BANGKOK, Thailand - July 25, 2018 - PRLog -- CapitaLand's wholly owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott) sold out its annual Ascott Charity Run in Thailand this year. The event has enjoyed great support by the public since it was first introduced in 2016 and this time, the 500 tickets were sold out a month in advance of the event date.

This year's Ascott Charity Run 2018 was held on 17th June 2018 at Lumpini Park as part of a fundraising campaign to raise THB 1,000,000 by the end of the year to give back to the community.

All proceeds and donations together with other fundraising campaigns during the year will go towards helping more than 500 underprivileged children at Doi Wiangpha Pittaya School, a remote hill-tribe school located within the Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai province in Thailand.

Ascott International Management (Thailand) Limited, in partnership with iCare Thailand Foundation has been supporting Doi Wiangpha Pittaya School since 2014 to create many sustainable development projects, including building its dormitory for the hill-tribe students.

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

"Our mission at Ascott is to take care of our four key constituents – our People, our Customers, our Investors and our Communities.  This run and the funds raised to help Doi Wiangpha is our way of giving back to the community and ensuring that wherever we operate, we make a positive and continuous impact and contribution.

We thank iCare Thailand for their partnership over the past 5 years and we hope this would inspire the children at Doi Wiangpha to continue their pursuit of education to secure brighter futures for themselves and their families."

Ascott Charity Run 2018 concluded successfully with all participants receiving Ascott medals and the top 3 finishers in the male and female categories winning exclusive stays in Ascott Thailand properties.
