Mission accomplished: Royal Resorts Foundation builds a home for Maclovio

We have some wonderful news to share with you. Don Maclovio Tec, his wife Carmen and son Reyes, our 2017 Royal Resorts Foundation Race beneficiaries are now living in their renovated home.

Construction has been completed and Don Maclovio’s home is now larger, safer, equipped to meet the family’s accessibility needs and much more comfortable. They have an additional bedroom, a bathroom and toilet and a proper kitchen with storage.

Once again, a big thank you to all our 2017 Royal Resorts Foundation Race competitors, volunteers and sponsors. Your support made it possible for us to improve the quality of life for Maclovio and his family.

Third Royal Resorts Foundation Race scheduled for February 18, 2018
Mark your calendars for the Third Royal Resorts Foundation Race in 2018. We now have a race date for next year’s race, Sunday, February 18 (week 7). We hope that you will sign up for the race or for the walk and join us in supporting another worthy community cause.

The cause selected for the 2018 race is to build a community kitchen at the Don Bosco Youth Center.

Don Bosco Youth Center is a Ciudad de la Alegria project that helps young people in marginalized neighborhoods on the outskirts of Cancun who are at risk due to poverty, domestic violence, gangs, and other factors. Many have dropped out of school and all too easily can be swept into a life of crime or addiction to drugs or alcohol.

The Don Bosco Center gives these vulnerable teenagers a chance for the future. Education is one of the keys to breaking out of the circle of poverty and violence and at the center they have the change to catch up with their classes, learn English and computer skills, take workshops and participate in sporting and cultural activities organized by volunteers.

A study by the TecMilenio University revealed high levels of malnourishment in the young people attending the Don Bosco Youth Center. Poor diet causes health problems, low concentration levels and poor academic performance. The addition of a kitchen at the center to provide nutritious meals would help these teenagers as they take steps towards a better life.

With your participation in the 2018 race, the Royal Resorts Foundation will donate money to build and equip the kitchen.
