India, December 7, 2022 – Marriott International returns with the 8th edition of the flagship charity run – Run to Give with a more inclusive and reformed avatar as Road to Give 2022, which encourages participants from across its South Asia portfolio of hotels to embrace all forms of movement beyond just running vis. walking, cycling, swimming and others.
This annual charity run is an integral part of the Marriott South Asia calendar and is a testament to the company’s commitment to cultivate a people-first environment that promotes the associates’ well-being and drives its people to care for the communities where they do business. This year, Road to Give 2022 had committed to lend support across 143 hotels from Marriott International hotels and resorts in South Asia who will come together to raise funds to support RISING STAR OUTREACH OF INDIA- (https://risingstaroutreach.org/), a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals and
Their families to rise above the stigma associated with leprosy and to live healthy, productive lives through quality education, medical care, and community development. This weeklong event will take place on 4th December 2022.
Road to Give 2022 is essentially a step towards creating a space for inclusion in our bid towards making tangible a contribution towards the upliftment of the communities around us. The annual run is an opportunity for Marriott International associates, along with family and guests to come together and make a move, this year in all possible ways, in the direction of a more diverse and accommodative future which holds space for individuals from across the spectrum. The idea is to make the event larger and cohesive each year by taking participants closer to our TakeCare philosophies by adding new facets and elements to the annual run” said Ranju Alex – Area Vice President, South Asia, Marriott International.
With an aim to incorporate participation from across the country, the run is open to Marriott associates, partners as well as families, friends and guests who can join the event, lend support, take some time to reflect, care for their bodies and minds and most importantly to be part of a larger, purposeful initiative that aims at us helping build a more cohesive and responsible society. In Indore, the cleanest city in India, Marriott Indore, Sheraton Grand Place Indore, and Fairfield By Marriott Indore all participated in this incredible event. The event was a huge success with 2.5 kilometres of running area allotted to the event. Individuals began their journey at 7:00 AM and returned to a delicious and refreshing breakfast.
