Luisito “Louie” Sangalang proved that no adversity can break the Filipino spirit when he represented FWD Life Philippines and conquered the grueling 42-kilometer FWD on April 16, 2018.

Running amid a ruggedly icy terrain and freezing temperature of minus 32 degrees, Sangalang finished the race in 11 hours and four minutes.

Louie Sangalang is a multi-sport athlete who survived cancer as a young adult. Currently, Sangalang is a healthy lifestyle and nutrition advocate.

He joined 10 other FWD-sponsored runners from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Japan, who are collectively known as the #FWDTeamAsia.

The FWD North Pole Marathon is an initiative of the new Pan-Asian insurance company with operations in eight Asian countries.
