September 7, 2022

ORANJESTAD - Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) “Wings of Hope” (WoH) organized the first 6K Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Awareness Fun Walk & Run-on Saturday September 3, 2022.

A total of 211 participants joined the SDG Fun Walk & Run in order to raise funds for Micky’s Foundation and Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso and to create awareness on the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by United Nations. The two foundations were chosen by AAA employees via e poll.

Micky’s Foundation provides children with physical and/or mental limitations with free, specialized, and intensive therapy sessions at the homes of families. Micky’s Foundation organizes 3-month-projects back-to-back four times a year, so continuity of therapy is also guaranteed. Each therapy is always given with the assistance of at least one parent, so they can learn to give therapy exercises to their child at home.

Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso is a children’s home providing children who (temporarily) can no longer live at their home because of for example neglect, sexual abuse or physical abuse. Stichting Casa Cuna Progreso also provides guidance to the parents/foster parents of these children.

At the finish line of the SDG Fun Walk & Run, the participants were able to enjoy fresh refreshments including Wings of Hope branded coconuts, fruits and received a small token of appreciation. In the presence of all participants, AAA Wings of Hope team proudly presented a donation of AWG 5,000.00 to both foundations. To conclude the event, a total of 29 prizes were raffled among the participants and included electronics, sporting good vouchers, dinner vouchers and airfare vouchers.

WoH would like to thank all volunteers, individuals, organizations, and other service groups who participated in the SDG 6K Fun Walk & Run to make this a successful one. WoH looks forward to continuing to contribute to projects that create a better future for the Aruban Community, especially the children.
