Laguna Phuket Foundation
The Laguna Phuket Marathon 2024 is not just a race; it’s a celebration of community and generosity. Building upon the charitable triumphs of previous years, runners are warmly invited to contribute to the ‘Laguna Phuket Foundation’, an organization established in 2009 that’s steadfast in its commitment to social growth and environmental preservation.
The foundation’s heart beats for the local communities, with a strong focus on educational development and societal advancement. The Developing Sustainable Schools Program, including School Partnership Project, Survival Swim with Laguna Phuket, and Laguna Phuket’s “Fully Booked!” Mobile Learning Center, symbolizes this dedication. But the foundation’s reach extends further, with continued support for the vital sea turtle conservation efforts of Phuket Marine Biological Center and the 3rd Area Naval Command, Royal Thai Navy, as well as the Laguna Phuket Community English Language Center.
The marathon also serves as a stage to uplift and support the ‘Children First Fund’ (CFF), an initiative that warms the hearts and fuels the dreams of over 400 orphans and underprivileged children across seven orphanages in Phuket. With the inspiring motto of ‘Nourishing Hearts, Inspiring Dreams,’ CFF makes tangible impacts in the lives of those most in need.
Become a part of this incredible journey by making a donation to the foundation during the online registration process. Your contribution can make waves of change. Join us in this year’s Laguna Phuket Marathon and run for a cause that goes beyond the finish line.
