Food & Beverage on the Run

AYANA Resort & Spa Baliís F&B Director Jerome Colson is in Big Hurry to Make a Difference for Baliís Poor


(2/12/2012)

Jerome Colson, the Executive Assistant Manager for Food & Beverage at the AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali, describes himself as “an avid runner.”

Avid? Perhaps “addicted” is a more apropos term for a man who in the course of the past three years has run in half marathons, full marathons and ultra -marathon events along the Great Wall of China, Norway, Shanghai, Monschau in Germany and Belgium, Singapore, Hong Kong and Morocco.

As a member of a serious group of runners callings themselves [Accrorun] he has helped raise Euro 30,000 that has funded an outdoor playground from children suffering from cancer; Euro 10,000 to buy electric bicycles used in physical therapy for polyarthritis victims and, most recently, helped educate 171 schoolchildren at the Seraya Barat Primary School in Karangasem, East Bali.

Jerome is now focused on raising a total of US$20,000 to provide the Seraya Barat Primary School with a whole range of ongoing improvements.

After completing a Herculean 100-kilometer ultra-marathon run in November 2011, Jerome raised US$3,400. This allowed him to begin his exciting plans for the schoo in Balil by officially reopening the library for the primary school at Seraya Barat on January 9, 2012. Those funds purchased 450 books, new shelving, 3 new windows, seating and a modest opening celebration for the 170 children who will use the new library.

Running for Someone Else’s Life

On March 9-10, 2012, Jerome will run from Antasari to Gilmanuk – a distance of 91 kilometers, joining a part of Scott Thompson’s epic 25-day charity run of 1,250 kilometer from Bali to Jakarta in support of two Indonesian charities.

Details of this race and its goal can be found at [www.runningbalitojakarta.com

BII Maybank Bali Marathon

Jerome will also be running closer to home when he joins the full-marathon 42-kilometer distance [BII Maybank Bali Marathon]  taking place in Bali on Sunday, April 22, 2012. The first full-marathon event held in Indonesia in more than 20 years, more than 2,500 athletes are expected to join Jerome in an event that offers a full-marathon (42 km), half-marathon (21 km) and a 10 km fun run.

Limiting his charity runs to one event per year, Jerome Colson’s next major event will be a 160-kilometer ultra-marathon, which will take place in late August 2012 in the Pyrenees.
