Koh Samui, Thailand

Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, in association with The Thai Red Cross Society, is back with the Cancer Care Charity Fun Run for the 12th consecutive year. The run will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2019, starting at Nathon Pier. All proceeds from the event will go to the Cancer Research Centre at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thailand.

Commenting on the success of the event over the years, Sean Mosher, General Manager Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui says, “Having been a part of Four Seasons for 17 years in multiple locations, I have witnessed the passion for this global charitable event by individuals, families and local companies. It gives us the pride and privilege as Four Seasons to continue hosting the run annually, and for years to come.”

Registration for the event begins at 6:00 am, followed by a group warm-up to get into the mood of the proceedings. Participants can choose to run or walk the two, five or ten kilometre routes, as the event kicks off at 7:00 am.

Donations are priced at THB 300 per person including a race t-shirt, or THB 400 for a polo shirt. All entries include a breakfast box and a chance to win prizes in the lucky draw.

More than a decade since Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui first staged its Charity Run, the event has so far raised an amazing THB 10 million for cancer research projects in Thailand. Last year saw a record participation of more than 900 people at the run and raised THB 1.4 million. The Haematological Cancer Research Centre and the Genetic Cancer Research Centre at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital under the auspices of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, President of the Thai Red Cross Society, will receive the proceeds from this charity event to further their vital work in the field of cancer care and awareness.
