Bangkok--18 Oct--Ascott International Management
Ascott International Management (Thailand) held their Virtual Run Awards Ceremony at Somerset Park Suanplu, Bangkok on the 5th of October 2019 in aid of Save the Children.

There was tremendous support from the community as 400 participants took part in the 50km virtual run during the month of September, raising over THB200,000. It was a fun morning for all as the event started with a Muay Tai demonstration followed by a body combat class before the highly anticipated lucky draws for the attractive prizes.

Since Save the Children started operations in Thailand in 1984, they have supported vulnerable children through programs including Education, Children Protection and Child Safety for Survival. With drowning being the second cause of death for Thai children, claiming the lives of approximately 1,000 kids each year, Ascott (Thailand) is advocating water safety programs for school children.

Mr. Brian Tan, Country General Manager for The Ascott Limited in Thailand & Laos, said:

"Ascott's 4-fold mission includes people, customers, investors and the community. It is an inherent part of our corporate culture to give back to the communities in which we operate. Across our 13 operating properties currently in Thailand and Laos, there are multiple initiatives every quarter that benefits various local charities. This year's cluster partnership with Save the Children is particularly meaningful because we are supporting a cause that actually saves the lives of Thai children. We would like to thank Save the Children, our partners and the community in joining us for this cause."

Ms. Arunrat Wattanapalin, Child Health & Safety Programme Coordinator replied by saying:

"We would like to sincerely thank the kind support of Ascott (Thailand) in taking a step forward in leading others to recognize the rights of a child to survive from preventable causes such as children drowning. Save the Children is really grateful for the efforts of Ascott in organizing the Virtual Run, not only to raise funds from the Thai public, but also showing their commitment to the corporate sector in saving children's lives in Thailand".

Ascott International Management (Thailand) in conjunction with Save the Children, would like to thank all the participants and their sponsors, Fitfac, Tofusan, Baan Ice and Organic Farm for their support.
