So what makes Marriott Hotel one of the successful hotel chain worldwide? It was surprisingly simple — they just #takecare.

We can just take it as simple lip service but hearing the words from their top management of Cebu City Marriott Hotel, who take some time off to be in their Run to Give fun run press conference, meant that they really do mean it.

Run to Give 2017 is the very first fun run organized by Cebu City Marriott Hotel. It would be fun to be part of this somewhat historical running event in Cebu.

So what does #takecare really mean, and what is Run to Give 2017 about? Here are some short video clips from different leaders of Cebu City Marriott Hotel Cebu:
