Mission : To work together within the communities and to contribute to social responsibilities which aim at creating a generation of people with high degree of kindness.
This event is also a form of a great collaboration within the hotel unit under PHM Hospitality, such as FRii Bali Echo Beach, THE HAVEN Bali Seminyak, THE HAVEN SUITES Bali Berawa and ?????Fontana Hotel Bali, a PHM Collection.

These participants will pass through the rice fields, beaches, mural art walls, cafes & restaurants, temples, and local residents as well.

What are you running for? While ‘to get healthy’ is definitely the first answer hit, in the other side, we’re thinking of another thing we can do for the community through this event beside only healthy living accomplishments.
In accordance with the theme ‘Run-Fun-Donation’, raising donation and giving back to the community in need is the main purpose here.
From purchased tickets’ revenue to the auction of new goods/stuffs, hotel/restaurant vouchers, all of the fund will be donated to Yayasan Semara Putra, an orphanage in Klungkung area, where the orphans are mostly disable kids & teenagers.
