Around 2,000 runners participated on the day and we sold 2,873 tickets, generating well over a million baht before cost deductions. We were also blessed by three donations from hotel guests as follows: an auction initiated by Felix von Jascheroff, a german tv Star staying at pullman phuket arcadia over the weekend and who wants to help raise even more funds back in germany; the Schmid Family, guests of pullman phuket arcadia who donated 75,000 baht to the cause; a third donation came from the langford Family, guests at pullman Khao lak,
who donated 5,000 baht.
There were three cheerleader teams along with a DJ to root for the runners and a lot of prizes in the lucky draw. additionally, athit – a special-needs runner from Bangkok who flew down for the race – was our ‘last’ runner who showed such a big heart, finishing the run in 3.30 hrs.
The funds raised are aimed to improve the education and well-being of underprivileged children in the area. Our priority is to raise funds for local schools in phuket and nearby provinces and to support the accor Yim Kids project which is a part of ACCOR HOTELS’ corporate social responsibility project.
