Hard Rock Hotel Bali’s Annual Rock ‘N’ Run Helps Those In Need
Hard Rock Hotel Bali once again conducted the annual Rock ‘n Run – The 11th Chapter on 27 November 2011. A sea of Hard Rock T-Shirt runners sponsored by Reebok flocked to the Kuta Beach on bright shiny Sunday to join the fun run event.
Perfect weather greeted more than 550 runners as they gathered together to embark on this annual charity event and to “Run for someone else’s life”. At 6.30am, the 5K charity run was officially started by Camat Kuta, accompanied by Mr. Brad Calder, Executive Assistant Manager of Hard Rock Hotel Bali. After a competitive run the winners rounded the bend into Jalan Pantai to cross the finish line in front of Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
The proceeds of this year’s charity event will again be donated to help children in need of cleft lip and palate operations, to bring a smile to unfortunate children afflicted with this facial disfigurement. The funds will be distributed to assist Rumah Senyum “Smile House” through Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak.
“One hundred percent of proceeds from our event are donated to the Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak and one hundred percent of the proceeds go to help children in Bali with the facial disfigurement operation. This year, due to an increase in both sponsorships and participants, I am proud to announce that the Rock N Run – The 11th Chapter is able to make a record donation of Rp. 150.000.000.” said Brad Calder.
The President of Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak, Mr. Patrick Van Kampen added “It’s fantastic being here today, and seeing so many people running and walking together to help children in Bali is just amazing”.
