The Charity Fun Run aims to raise funds for its charity partner “Kao Project”, a campaign by Mr. Artiwara Kongmalaihas, Thailand’s leading rock star and lead vocalist of Bodyslam band, best known as “Toon Bodyslam”. Last year Toon Bodyslam ran 400 kilometers in 10 days to raise funds for medical equipment for Bang Saphan Hospital in Prachuap Kiri Khan. Even though Toon won’t be able to make it this year due to his commitment with another charitable event, the project will go on with an aim to raise bigger funds for more than 10 hospitals in Thailand this year.

“Every 100 THB from each “LPT Charity Fun Run” registration Laguna Phuket will top up the amount to double the funds raised at this year’s Laguna Phuket Triathlon”, said Ravi Chandran, Managing Director of Laguna Phuket
