07 October Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel Presents the 9th ‘Care for Cancer-2017 Fun Run’
In association with the Thai Red Cross Society, and with the support of the Canadian Embassy and Thai-Canadian Chamber of Commerce (CanCham), Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel will present the 9th ‘Care for Cancer’ charity fun run on Saturday 18 November 2017 in Lumpini Park.
Anantara Siam Bangkok is proud to continue this annual event to raise funds for cancer research, a commitment they’ve held for over 20 years. Under the theme “I care b’coz….”, this charitable event allows supporters and participants to share and express how cancer touches our lives in different ways. The proceeds will be donated to the ‘Genetic Cancer Research Centre’ at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, under the auspices of The Thai Red Cross Society.
The ‘Fun Run’ takes place inside the Lumpini Park and promises to be a fun and enjoyable Saturday outing for families, joggers and health enthusiasts of all ages. Both the 5 km and 10 km routes are perfect for running, walking or strolling at your own pace. Families with young children, or elderly relatives, are welcome to join the morning with various activities and prizes awaiting them. To add to the excitement, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit Trophy will be awarded to the largest participating group. The first male and female runners to reach the finish lines of the 5 km and 10 km, will also win a prize. In honour of the children taking part, the youngest running participants will receive recognition. Registration is from 7.30 am to 8.15 am and the official starting time is at 8.30 am.
A minimum donation of THB 350 is required for race participation, representing the cost of an official ‘Care for Cancer’ t-shirt or THB 500 for a polo shirt, which also entitles you to a breakfast box and the chance to win exciting prizes such as accommodation vouchers at various Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas and many others.
Another event, the 10th Clutter Sale took place earlier this year at the hotel, to raise funds for cancer research in conjunction with the ‘Fun Run’. This one-day event was organised by the NewsMakers, comprising of senior editors, communications and public relations professionals in April 2017.
