Now onto what I am doing and why am I doing it? (in the unlikely case that you are interested).

In the year 2020, I will turn 20. This is a great opportunity to try something new and challenge myself, so I thought to myself why not do it for a great cause? In the year 2020, I will be running in 20 different events: including 10 half-marathons, 2 marathons and 8 other running events (possibly more half-marathons and marathons, depending on my legs condition, hopefully not too sore by then) to raise £2,020 for East African Playgrounds charity. I will keep an update on my progress on the blog post. And just in case you are wondering if the recurrent 20 theme was deliberate, the answer is yes.

Growing up in Bangkok, where you could be standing in front of the most luxurious department store and 10 m across the street there is a ten years old kids desperately risking their live on the road selling flower rings, I can't help but notice the great disparity in wealth and opportunity. It might be somewhat presumptuous of me, but at least I want these children to be able to enjoy their childhood while also having the opportunity and skillset necessary for their future. I believe East African Playgrounds is a great embodiment of this beliefs. Hence, I would greatly appreciate every donation made. Thank you for giving up your time and I hope you have a nice day!!!
