In keeping with his love for physical activities and the great outdoors, Gerald Anderson brought his avid supporters to a surprise trip to Ocean Adventure on June 12.
The Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition season 1 alumnus channeled his soldier dreams into reality for a whole day celebration of his 10th year anniversary in the business, which he called the Anderson Boot Camp.
To further get the military feel, the fan groups who are present at the event were given the apt team names.
There was the Team Army composed of the AshRald and Sagefied members, Team Coast Guard composed of the Super Friends and Gerald’s Angels, Team Air Force composed of the Geraldnaticx, Team Navy composed of the Solid Kimeralds, and Team Marines composed of Kimerald 4ever members.
He personally welcomed his supporters to the venue and ushered in the event with a welcome speech. Along with Gerald’s fans, also present in the event were some of his friends like Joe Vargas, who spearheaded the warm up session before the games officially began.
To get the ball rolling, the supporters battled it out first in a cheering competition. AshRald and Sagefied (Team Army) won the first prize.
According to Gerald, he has long wanted to attend a real boot camp hence the theme of his anniversary event.
“This is my way of giving back to them for the past 10 years of support,” Gerald said in spending the special moment with his fans.
The boot camp’s obstacles were especially designed and named after Gerald’s previous projects. They were Meso Soup, Mayan Pizza, Inside Track, Challenge Pitch, Budoy Factor, Bone to Pick, Kayak, and Catch Me I’m Rollin’.
After the nail-biting competition, Gerald Angels and Super Friends (Team Coast Guard) finished first place and eventually bagged the trophy.
Gerald shared that the boot camp, which took almost six months to mount, was also his way of allowing his fans into his active lifestyle.
“Yan yung no.1 factor kasi as a person nasa isang position ako to inspire other people and ‘yun ‘yung mga gusto kong i-inspire eh. ‘Yung maging physically active and healthy,” he said.
After the main event, Gerald had some time to bond and chat with his supporters. The boot camp ended with a sumptuous meal in boodle fight style.
Gerald’s 10th year anniversary event would not be possible without the help of his sponsors Ocean Adventure, Cosmo Cee, Hearts & Bells, H&M, UniSilver, Kopiko LA Coffee and Secosana Urban Bags.
