It was a lovely morning on 6 November 2016 as associates of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort and guests gathered for a Beach Body Combat activity to promote W.A.S.H – Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, in aid of the 2016 UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge.
The fun-filled event offered participants a 60-minute Body Combat session by certified instructors.
Guests were also treated to healthy refreshments after the work out and bring home a recyclable drinking bottle. There were also special door prizes from hotel stays to F&B vouchers. A small donation of IDR 150,000 per person will go a long way for these children, plus you get to stay fit!
“I am proud to share that with collaborative effort from each and every associate, business partner, media friends and vendors, we managed to sell over 1,500 tickets and raised over USD17,000 for 2016. This year’s Beach Body Combat saw over 600 participants, sweating it out early in the morning – all for a good cause. We hope that with this contribution, we are able to make a difference to the lives of the most disadvantaged and excluded children,” says Dario Orsini, General Manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort.
