Once again, the Embassy of Canada will be co-sponsoring the 5th Annual Cancer Care Run
All are invited to participate in the run. Runners must obtain a minimum donation of Baht 350 to offset the cost of an official Cancer Care t-shirt, or Baht 500 for the cost of an official Cancer Care polo shirt. Participation also includes a breakfast box and the chance to win exciting prizes such as accommodation vouchers at various Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, and much more.
Continuing the legacy of Canadian cancer research activist Terry Fox (1958-1981), last year’s Run attracted approximately 3,000 runners, successfully raising 3.9M Baht for the Genetic Cancer Research Centre at Chulalongkorn Hospital, under the auspices of The Thai Red Cross Society. Proceeds from this year’s Run will go towards research projects currently conducted by the Hematological Cancer Research Centre at Chulalongkorn Hospital.
