Angkor Wat Half Marathon Weekend.. A Success!

IMG_1652

This past Sunday, we were excited to welcome over 40 of our international supporters to Siem Reap to participate alongside 68 AHC staff in the Angkor Wat Half Marathon on behalf of AHC’s “OneTeam – OneRace – OneDay” event.

The weekend was a great success and we want to say thank you to all those who helped make this possible!

4On the day before the race, all participants joined the welcome reception held in the Visitor’s Center. In addition to food and fun, there were speeches from Mrs. Sinketh Arun, AHC External Relations Manager, and Dr. Bill Housworth, AHC Executive Director, and most importantly, many thanks were given to all those that helped make the marathon fundraising efforts a great feat.

Following the Welcome Reception, groups were taken around the hospital to tour the facilities and see firsthand all that their fundraising efforts will go to support.

We are all incredibly grateful for their efforts to prepare for the race and fund raise in the months leading up to the marathon weekend. We know the hard work they put into it and we want to take this opportunity to say thank you again.

On the morning of the marathon whilst it was still dark out, all participants hopped in their tuk tuks and headed out to Angkor Wat for the race.

We are proud to say that all participants completed the race and most importantly, reported having a great time running around the beautiful temples and through the Cambodian countryside. A big highlight for everyone were the crowds of Cambodian children alongside the course cheering and high-fiving them along the way!
