The Panasonic Group in Thailand, led by CEO Mr. Hidekazu Ito, reinforces its dedication to social activities through the organization of the 'Panasonic HERO RUN for Charity 2023' under the theme 'BE A HERO-BE YOURSELF.' This charitable event, held for the third time, invited employees from all 14 companies under the Panasonic Group in Thailand, along with their families, business partners, and Panasonic scholarship students—totaling more than 1,400 people—to participate in running races covering distances of 2.75 kilometers, 5.5 kilometers, and 11 kilometers. The event encouraged employees and participants to prioritize their health and unite to foster the impactful spirit of 'giving' by donating a total of 154,900 baht to support 'The Impoverished Patient's Aid Project' of the Ramathibodi Foundation. This contribution aims to assist less fortunate patients at Ramathibodi Hospital who struggle with unaffordable medical bills, providing them access to quality healthcare. On this occasion, Professor Emeritus Dr. Pornchai Simaroj, M.D., The Lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, represented the institution in receiving the donation at Wachirabenjathat Park (Rotfai Park), Bangkok.

The 'Panasonic HERO RUN for Charity 2023' is a part of 'Panasonic Cares,' a CSR project carried out with the concept 'For the Well-being of People, Society, and the Planet.' It reinforces Panasonic's commitment to operating a sustainable business that prioritizes the health, well-being, safety, and comfort of people, society, and all life on Earth. In addition, the event motivated Panasonic staff to track their running distances, with each 10 km completed translating to planting one tree. This year, participants collectively covered a distance of 5,700 km, resulting in the planting of a remarkable 570 trees. These trees will contribute to creating green forests in Khon Kaen, which is among the provinces housing Panasonic factories.
