Race To Survive

RACE TO SURVIVE – a fundraising event on the tropical island of Phuket

The Accor Race to Survive is an established, innovative and dynamic fundraising event. Building on the success of the event in other parts of the world, Race to Survive is being extended to Thailand to raise funds to “make a difference” for the kids of Thailand that need a helping hand.

March 22nd to March 25th 2010

Over four days teams will be pushed to the limit, completing a course that involves swimming, mountain biking, kayaking and running and camping at night, including a truly local Thai Island experience on Koh Lon Island. Having spent months training and raising funds for Yim Kids, competitors come together for four days, shoulder to shoulder, racing through a challenging course for a common purpose – to help put smiles on the faces of the children of Thailand.
