Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club

In preparation for the Annual Kauai Marathon, associates 
joined the Poipu Beach Resort Association and organizations 
on the south shore to beautify the gateway to Poipu. 
Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club also donated food and 
refreshments for the volunteers.

The Annual Kauai Marathon attracts visitors from all over 
the world. Associates volunteered at the most picturesque 
aid station boasting a panoramic ocean view of the south 
shore two miles before the finish line. Participants in the half 
and full marathon ranging in age from 9 to 85 were greeted 
with smiles, cheers and ice cold Kauai water. On marathon 
day, volunteers provided 8,000 pounds of ice and 1,600 
gallons of water.

Marriott’s Manor Club

To help raise awareness and proceeds to the Angels of 
Mercy Medical Clinic, associates at Marriott’s Manor Club 
participated in the Run the D.O.G. This 5k race helped 
provide free, compassionate and quality health care to 
the uninsured residents of the greater Williamsburg area, 
Charles City and New Kent counties. One of our very own, 
Omar Khadrane, won second place in his age group. 

Moreover, the team held a pumpkin decorating contest in 
October to raise awareness of breast cancer. Owners and 
guests were encouraged to vote for their favorite pumpkin 
by placing a donation in the cup. All proceeds were 
donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
