Associates of Marriott International take on enormous challenges to benefit causes close to their hearts. The Road to Awareness cycle challenge is part of an ongoing series of key events initiated by Marriott International to raise funds for charities across the Middle East and Africa, with a goal of one million dollars by November. R2A cyclists, a team comprised of 30 associates from all over the Middle East and Africa, completed their challenge, pedaling just under 600 kilometers (approximately 372 miles) across Western Cape in South Africa.
Beginning at the Westin Cape Town, cyclists spent three days in the saddle, supported by a full team consisting of 21 members including a safety and traffic officer, marshals on motorbikes, mechanics, and support vehicles, as well as a team of Marriott associates to encourage, assist, and guide the riders.
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.
