Our Race Cause
With the proceeds and donations from the 2018 race, the Royal Resorts Foundation will help build and equip a kitchen at the Don Bosco Youth Center. This Ciudad de la Alegria community center gives vulnerable teenagers in marginalized neighborhoods on the outskirts of Cancun hope for the future.
The Don Bosco Center lends a helping hand to young people who have dropped out of school due to poverty, gang membership, domestic violence and other factors. They continue their studies and learn English and computer skills. Seminars and workshops on health and nutrition, values and self-esteem also give them a boost of confidence and there are sporting and cultural activities too.
