Help me raise funds for changing lives through the arts in Battambang

My Story

Support Me in the Sangker River Run for Phare Ponleu Selpak

I'm CHIM GUANGHUI and I'm running the Sangker River Run: 30 km for 30 Years of Phare Ponleu Selpak on Saturday 20th January 2024. This is a fundraising event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Phare Ponleu Selpak, a non-profit organization that provides arts education and social support to vulnerable children and youth in Battambang, Cambodia.

Phare Ponleu Selpak (which means "The Brightness of the Arts" in Khmer) was founded in 1994 by a group of young Cambodian artists who had survived the Khmer Rouge regime. They used art as a way to cope with trauma and to express themselves. Today, Phare Ponleu Selpak offers free education in visual arts, circus, music, theater, and animation to over 1,200 students, as well as social and professional support to help them achieve their full potential.

I'm running the Sangker River Run because I believe in the power of art to transform lives and communities. I've seen the amazing work that Phare Ponleu Selpak does, and I want to support them in their mission to empower the next generation of Cambodian artists and leaders. The Sangker River Run is a 30 km race that starts at the ancient temple of Phnom Banan and ends at the Phare Ponleu Selpak campus. It's a challenging but rewarding course that showcases the beauty and diversity of Battambang.

I need your help to reach my fundraising goal of $3000. Every dollar you donate will go directly to Phare Ponleu Selpak and will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children and youth who benefit from their programs. No amount is too small or too big, and every donation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support and generosity. Together, we can help Phare Ponleu Selpak continue to change lives through the arts for another 30 years and beyond.
