appreciation, and our respect for what you’ve accomplished… You amaze us and inspire us every day. Keep it coming,” the letter said. 

As of writing, ABS-CBN News’ YouTube channel already has 10.8 million subscribers, with some 6.7 billion lifetime views. 

ABS-CBN News' YouTube channel hosts the Kapamilya network’s wide-ranging news and current affairs content, including live and on-demand streaming of its flagship newscast “TV Patrol,” and programs from ANC and TeleRadyo. 

These digital offerings were made accessible worldwide starting last week after once being limited to Philippine viewers, putting ABS-CBN News on track to reach an even wider audience on YouTube. 

ABS-CBN News’ diamond award comes only a month after another digital accomplishment for the Kapamilya network. 

In October, ABS-CBN Entertainment remained far-and-away the most subscribed YouTube channel in the Philippines, as it crossed 30 million subscribers. 

ABS-CBN Entertainment - which now has 30.8 million subscribers and nearly 40 billion lifetime views - is the home of Kapamilya Online Live, the day-long live stream of ABS-CBN programs on YouTube.

Runners now have a chance to quench their thirst to complete a marathon even in the new normal sans the crowds and throng of other runners as SKY presents the third and final leg of the RUNRIO Trilogy Run Asia Virtual Run happening from November 28 to December 12. 

In a virtual run, participants can run the distance they registered within their neighborhood or even on a treadmill at home. They are required to use a GPS-tracking app and a watch to time their run. Runners will be asked to take a photo of their race results and send them to within two weeks. 

To help participants prepare for the rigorous marathon, SKY will hold a series of training activities online and on cable. 

On November 21, 4 PM, runners can train with Coach Rio during the live "SKY Rise and Grind" pre-run work-out via F.Y.E. Channel on Kumu. There will also be pre-recorded workout sessions on November 15 and 27 airing on SKY Community Channel 955 and RUNRIO's official Facebook page and Instagram TV. 

On November 28, participants are invited for "Kick Off to T3," a pre-run warm-up program courtesy of Coach Rio, followed by the ceremonial gun start of the virtual marathon. Also airing via SKY's community channel 955 as well as on RUNRIO's FB and IG TV. 

Meanwhile, 50 lucky participants have the chance to interact with Coach Rio himself on "Huddle with Coach Rio" via a live Zoom session happening on December 5. Special prizes and fun chit-chats await the runners during the online checkpoint hangout. 

And as SKY aims to make a difference, it partners with ABS-CBN Foundation's "Pantawid ng Pag-ibig: Isang Daan. Isang Pamilya." campaign with its 100 Steps Challenge happening on December 6. 

Anyone can join the fund-raising activity by posting on social media an actual video of themselves completing 100 steps, with the hashtag #100Hakbang1Pamilya. The first 300 runners to complete the challenge will receive a commemorative shirt. Meanwhile, SKY will make a donation for "Pantawid ng Pag-ibig" on behalf of all participants who joined the 100 Steps Challenge. 

The RUNRIO Trilogy is the country's premier running series designed for runners who want to complete a marathon via a progression running program. In progression running, participants run at a slower pace until their speed and distance gradually increase at each virtual leg. 

The annual event, which began in 2010, consists of a series of races, with each leg increasing in distance, starting from 21K, then 32K on the second leg, and finish with a 42K on its final leg.
