TCIS Teachers, rep’d Bang Phli and supported TGR in the process!
Julie and I want to sincerely thank the TCIS International School teaching community and Khun Suvanee Promchan for their support of a youth sports day in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand this past April! In a neighborhood on the Mun River, near downtown, there is a field, more like a dirt clearing, that served as the venue for this inaugural sports day and it was a tremendous success!
TCIS teachers bought t shirts in the Spring of 2018 and the proceeds helped to lay chalk lines, buy two soccer nets, goals, balls and provide post game coconut ice cream for the participating players!
The sports day would not have been possible without the efforts of Khun Suvanee, a community activist and former Field Director for Mahidol University’s Institute of Nutrition, who was essential in collaborating, organizing and implementing the event on the ground in Ubon. As a result of her determination, dirt clearing was transformed into a usable soccer pitch and sports day venue!
The Good Run is a passion project for Julie and I and our goal is to grow it’s impact, especially in places where we have been fortunate to live and work. The ride has been and will continue to be, a positive life changing experience for our family and it’s important to us that we give back along the way. The Good Run will allow us and hopefully others (at home and abroad) to accomplish the goal of giving back along the way. The Ubon project, with your help, will grow access to youth sports in Ubon and ideally, beyond.
There are three ways you can help now, donate on the website here, buy another t shirt (email us) or share a post on social about “giving back along the way,” use #soistrong in your post!
Thank you, TCIS and Khun Suvanee for your support!

The Good Run is helping to support Broward County’s McArthur High School boys basketball team in their mission to compete in an out of state Thanksgiving basketball tournament. TGR is kicking off it’s capacity building campaign by pledging a donation to help with the expenses of the trip to the 2016 Tip Off Classic in Rockford, Illinois on November 21. With help from our supporters and fans of McArthur basketball we can make this trip a life changing experience for the young athletes involved. The Mustangs join a competitive field of teams, all from the Midwestern part of the US, to test their mettle and experience a Chicago brand of basketball.
New to the field, and a great get for the tournament, is McArthur High School from Florida. That is a long trip to make for a tournament, which shows the drawing power of the Classic. McArthur lost last season in their regional finals, but they only graduated 4 players off of that team, and they have several Division I prospects on their roster. They will also have some of the best size in the tournament.
Welcome to The Good Run. A non profit with a mission to build the future through basketball. We need your help to get going. Our goal is to build capacity in order to make a positive impact on youth athletics in the US and abroad. Our first project is a partnership with the MacArthur boys varsity basketball program. They were invited to play in a regional tournament in Chicago and TGR is doing what it can to help support that goal. TGR has identified projects where equipment is needed, courts can be built, clinics could be offered and competitions could be supported from Morrisville, Vermont to Bangkok, Thailand.
