Marriott International’s ‘Run to Give’ charity run took place in 206 hotels across Asia Pacific. The annual Run brings hotel associates together to organise runs in different cities to support local charities. This year three hotels – W Goa, Le Meridien Goa, Calangute and Goa Marriott Resort and Spa participated in the run. It was a 5 kilometre run where participants ran across the banks of Mandovi River. This year there were over 350 participants including associates and guests from the three hotels, partners, running enthusiasts, partners and sponsors who helped raise `225,000. The proceeds of the run will go to Rising Star Outreach, a home for the less fortunate whose families suffer from leprosy.
