It is their third time hosting this event. Donations will be presented to the Ramathibodi Foundation’s cancer patient fund at Ramathibodi Hospital.

“Brother expects over 1600 people to participate in the event. Last year, we raised over 650,000 baht for the Ramathibodi Foundation. This year, we expect no less than last year. The amount of donations raised will be presented in their entirety, without any deductions.

Brother will continue to continuously organize social events in Thailand, joined by our customers, partners, employees, and management teams. For this the company has received the ‘Global Charter Practice Award’ from Brother’s headquarters in Japan. The award winner is chosen by Brother branches around the world.
This event follows Brother headquarters’ philosophy and vision to organize creative activities for society. The vision distinguishes activities into two categories; 1. Environmentally related activities 2. Local community activities. For environmentally related activities, we have planted mangrove forests for over 8 years. And for local community activities, we have organized the ‘Golden Ring’ project to aid cancer patients. Brother Thailand also organizes the ‘Brother Run & Share’ to comply with the vision to help cancer patients in need in Thailand.
