This initiative has consistently encouraged active lifestyle across its location in major cities in Indonesia.

“When we started HARRIS Day with fun bike program in 2010, it was organized only in Jakarta with few hundreds participants. Fast-forward to 2018, it is now in 6 cities with 6000 participants,” said Stefano de Champeaux, Corporate HARRIS Hotels Brand, ”We see that this active program keeps on getting bigger aligned with priorities of healthier choices of our guests, partners and employees.”

In addition to support the aspiration to stay healthy, HARRIS Hotels will also donate a portion of the revenue from the entry tickets to TAUZIA Equal Chance, a CSR program from TAUZIA Hotels to support the education for underprivileged children in Indonesia.

“While having fun biking in HARRIS Day, we also provide a chance for all participants to share with others as we automatically donate half of their ticket fee to our strategic partner, ISCO Foundation.” concluded Stefano.
