2014-04-01 08:07:18 - A team of volunteers from the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai was among the entrants for the Walkathon held in Safa Park, Dubai, on March 22nd in aid of the 9th annual World Down Syndrome Day.
Aimed at raising awareness of the genetic disorder, the walkathon attracted more 1,500 participants and was a festive family occasion with face painting, balloons, free ice cream and water among the features of the afternoon.
According to General Manager of the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai, Scott Butcher, the walkathon is just one of the CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiatives at the hotel: “We are delighted our staff gave up their free time to help those less fortunate, the children and young people with Down Syndrome. As well as corporate CSR initiatives which are fully supported by our employees, they are also engaging on an individual level with the community – something we are pleased to encourage.”
