Jump for Charity!

24 November 2016, BKK Kids

Jump for charity (and good heart health) with Rockin’ Jump! From now until 28 February 2017, the company is running a campaign, “My Heart Jumps for Charity, to promote fitness among kids and adults alike through sales of a special monthly pass.

For 2,500 baht, each pass allows up to 2 hours of jump time per day with free companion days and free jump socks. Ten percent of the pass proceeds with be donated to the “Rak Jai Thai” or “Healing Hearts” program, a joint effort of the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation and The Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand that helps underprivileged children with congenital heart disease.

Each year, almost 8,000 Thai children suffer from congenital heart defects. Nearly half need surgery to prevent death or serious physical limitations. However, most of these children come from impoverished families in rural areas who cannot afford the high cost of treatment. In addition, public hospitals have limited funding and many needy children face long waits to receive critical operations.

As part of their CSR activities, Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation and Bumrungrad International Hospital, through its team of pediatric cardiologists and surgeons, provide operations at no cost to underprivileged Thai patients. Since the inception of the project in 2003, more than 720 underprivileged children from 50 provinces in Thailand have received heart surgeries.
