In November 2015, The Preluna Hotel & Spa managment team, together with Dr & Mrs White who are esteemed, repeat guests of the Preluna Hotel came up with the idea of organising a Fundraising event.
What better way is there to help an organisation by doing something beneficial to one's health, and something sociable and fun at the same time.
This is were the idea of the Walkathon came up.
Before the big day arrived, which was the 17th January 2016, we as a team, had certain duties to handle in order to make this Walkathon a success, not only for us, but we really wanted to be of a great help to the organisation we chose, which was Arka Foundation.
Fondazzjoni Arka is a voluntary, non profit making organisation, that promotes the welfare of people with special needs, and that of their families. Their philisophy is based on the individual's fundemental right to dignity, respect and confidentiality.
On the big day, a good number of locals, in-house guests got together for the 7KM walk, alond the gorgeous coast of Sliema. Although the winds were strong, reaching up to a force 5/6 we still were ademant of our goal, for such a good cause.
The wonderful sum of 1000EURO was collected in total, and for this we wouldl ike to thank: our CEO (Mr Preca), Dr & Mrs White, the management, team and guests at The Preluna Hotel, Mr C Mansueto & Fr Micael from Arka Foundation, and to all of those who joined us for the walk, and those who simply gave us a donation.
The sum was given to Fondazzjoni Arka on the 7th of March 2016 during their Marathon fundraising event, which was a 12 hour marathon streamed on local TV.
