Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) “Wings of Hope” (WoH) is organizing a 6K Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Awareness Fun Walk & Run-on Saturday September 3, 2022.
As part of WoH’s SDG Environment/Airport Community Goal, WoH is organizing a SDG Fun Walk & Run in order to raise funds for two foundations and create awareness on the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by United Nations. The two foundations that were chosen by AAA employees via a poll are Micky’s Foundation and Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso.
Micky’s Foundation provides children with physical and/or mental limitations with free, specialized, and intensive therapy session in the homes of families. Micky’s Foundation organizes 3-months projects back-to-back four times a year, so continuity of therapy is also guaranteed. Each therapy is always given with the assistance of at least one parent, so they can learn to give therapy exercises to their child at home.
Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso is a children’s home providing children who (temporarily) can no longer live at their home because of for example neglect, sexual abuse or physical abuse. Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso also provides guidance to the parents/foster parents of these children.
The SDG 6K Fun Walk & Run will take place on Saturday September 3, 2022, starting at 6AM. The route will be from the Airport uncovered Parking Lot to Mahuma roundabout to Simeon Antonio passing by Bopel to Hyatt Place and back to the Airport uncovered Parking lot. All participants are requested to be present at the starting point, the Airport uncovered Parking lot at 5:30AM. All proceeds will go towards the two foundations. As a bonus, all participants present will automatically be participating in the raffle prizes which consists of 35+ total prizes including airfare tickets, electronic gadgets, apparel and electronic shop certificates, dinner vouchers and much more.
WoH encourages individuals, organizations, and other service groups to participate in the SDG 6K Fun Walk & Run to not only raise awareness on the importance of the SDGs but also on the importance of everyone’s involvement in projects that create a better future for the Aruban Community, especially the children.
