Run for Children: Luang Prabang Half Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2017
Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC) is hosting the 5th annual Luang Prabang Half Marathon this year on Sunday, October 22.
The Luang Prabang Half Marathon has been called one of “Asia’s top destination races” by CNN Travel. Last year we had over 900 runners and we expect to double that number this year. More information about the race is available here.
Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC) is the only free hospital and the only children’s hospital in northern Laos. We provide the area with its only neonatal unit, serving as a lifeline for thousands of children. Last July, we opened our operating theater, where we have conducted over 430 successful operations.
Due to unforeseen donor hardship, we are having to cut back on surgeries this year. This doesn’t have to happen. Please support our race or donate directly at www.fwab.org/donate. Your donation makes a significant difference. All donations and funds raised from the race will go directly to supporting patient care.
For runners that raise at least USD $250, the normal entry fee to the race will be waived. Once you have hit the minimum target, please send an email with your runner details and the link to your personal CrowdRise page to: firstname.lastname@example.org
