As part of Fairmont’s commitment to making a difference in communities where colleagues live and work, Fairmont Nile City helped to raise awareness on childhood cancer by supporting 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital’s 6th cycling marathon in collaboration with the Arab League and Tahiya Misr institute.
Hundreds of cyclists took part in the 8KM marathon from Tahrir square to the hospital’s premise among which were Fairmont Nile City team members who were welcomed at the finish line by the rest of the team including Frank Naboulsi, Regional Vice President & General Manager, Fairmont Nile City who commented “we are here at 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital today to educate communities about what they can do to help children fighting for their lives. We all should be very much appreciative of the efforts put forth by the doctors and the entire staff of this hospital, a job well done. We are hoping for 100% survival rate and that all these children grow old free of any illnesses. ”
In a day of celebration for those who beat cancer and a day of remembrance for the lives lost, all generated funds will go to research lending support to the patients affected by these illnesses.
