The Luang Prabang Half Marathon is one of “the hottest destination runs in Asia”, according to CNN. The annual race started in 2014 as an initiative to benefit local Lao charities, including Lao Friends Hospital for Children.
Last year’s race took place on October 23rd, welcoming over 900 runners from 42 countries. Through the generosity of participants and their supporters, the Luang Prabang Half Marathon raised a total of $53,543 USD for children’s health in Laos. The entire hospital participated in the race, either as a runner, a medical volunteer. Clinical Outreach Coordinator, Kazumi, even ran the 7km race while pushing one of our patients in a wheelchair!
