The Langham Hotels & Resorts Pledge To Virtually Race To Hong Kong By June 10 To Benefit Charity

June 2, 2020 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Six Langham Hotels & Resorts across three continents along with Langham Hospitality Group’s head office have committed to celebrating the 155th anniversary of the brand’s flagship, The Langham, London, by supporting local charities with a virtual race of 7,580 miles (12,198 km) to Hong Kong. Home to the Langham head office, Hong Kong is the virtual destination of this walk-, run- and bike-athon, which Langham hotel team members in London, New York, Boston, Chicago, Pasadena, Melbourne and Sydney are also aiming to reach, raising money for non-profit organizations in their markets as they do. The team at Langham Hospitality Group in Hong Kong are matching this effort by virtually racing to London.

“During this difficult time, we are thrilled to have something to celebrate, in this case the 155th anniversary of our flagship, The Langham, London,” said Carmen Ng, director of sustainability for Langham Hospitality Group. “To reflect the issues the world is facing, we are excited to be able to focus this celebration on giving back to the communities in which we operate, and encourage our colleagues to stay healthy while we do.”

Each hotel team has set up a fundraising website for their virtual races, with all proceeds benefitting charitable organizations specifically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically the NHS-19 COVID-19 Urgent Appeal in London; The Food Bank of New York City; Greater Chicago Food Depository; and LifeLine and HUMEN, two mental health charities, in Australia. The team from The Langham Huntington, Pasadena are focusing their efforts to raise money for the family of one of their colleagues lost to the virus. Langham Hospitality Group is supporting HandsOn Hong Kong’s campaign to help raise funds to provide relief care packages for Hong Kong’s vulnerable.
