On Saturday, June 8, 2019, Playa Hotels and Resorts, Jamaica, in partnership with Running Events Jamaica, will be holding its first 5K Run/Walk, where it is expected that some 200 participants will be celebrating Global Wellness Day in keeping with its own thrust towards health and wellness.

The 5k Run/Walk is a unique opportunity for staff members from the seven Playa owned hotels in Jamaica to have a chance to mingle, build team spirit and promote health and wellness throughout the resorts.

The run, which is to begin at the Hilton Rose Hall in Montego Bay, at 6 a.m., will see associates from all newly owned Playa resorts. These include Hyatt Zilara, Hyatt Ziva, Jewel Grande Montego Bay, Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, Jewel Resorts, St. Ann (which comprises of Jewel Paradise Cove, Jewel Dunn’s River and Jewel Runaway Bay).

“We are excited about this initiative as we aim to ensure that all associates work to create memorable moments, work together to make Playa the best place to work while valuing diversity, passion, and contributing to a fun and healthy workplace. These are important aspects of Playa’s 10 service initiatives said Managing Director/General Manager of Jewel Resorts/Hilton Rose Hall, Carol Bourke, who initiated the event.

This promises to be a day filled with celebration and accomplishment as some of the resorts mark one year under PLAYA ownership/management. Participants can take advantage of the opportunity to meet associates from all other resorts, get insight into the operations of each property, network and build lasting friendships.

All this while celebrating World Global Wellness day.
