Riding For a Cause

Prem's Royal Enfield webIt’s always great to see hospitality giants give back to the community and when you add a biking trip to that, it makes for a great adventure.

Prem Joseph, the Director of Sales and Marketing, Hyderabad Marriott Hotel & Convention Centre & Courtyard by Marriott, Hyderabad will be setting off on an adventure with his Royal Enfield motorcycle as his trusted companion to all operating Marriott hotels in the country between December 8th – 20th, 2013. Prem will be collecting gift-able stay vouchers from the hotels he visits and 50% of the vouchers will be auctioned off at the Madras Bulls Motorcycling Clubs biker festival on the 18-19 January 2014 in Madras. The proceeds of which will go towards Rising Star Outreach which is also known as Marriott Home. Marriott Home is an initiative by Marriott Hotels to raise funds for children whose parents are affected by leprosy. Their mission is to help the Leprosy colonies become thriving, self-sufficient communities by undertaking economic rehabilitation through micro-grants; providing medical care through mobile medical clinics and educating their children.

Prem Joseph will journey across Chandigarh, Delhi, Jaipur, Bhopal, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Bangalore, Cochin, Chennai and finally Hyderabad to create awareness and raise funds for Marriott Home. We were able to get a few words from Prem while he was packing, he says, “Riding has always been my passion and it’s been two years since I have been working with the Marriott group of Hotels. This ride was the perfect marriage of my passion to ride with the opportunity to visit all our hotels and most importantly to support the Marriott Home. Members from BOBMC (Brotherhood of Bulleteers Motorcycling Consortium) across the country will be riding to Rider Mania (18th and 19th January 2014) in Chennai, and will be supporting this cause. In short, this journey is a unique partnership between the Marriott Hotels India, BOBMC and the Marriott Home all stitched together on a 6,000 kilometre ride.”
