Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC will take to the streets for the fourth consecutive year to sponsor its FANtastic March, a 5K fundraiser event, on Sept. 7.  The funds raised by Mandarin Oriental colleagues will be used to purchase “newborn kits” for Unity Health Care, Inc., and families in need in Southwest DC.

“Supporting our community and our neighbors of Southwest remains a very important initiative for Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC,” said General Manager Adriaan Radder.  “Our FANtastic March has not only provided much-needed funds for three previous organizations in Southwest DC, but the event itself has also been recognized by the Hotel Association of DC for its creativity and results. We look forward to another great event to benefit Unity Health Care Incorporated.”

The FANtastic March IV will begin at 9 a.m. on Sept. 7 at the Mandarin Oriental and wind around the National Mall before returning to the hotel for a celebratory BBQ at approximately at 11 a.m. The fee to participate in the walk is $45 per person and includes a continental breakfast, a morning pre-walk stretching, an event t-shirt, and admission to the celebratory BBQ.

We have been committed to serving our Southwest community since we took over the management of the Southwest Health Center in 2001. Providing quality and compassionate health care is who we are,” said Vincent A. Keane, President and CEO of Unity Health Care, Inc.  “We are so very grateful to everyone at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for their commitment to joining us in serving those who are medically vulnerable. On behalf of our new moms – we thank you for your donation of ‘well-baby’ kits, which will provide them with the necessities they need to promote healthier communities one new little one at a time.”
