Last October 23, the Thai Red Cross Society hosted a marathon run called ‘HIV RUN’ with lots of companies like SCB Bank, UNICEF, Milo, MK in Lumpini Park. I participated in it with lots of other friends. Everyone who participated got to donate money for making a cure for HIV. When I first heard about the race, I ran to our school’s office so I could participate and I gathered a lot of friends telling them that we could help a lot of people just for paying some money and participating.
HIV is a virus that attacks cells in the immune system, the system that protects us and fights off against illness. As HIV viruses attack and attack, our body’s immune system will get weaker, unable to defend our body from diseases and illness. HIV is found in semen, breastmilk, blood, vaginal and anal fluids, and cannot be transmitted through sweat, saliva, or urine.
My friends were already aware of Tunza Eco Generation, so we decided to take a picture of ourselves before the race started around 5am in the morning. Also, I promoted Tunza Eco Generation in our school by giving out goods such as the pencils, brochures to who participated in the HIV RUN. I hope in next year’s HIV RUN I can see Tunza Eco Generation’s Logo in the sponsors.
HIV, and these kind of sex diseases might be not related with Tunza Eco Generation since it’s not environmental or stuff, but I think if it’s a problem that’s hurting Earth, it is also a issue Tunza Eco Generation ambassadors MUST talk about. Let’s also take up a step for HIV! Thanks for reading my report!
