Rezidor Hotel Group team runs 20km of Brussels and collects EUR 11,500 for World Childhood Foundation
A group of seven executives and 42 further team members of the Rezidor Hotel Group ran the 20km of Brussels and collected a EUR 11,500 donation for World Childhood Foundation through their joint action. The 20km of Brussels race took place yesterday morning and was attended by 37,000 runners – among them Prince Philippe of Belgium.
“I am very proud of our runners and our great team spirit. This event has united our 20km participants around “Think Together”, one of the three pillars of our group-wide and award-winning Responsible Business Programme. With the help of our sponsors we were also able to raise a fantastic donation for the most vulnerable children in the world – a big thank you to all our supporters!” said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor and one of the leading runners.
The runners from Rezidor’s Brussels-based head office and from Radisson Blu and Park Inn hotels in Belgium and Europe braved the chilly weather and gave their all to finish the 20 kilometres course through the centre of Brussels.
The stand of Radisson Blu Hotels & Resorts was the focal point of runners and spectators before and after the event. 20km participants could enjoy a short sport massage, healthy snacks & drinks, and visitors were invited to purchase raffle tickets to win the top prize: A stay for two at the Radisson Blu Balmoral Hotel Spa – including a massage and access to the wellness centre.
The World Childhood Foundation is Carlson Rezidor’s global corporate charity partner. The foundation was founded by Queen Silvia of Sweden to raise awareness of and to lend aide to sexually abused or trafficked women and children across the world (www.childhood.org).
