Many birthdays are celebrated with cake, ice cream, and maybe even a piñata. This year, Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya, celebrated with a charity run, which raised over US $3,900 for a nearby house for children awaiting chemotherapy treatment.
In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya hosted its second Race and Care fun-run to benefit a local foundation. The hotel invited guests and colleagues to run and walk along a 2.5 kilometer (about 1.5 mile) track surrounding the hotel, encouraging a healthier birthday celebration. To add to the fun, runners ran with balloons on their wrists, flooding the main road with thousands of green balloons. Almost 800 runners participated in the race, almost doubling the number of runners in the previous year’s race!
Congratulations, Shangri-La Surabaya, on the successful race and for 20 years of hospitality from the heart! We wish you many more!
