In February, associates from the Le Meridien Suvarnabhumi, Bangkok Golf Resort & Spa in Bangplee Samut Prakan, Thailand, partnered with Sanfrecce Hiroshima F.C., a professional soccer team based in Hiroshima, Japan, to organize a soccer clinic for local children (aged 10 – 14) to help encourage them to spend their free time participating in healthy activities.
It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not only did the children have the opportunity to receive professional coaching from the Sanfrecce Hiroshima coaches, they also received gifts and a Le Meridien/Sanfrecce Hiroshima training kit as well as their favorite snacks, including pizza, fried chicken, and ice cream.
After the event, the children took pictures with the stars of the club, including Thai legend and national team top scorer Teerasil Dangda.
What a great way to invest in the vitality of the children from the local community, while inspiring the community itself to stay active and focus on their wellbeing.
This is a great example of how associates across Marriott International work together to help Nurture Our World, an integral part of Marriott’s sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction.
