Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort supports Ride4Kids

BY TONY PEDRONI — The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort recently supported a local charity event Ride4Kids.

The 6-day event was an 850km (528 mi) bike ride from Hua-Hin to Phuket to raise funds for three local charities including our own Outrigger share4change initiative.

I was arm-twisted into joining 13 other riders for the week and while I am still struggling to sit down 2 days after finishing, have to say the experience of riding off the beaten track through stunning Thai countryside was an experience I will never forget.

The event ended with a fundraising dinner at Metzo’s supported by over 100 guests from the local community who, perhaps influenced by a couple of glasses of wine, donated generously at the silent auction. Funds raised will help support our community initiative to improve the facilities at an under-funded local school, Baan Khok Wat Mai.
