The Laguna Phuket Marathon 2019 continues to build on the charitable success of the past marathons with runners encouraged to raise money for charity through the “Laguna Phuket Foundation”.
Established in 2009, the foundation has been supporting educational and social development of local communities, marine and natural environmental conservation, and emergency relief.
Laguna Phuket Foundation’s initiatives includes the Developing Sustainable Schools Program, which consists of School Partnership Project, Survival Swim with Laguna Phuket, and Laguna Phuket’s “Fully Booked!” Mobile Learning Center. In addition, the foundation supports ongoing sea turtle conservation efforts by Phuket Marine Biological Center and 3rd Area Naval Command, Royal Thai Navy, and Laguna Phuket Community English Language Center.
Furthermore, the event was a platform to raise awareness and funds for “Children First Fund” (CFF), with an ideal of “Nourishing Hearts, Inspiring Dreams” to support the nutrition of needy children. CFF supported more than 400 orphans and underprivileged children in seven orphanages in Phuket.
You can be a supporter by making a donation to the foundation during the registration process online.
