Lampang – Thai rock star Artiwara Kongmalai, aka Toon Bodyslam, reached the northern Thai province of Lampang on Wednesday as his fundraising marathon reached over 900 million baht in donations.

Toon spent eight hours longer than planned as thousands of his admirers thronged along the route to greet him. The rocker joined Pakakayor ethnic villagers in singing one of his songs.

Wednesday’s itinerary consisted of legs totaling 74.9 kilometers. Toon however finished just 64.6 kilometers due to the mountainous terrain. The musician and his fellow runners are resting in Lampang and will set out for Phayao province on Friday.

Donations to his fundraising marathon for 11 hospitals have surpassed 919 million baht. Toon has already reached 18 provinces out of the planned 20. The much-loved singer aims to complete his South-North journey in Chiang Rai by Christmas.
