The lead singer of rock band Bodyslam ran for 2 months to raise funds for the country’s Public hospitals. He managed to complete this grueling 2-months run and successfully raised over 1.1 billion baht (USD 33 million). He ran for 11 hospitals.
Artiwara Kongmalai, better known as Toon Bodyslam, completed his 2,214km run from Thailand’s southernmost corner to its northernmost tip on Monday (Dec 25). He began his journey on the 1st November, inspiring many to think about how they can help the less fortunate. With his act of courage and kindness, he has become Thailand’s most admired person of the year.
He was greeted by cheers from thousands of people when he approached his finishing point at the Mae Sai border point in the Chiang Rai province, Thailand’s northernmost spot.
