Marriott’s Virtual Run Helps the Filipino Children
Marriott Worldwide Business Councils (MWBC) the Philippines holds yet another Run To Give, and for the second time around, virtually. This year, all Marriott properties in the Philippines – Clark Marriott, Manila Marriott, Sheraton Manila, Sheraton Manila Bay, Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo, and two new properties that are soon to open—Sheraton Cebu Mactan and Four Points by Sheraton Puerto Princesa Palawan – virtually come together to run with a bold attempt to generate one million pesos for the Marriott Associate Welfare Fund and its partner beneficiary, the Save The Children Philippines. Last year, P400,000 was raised to support Save the Children Philippines and help grant access for children to quality education, improve their health, and protect their rights.
Run To Give (RTG) is a Marriott International-initiated charity run that is simultaneously conducted in the Asia Pacific as part of its Take Care programs. While it may be true that the pandemic has been holding the world captive from its routine, like marathons and meets having been canceled indefinitely; the MWBC Philippines continues to pursue ways to extend help in the best ways it can, thus, the Virtual RTG.
Anyone interested may sign up to complete a total mileage and select among 100 km, 200 km, or 300 km. Participate whenever, wherever, and however you want because it is not only limited to running. You can hike, bike, or even swim at your own pace and at your most convenient time and place. The world is your race track. Register and help reach the 40,040km goal in 40 days. This virtual run gives you the flexibility and freedom to enjoy the race and help the community at the same time. Record your progress by connecting to the Strava app. The Virtual RTG is until December 3. Runners may register throughwww.marriottvirtualruntogiveph.raisely.com. Registration starts at P500. An e-certificate of completion will be received at the end of each challenge. A souvenir shirt and finisher’s medal may also be availed with an add-on cost.
You would like to help but no time to run? You may choose to either donate directly to MWBC Philippines’ chosen beneficiaries or sponsor a participant and take an exclusive part in its charity initiative.
