Road to Awareness[edit]

Road to Awareness (R2A) is the associate fundraising campaign of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, and has been making a positive difference to the lives of thousands of children since the launch in 2008. Since then, employees throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East have raised over $5 million for children in need through this campaign. In 2015, Starwood Hotels in the United Arab Emirates began supporting the Al Jalila Foundation with their R2A funds and are collecting donations for the 'Omniyat Dania' project, which invests the funds into medical treatment and research of childhood cancer in the UAE.
