2019 Royal Resorts Foundation Race Cause
The 2019 Royal Resorts Foundation Race cause is education and our goal is to raise $435,000 pesos for a program that helps send low-income students to university. This is the equivalent of 12 scholarships.
Our 2019 race partner, Fundacion Lomas seeks to make a college education in Mexico accessible for all and address the shortfall in Quintana Roo, where a 2014-15 study indicated that more than 70 percent of 18 to 23 year olds had not gone to university.
Education is essential for development and combating poverty and by helping address the educational imbalance with college grants, Fundacion Lomas and the Royal Resorts Foundation will be giving opportunities and the hope of a better future to young people.
To date, Fundacion Lomas has given 247 scholarships and its goal is to grant 35 scholarships a year to students at senior high, technical college and university level. It also has 15 grants available for college students who need to do work experience as part of their degree. Ten additional scholarships are part of the Cero Rezago Educativo (No child left behind) program to enable students to complete primary and secondary studies so that they can continue to middle and higher learning.
