As the month of September dawns, the Run to Remember event organised by the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation (LAF) kicks off from the Taj Samudra North Lawn on 1 September at 4:30 p.m. 

LAF is privileged to have the hotel Taj Samudra host this event for the fourth consecutive year.

The five-kilometre run starts and ends at these premises from the garden near the hotel’s patisserie Pebbles. Souvenirs and memorabilia will be sold by volunteers and any level of support will be appreciated. The run will be flagged off by our very own Jay and Johann – the first Sri Lankans to summit Mount Everest.Runners must be at the venue by 4 p.m. to register themselves at which point they will be briefed. It is encouraged that all runners purchase a t-shirt to help raise awareness and funds for the Foundation.

Friends of LAF, the Hash Harriers, who have participated at this event from the inception, will be there and any enthusiastic runner can also register with the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation on 2667080. Pictures of last year’s run says it all.
