Exclusive Traveler Club was present, as an official sponsor, at the 2020 Catalonia 5K run, which Catolonia Hotels & Resorts organizes each year to support the Amigos Contra el Cáncer Infantil Foundation (Friends Against Childhood Cancer Foundation).
At the Catalonia Santo Domingo Hotel, the hotel chain gave the money raised (RD$1,250,000, about US$21,580) to this non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life of children with this disease.
As per tradition, Catalonia held a cocktail party to announce the donation that it makes to the foundation each year. The money that is donated is obtained thanks to the support of all the runners and the wonderful sponsors of the run.
The run was held in November at Pearl Beach Club, located in Punta Cana. During the event, the chain’s managers expressed that they were proud to be able to share another donation from this 5k run, an event where families could enjoy themselves and contribute to a noble cause.
This initiative, launched for the first time in 2016, is an important milestone for the entire Catalonia family and all its employees. Each year more sponsors and participants join the run. In 2020 alone, Catalonia had the support of 71 sponsors and 1,369 runners.
Thanks to these types of events, the Amigos Contra el Cáncer Infantil Foundation will be able to keep fighting to fulfill its mission of saving lives with an act of kindness. This act of kindness is a message of hope, love, humility, and health for all children who currently have a disease like cancer.
We reached our goal and we aim to continue the fight together for many more years!
