The “Together with Thais Against Cancer” cycling tour recently stopped in Hua Hin, and the city couldn’t be more pleased. The project was located in front of Pone Kingpetch Park, not far from Chatchai Market, and was soliciting the public for donations to benefit people with cancer.
Cancer specialist Dr. Anirut said he worked at both Bangkok’s Phayathai and Samitivej hospitals. At Bangkok’s Samitivej Hospital, researchers have discovered an alarming rise in the number of cases of cancer in the general population. As a result, the medical staff devised “Unite Thai against cancer,” better known in the countryside as “Doctor Moo fights cancer,” in which they rode bicycles, advocated for greater public health awareness, and solicited public donations to be added to the Patient Treatment Fund.
He began cycling in Chiang Rai province, has since covered 63 provinces, and plans to complete all 77 provinces—a feat I usually accomplish on my own—by pedaling south. Existing cycling groups or clubs will also be approached upon arrival in the province and asked to join the cycling team. We’ll keep on riding until we reach Kui Buri District or the end of the southern region, whichever comes first.
The Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin, Dr. Jeerawat Prahmanee, Ms. Nonglak Phadungtos of the City Council, and the members of the Rak Hua Hin Bicycle Club recently welcomed Dr. Anirut Niranam of Bangkok’s Phyathai Hospital.
