The campaign was initiated in 2008 when several senior associates at Former Starwood decided to take on a 3-day cycling challenge in the French Alps and Pyrenees to support UNICEF. In the following years, associates have continued to raise funds, and the cycle challenge has been the anchor of the campaign. Connect on @marriott_r2a.
