There’s still time to sign up for the Second Royal Resorts Foundation Race on February 19, 2017 and support a worthy local cause, building a home for a family that desperately needs help. This time, the Royal Resorts Foundation has partnered with Pro Niños Excepcionales A.C., a Cancun NGO for children with physical, neurological and mental challenges. We will be helping Maclovio Tun, a man who has devoted his life to caring for sick children.
At 74 years old, Maclovio is the sole breadwinner for his family, wife Carmen who is paralyzed and their son Reyes who has severe cerebral palsy. Their derelict house has a leaking roof, no door and no sanitation facilities and is unfit for them to live in. Our goal is to renovate and extend it, adding a bathroom, bedroom, ramps and other aids for easy access, making it a safe, healthy and comfortable space for them.
Sign up for the Second Royal Resorts Foundation Race and help renovate Maclovio’s home. Take part in the 10, five or three-kilometer race or a three-kilometer walk, there’s a Fun Run for children too.
Invite your friends and family to take part too! The closing date for registration is February 15.
The race takes place on February 19 at 7 a.m. Starting point: Captain’s Cove Restaurant to Westin Regina and back again.
Race Fee is $250 pesos per adult and $150 pesos per child and includes a souvenir t-shirt and finalist’s medal, race number, chip, water and an isotonic drink at the finish line
