Commemorating World Running Day, The Westin Surabaya Holds Westin Vertical Run 2022
Holiday Ayo - Joined in 30 Marriott International Westin Hotels & Resorts brands, holding activation and running events with guests and communities in each region in commemoration of World Running Day which falls in June.
The Westin Surabaya held a charity Vertical Run which took a route around the elite Pakuwon Indah housing estate and uphill to the parking area of Pakuwon Mall Surabaya.
This global movement is included in the activation of RunWESTIN, an initiative program from the hotel that aims to invite guests to maintain their fitness while traveling by running with RunWESTIN Concierge.
"Actually, Vertical Runs have been held a lot, but they are still relatively rare, especially in Surabaya. We are bringing it back this time, with an outdoor route around the Pakuwon Indah area, which is combined with a route up the Pakuwon Mall parking area, from the ground floor to the finish area in P13," said Firman Rusindriansyah as Complex Director of Marketing and Communication of The Westin Surabaya and Four Points by Sheraton Surabaya as reported by Suara.com.
This event will also have the concept of a charity fun run so that each participant can join by donating their running apparel, such as a t-shirt or running shoe, or a donation of IDR 50,000 which will be donated to the Alang-Alang Studio Surabaya.
Sanggar Alang-Alang is an alternative school or out-of-school education dedicated to underprivileged, orphaned and neglected children in Surabaya. The school, which was built on April 16, 1999, was founded independently by Didit Hape.
"We from the Alang-Alang Studio feel really grateful for the appreciation and support from The Westin Surabaya hotel for our studio. This is for the children. I wish everyone success and move forward," said Nurul, one of the Alang-Alang Studio administrators when giving welcome.
Meanwhile, the total donations collected were IDR 13.4 million in cash and more than 50 items of clothing and sports shoes. This event was attended by 250 runners and enlivened by Body Workout with F45 Training Citraland Surabaya, Live DJ and Doorprize with prizes for staying at Marriott International hotels in Indonesia.
