Goldilocks 45th Anniversary Fun and Sweet Run

When I was a kid, I am always looking forward to attending birthday parties because of the cake. Yes, I am a cake lover. I have a sweet tooth (obviously!) and everytime I attend birthday parties the most common birthday cake they serve is made by Goldilocks.

Who doesn't know Goldilocks? Well, despite being the main person of the famous children story with the three bears, Goldilocks is the biggest bakeshop in the Philippines.

Just a trivia about Goldilocks Bakeshop: In 1966, two sisters Milagros and Clarita, and their sister-in-law, Doris, decided to open a small bakeshop along to the Pasong Tamo Street, Makati. The sisters have already been dabbling in the business for some time ---Milagros, by supplying chiffon slices to a number of Manila’s canteens, and Clarita, by baking and decorating cakes during special occasions in Bicol --- when they decided to take their hobby one step further. A third sister, Maria Flor, suggested that they name the enterprise “Goldilocks“, after the character in a fairy tale, aiming to make it easier for children and their mothers to remember its name; and because it suggested luck and prosperity.

So, to celebrate their 45th year in the business, Goldilocks wants to take part in promoting active lifestyle and health to the Filipinos, in partnership with RunRio Inc., they came up with the Goldilocks Fun Run. This is gonna be the first leg of the new RunRio Series Manila.
This year marks a significant milestone as Goldilocks celebrates 45 Goldilicious years of shared sweet and delightful memories with the Filipino. One of the highlights of this year’s celebrations will the the Goldilocks Fun Run scheduled on May 15, 2011 at the Bonifacio Global City.

With the month of May being the fiesta month, the Goldilocks Fun Run is set to be a fun-filled event for the whole family with fiesta themed activities and games that every family member will surely enjoy.
