Aruba Marriott Contributes to the ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ Program

A special dog walk event.

Aruba Marriott recently organized a dog walk for its associates and their families, in an effort to promote associate wellbeing, quality time with their families and to raise funds for the ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ program.

A total of 110 people and 30 dogs of different breeds gathered in the parking lot of the Grand Ballroom to enjoy a walk with their furry companions to Malmok, enjoying the island’s beautiful scenery and sunset along the way. Additionally, the Aruba Marriott had t-shirts printed for purchase as well as dog bandanas and dog treats, from which all the funds generated, were donated to ‘Stimami Sterilisami’. At the end of the walk, a number of prizes were raffled amongst the dogs and participants as well as healthy snacks were provided.

The ‘Stimami Sterilisami’ movement aims to reduce the amount of stray dogs and cats on the island by sponsoring the costs of spaying and neutering and by raising awareness within the community on the importance of providing proper care for pets. Additionally, dog owners can register for a special price for spaying and neutering through this program.

Aruba Marriott organized this dog walk event as part of Marriott International’s efforts to promote wellbeing and happiness among associates as well as giving back to the community through the Marriott Take Care Program, which is an initiative that supports Marriott International’s Putting People First culture. This includes physical, emotional, career and financial wellbeing. Through the Take Care Wellbeing Program, Marriott helps their associates focus on their health and the importance of taking care of themselves and their community just as they take care of their guests.
