For over two decades and through a variety of initiatives ranging from golf tournament fundraisers to internship opportunities, Grand Pacific Resorts has helped support Christel House, a charitable organization dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty around the world.
This past fall, our Associates walked, jogged, biked, and exercised as they logged fundraiser miles in the Christel House Walk-A-Thon to help raise awareness for this cause. Many organized into teams, held friendly competitions, and set fundraising goals.
“Walking is the best medicine for me. I’ve found that if we want to walk fast, we walk alone, but if we want to walk far, we need to walk together. By doing so, we can accomplish anything while building a culture of inclusion and trust,” said Abby Escalante, Grand Pacific Resorts Associate and Walk-A-Thon participant.
As a result of their efforts, our Associates logged a total of 1,905 miles and collectively raised $40,873! This amount is enough to provide 15 students from Christel House with a full year of education essentials like books, uniforms, school supplies, lunches, transportation, healthcare, college and career counseling, and parent programs.
“I’m so proud of our Associates who remain committed to the causes that we have been passionate about for years,” said Grand Pacific Resorts Co-President, David Brown. “It’s exciting watching them come together to work for the common good, and we look forward to continue supporting such a worthy organization in any way we can.”
