Goa Hotel Hosts Green Walkathon

Goa Marriott Resort & Spa Celebrates Environmental Awareness Month

GOA, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- The Green Walkathon organized by the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa on 26th April 2014 was an exciting event! Planned as a part of their Environmental Awareness Month celebrations during the month of April, the North Goa hotel's aim was to raise awareness towards green causes and involve the community in this endeavor.

The walkathon kicked off at 5.00 pm at the hotel lobby and covered a stretch of the city roads. It was an uplifting sight to watch the participants, adults and children, some walking; others running, enthusiastically traverse the route before returning back to the Goa beach hotels hotel where there were refreshments. As giveaways, cloth bags were gifted to everybody as green mementos of the event.

After a great response in 2011, the Green Walkathon has now been made an annual event at this Panjim hotel. Said GM of the property Ranju Alex, "This Green Walkathon is an annual in the month of April, celebrated by Marriott globally as Environmental Awareness Month. It is heartwarming for us to have our guests, health club members, corporate customers and travel trade colleagues joining us in this initiative to show our commitment to the environment."

Each year in April, Marriott celebrates "Environmental Awareness Month" to communicate the company's commitment to environmentally responsible operations, raise awareness of environmental issues, and involve associates in green activities. Activities include beach or neighborhood cleanups, tree plantation drives, pollution control checkups, blood donation camps, environmental themed competitions like Best Out Of Waste, movie or documentary screenings for associates and CSR activities like involvement with NGOs for environmental resource conservations etc.
