Run to Give Back


On October 16, the Run to Give Hotel Charity Run took place in Shenzhen with 19 participating hotels from Shenzhen, Huizhou, Dongguan and Heyuan. A total of 50,043 RMB was raised during the event. Initiated in 2014 by the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific as an individual hotel charity run, this inaugural event saw an overwhelming response of over 20,000 runners take part in 92 locations across Asia Pacific; raising a total amount of close to USD$ 228,000. In 2015, the run took on the official event name “Run to Give”—chosen among close to 500 submission entries by Starwood Asia Pacific associates—which best represented the spirit of the charity event.
