The fundraising event was the first of many, with another one planned for February 1, 2015.

The event featured a fun marathon, which was contested by six teams, drawing a large crowd of spectators.

Some participants showed their support by purchasing raffle tickets, others by bringing clothes and food to donate.

Each marathon team consisted of three members, who all had to pass a series of tests: The first involved a race to the top of the hill in the jungle, the way marked with multicoloured balloons.
The second part involved manoeuvring in a huge children’s zone (large net) to collect colorful balls in a basket, which was followed by the third station, a zip line activity.

Participants also visited a local goat farm, which had several goat calves, some just two weeks old!

Guests enjoyed feeding them milk. The pasteurised milk was also on sale.

Raffle prizes included tickets to Jungle Xtrem Adventures Park and Radenska water for third prize; The second tier prize included a children’s bicycle provided by Jungle Xtrem Adventures Park, as well as a voucher for B15,000 in advertising from The Phuket News. The top prize was a large fridge, sponsored by Phuket Consulting.

After the marathon, all participants relaxed in the cafeteria at the top of the hill where they enjoyed the breathtaking views and a selection of tasty tropical fruits.
