Unit 27 Gibbon Rehabilitation Project Fund Raiser

Unit 27 Gibbon Rehabilitation Project Fund Raiser

Over 10,000 Baht going to needy Gibbons

Very happy to announce that the Unit 27 Gibbon Rehabilitation competition participants raised over 10,000 THB in a single morning of sweat, grunts and tears! We split the participants into four teams and pitched them against one another in a series of workouts designed to separate the men & women, from the boys & girls, participants paid a small entry fee and got to work tackling calorie destroying workout after calorie destroying workout, it was a lot of fun with a higher purpose.

Pictured above is the team that took out the coveted title, and metaphorical trophy, they worked harder and sweated just a little more, racking up more repetitions and sets than any of the other groups. Well done guys and gals!

Gibbons, apes known for their speed and distinctive singing, were wiped out through poaching by 1980s on Thailand’s popular Phuket island. Now they are making a comeback through WARF’s Gibbon Rehabilitation Project.

Big thanks to every single person who participated, massive shout out to the instructors that gave up their time to make sure the event ran smoothly!

Unit-27, Phuket, Thailand - Songkran Final Photo

Songkran Workout!

Songkran is something that those of us who have been blessed enough to call Thailand home for a long duration of time know what to expect every year. However, Unit-27 is so blessed to show those who are new to Thailand every year what it's all about, and that's all about having fun, and really throwing yourself into the culture of Thailand. It's Thailands most famous festival, an incredibly important event on the buddhist calendar and marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year! Unit-27 is renowned for throwing a good competition, but this year, we really out did ourselves, with 4 incredibly (probably oversized) "floaties", [...]
