FWD Life Philippines, one of the country’s fastest-growing insurers, recently launched its “Blaze a Trail in the Arctic” campaign in conjunction with the FWD North Pole Marathon 2018, the world’s coolest marathon set on April 9.

FWD will sponsor 10 runners from six countries across Asia who will showcase their passion and determination to take on extreme challenges and embrace this experience of a lifetime, traversing the 42-kilometer path with an average temperature of -30 degrees centigrade.

“As a brand that continues to change the way people feel about insurance, FWD saw the North Pole Marathon as a unique platform to empower people to overcome extreme challenges, to pursue their aspirations without worries, and to ignite their passion for life-enriching experiences,” said FWD Life Philippines president and CEO Peter Grimes.

FWD Philippines will be represented by Louie Sangalang, a multi-sport athlete and a cancer survivor who engages in mixed-martial arts, boxing, and triathlons.
