Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
The 2023 BISP Golden Mile run is set to take place on Wednesday 13th December. The “golden mile” is a one-mile (1.6 km) running race, and in BISP folklore has become a prestigious challenge and a key annual event for our students who aim to beat their personal best time over the mile-long course.
The Golden (S)MILE event will take place following the run, and is an opportunity for the whole BISP community (students, staff, and families) to participate in a wellbeing fun run to support our BISP charity partners. The (S)MILE acronym stands for:
- S – SERVICE – through action
- M – MEANING – running for a reason.
- I – INCLUSIVITY – engagement at an appropriate level.
- L – LEADERSHIP – student-led through organisation and participation
- E – EXERCISE – a showcase for physical literacy and health
Following the Golden Mile, all students will participate in the Golden (S)MILE fun run featuring a Christmas-themed interactive course known as the ‘Bauble Run’’. Our aim is to have some festive fun whilst raising awareness and funds for five BISP-supported charity organisations:
- Scholars of Sustenance (SOS)
- Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation
- Phuket Sunshine Village
- SOS Children’s Villages Thailand
- Asia Center Foundation
We are lucky to have over 80 excited children from the organisations above joining us to share the fun as we walk, skip and run, collecting baubles for our House Christmas Tree.
So dust off your trainers, get your Christmas hats on and get ready for the ’Bauble Run’! The community is encouraged to donate to support the (S)MILE event using the QR code below. For every 100 Baht donated, 1 bauble and 1 House Point will be earned for your House, improving the chances of your House racing to victory.
