The Northern Spain Marriott Business Council recently created 5 teams with 91 volunteers from different hotels around Spain to participate in the Magic Line, Barcelona, a solidarity walk where teams must first complete awareness-raising actions and collect funds on behalf of a chosen economic challenge before they can participate.
Through the achievement of the business council’s economic challenge – along with the economic challenges completed by all of the participating teams across Spain – hundreds of solidarity actions were organized through the territory with all donations being provided to the Sant Joan de Deu Foundation.
Through the completion of their economic challenge, the Northern Spain Business Council raised almost 5000 EUR (6000 USD) for the foundation.
The Sant Joan de Deu Foundation works jointly with hospitals and other Sant Joan de Déu health centers to expand scientific knowledge and to improve the care given to people who suffer health problems.
This is an 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.
