PADI Course Director Camille Lemmens ran for Ocean Protection

This last Sunday, 12th June 2011, award winning Platinum PADI Course Director Camille Lemmens completed a half marathon during the Laguna International Phuket Marathon event. It was his first half marathon in a race setting and he completed the race in 2 hours, 2 minutes and 25 seconds, a satisfactory time for him.

Since he was running for Ocean Protection as part of the newly designed Project Aware campaign, he had three Singaporean ladies run the half marathon with him. Mia, who’s pictured above, managed to raise 1.000,-USD. Hats off and many thanks to her!

Camille managed to raise 500,-AUD and 7.250,-THB so far. Please feel free to donate more. Either contact Camille directly or have a look at the Project Aware pages for direct donations.
