Triathlon campaigners Gerald Anderson, Jake Cuenca and Matteo Guidicelli take time out from their hectic schedules to lead the big cast of celebrities vying in the Sun Life CyclePH on Saturday at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

The 40-km event is one of the seven categories lined up in the Sun Life CyclePH, the first of the SunPiology Duo, a fun run/cycling fund-raiser founded by Pascual also staged to raise funds for the underprivileged kids under Pascual’s Hebreo Foundation.
