For the past 18 years, Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok has committed to hold a charity run to raise funds for cancer research in conjunction with its sister properties in Chiang Mai and Koh Samui.

Last year’s run with approximately 3,000 runners, raised successfully 3.7 million Baht which was donated to the ‘Hematological Cancer Research Centre’ at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital under the auspices of the Thai Red Cross and Red Crescent Society.

The organizing committee of ‘Cancer Care’ at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is now organizing the sixth ‘Cancer Care’ charity fun run, referred to as the Terry Fox Run a few years ago, in Lumpini Park on Saturday, 23 February 2013 in association with the Thai Red Cross and Red Crescent Society with the support of the Embassy of Canada to Thailand, as well as major sponsors such as B. Grimm & Co., R.O.P., Ananda Development, Boonrawd Brewery, Starbucks Coffee (Thailand), and media partners.

Proceeds from the run will go towards the research projects currently conducted by the ‘Hematological Cancer Research Centre’ at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital.

Beginning and ending inside the Lumpini Park, the run promises to be a fun and enjoyable Saturday outing for families, joggers and health enthusiasts of all ages.

 Both the 5 kms and 10 kms routes are perfect for running and walking. Families with young children as well as the elderly can participate. Various activities are also lined up for all children at the run with prizes awaiting them.

To add more fun and excitement to the run, a Queen’s trophy will be awarded to the largest group. Prizes also await the participants who reach the finish line for the 5 kms and 10 kms male and female runners. This year will see an additional prize awarded to the child runner ranging from 5 to 10 years old, who reaches the finish line first after a 1 km run.

Registration is from 07:00 to 07:45 and the official starting time is at 08:05.

All can participate in the run with a minimum donation of Baht 350 representing the cost of an official ‘Cancer Care’ t-shirt or Baht 500 representing the cost of an official ‘Cancer Care’ polo shirt which also includes a breakfast box and the chance to win prizes such as accommodation vouchers at various Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and many others.
