At six o’clock in the morning, Thailand it is still pitch dark. However, temperatures are bearable, the traffic is still manageable and the air is probably at its cleanest at this time of the day. So, it was the ideal time to set out at Railway Park in the north of the city for the next leg of the Run for Clarity. With more than 500 pre-registrations, the run was already a hit before we started running. Together with World Vision, our NGO partner, and Nivea, a well-organized and laid out starting and finished area welcomed the early risers. The run took the sportsmen through the park under a canopy of trees that cast welcomed shadows across the paved path. Most runners left the gate at 6.30 am and completed their five kilometers within the hour. At seven-thirty a short winner ceremony concluded the event where runners not only had a chance to exercise but to learn more about our company objective to run a cumulative 40,075 kilometers to raise funds for 5,000 Clarity Water filters to be distributed through our NGO partners in countries where access to clean water is difficult or non-existent.In addition in Thailand, we partner with World Vision Thailand on a project to raise funds to donate toilets to 15 schools and nurseries in the Northeast to upgrade their sanitary situation and to provide training and education for clean and safe usage of toilets.
