Virtual Run To Give 2020

In partnership with Bali Children Foundation, Run to Give is an annual Marriott Asia Pacific charity run event under the company’s TakeCare movement. This year, fifty-five (55) hotels from Marriott International hotels and resorts in Indonesia will come together to raise money for an Indonesia-wide associates relief fund, which will be dedicated to support Marriott associates who have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic. What makes it even more special is, this event will be Marriott Indonesia’s first ever virtual charity run, in line with the ‘new normal’, while adhering to safe-distancing measures, to safeguard the wellbeing of guests, associates and participants.

“With so many big races cancelled across the country due to coronavirus, I believe virtual races like the one we’re creating is a big part of the future of running. It’s a fun, safe way for runners and walkers all over Indonesia and the world to connect. We look forward to seeing more participation in order to make this year’s Virtual Run for Charity an even bigger success than previous years,” said Marie Browne, General Manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort and Chairwoman for this charity event.
