All proceeds from the event will be donated to the foundation, without any deductions.

How You Can Help Advance purchase tickets are available from the front office at all branches of Centre Point and cost 350 baht. Tickets are available on the day but we'd prefer participants to buy in advance to guarantee their place and also contribute to the smooth running of the event. The mini marathon consists of a 3.6-kilometre run, which will take place on the jogging track that runs around the edge of the lake in Benchakitti Park. The money that we raise from enrolment fees will go to the Na Kitti Foundation and help children with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and other conditions to lead more fulfilling lives by learning how to express themselves through art. It shouldn™t take more than 20 minutes, even if you walk the course, and you will have the pleasure of knowing that you have helped us to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.
