SDG 6K Fun Walk & Run 2022

ORANJESTAD - Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) “Wings of Hope” (WoH) organized the first 6K Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Awareness Fun Walk & Run on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

6K Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Awareness Fun Walk & Run.A total of 211 participants joined the SDG Fun Walk & Run to raise funds for Micky’s Foundation and Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso and to create awareness of the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations. AAA employees chose two foundations via e-poll.

Micky’s Foundation provides children with physical and/ or mental limitations with free, specialized, and intensive therapy sessions at their families' homes. It organizes 3-month-projects back-to-back four times a year, so continuity of therapy is also guaranteed. They give therapy exercises with the assistance of at least one parent, so they can learn to give it to their child at home.

The children's home Casa Cuna is a 7x24 facility for children aged 0 to 8 years who (temporarily) can no longer live at home, for example because of neglect, sexual abuse or physical abuse. Moreover, they also provide guidance to the parents/foster parents of these children.  

6K Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Awareness Fun Walk & Run.At the finish line of the SDG Fun Walk & Run, the participants enjoyed fresh refreshments, including Wings of Hope branded coconuts, and fruits, and received a small token of appreciation.

In the presence of all participants, the AAA Wings of Hope team presented a donation of AWG 5,000.00 to both foundations. To conclude the event, WoH 29 raffled prizes among the participants, including electronics, sporting goods vouchers, dinner vouchers, and airfare vouchers.

WoH would like to thank all volunteers, individuals, organizations, and other service groups who participated in the SDG 6K Fun Walk & Run to make this a successful one.

WoH looks forward to continuing to contribute to projects that create a better future for the Aruban Community, especially the children.
