Community Spotlights

On June 12th, PADI Platinum Course Director Camille Lemmens ran for ocean conservation in the Laguna Phuket International Half Marathon raising more than $1770 for Project AWARE.

Camille crossed the finishing line with a top time of 2 hours, 2 minutes and 25 seconds. More than 5,000 runners from 45 countries took part in the race which is becoming one of the biggest growing events in the region.

“I’m satisfied with my running time during the International Phuket Marathon but I'm even more pleased with the amount I was able to raise for Ocean Protection” says Camille.

Camille managed to raise 500,-AUD and 7.250,-THB and together with Mia Trineghi, a French runner based in Singapore, he raised another 1.000,-USD.

A big THANK YOU goes to Camille, Mia and to all those who sponsored them including Dive Academy, Infinity Divers and Stuart Hurley one of Camille’s former IDC candidate.

Camille's next scheduled running event will be at Bangkok's Midnight run, 8th October, a 12 km run on Sukhumvit road, dowtown Bangkok.

Well done Camille! and best of luck with the training for your next running and fundraising challenge.

From all of us at Project AWARE, thank you!
