Hilton Sofia Travelled Around the World in a Day

Established in 2007, Around the World in a Day takes place every year in June involving schools, children institutions, Hilton hotels, businesses and supporters from across Europe. To date the event has raised more than EUR 950,000 reaching 137,000 young people.

It is a fun-filled community youth engagement, organised together with Hilton Hotels’ worldwide partner, DM Thomas Foundation for Young People and dedicated to supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and children. At the end of the event, Hilton adds together everyone’s kilometers, aiming to travel the circumference of the globe, or 40,075 kms!

The Hilton Sofia team is very happy with the success of Sofia’s fourth Around the World in a Day event. A total of 442 guests including 80 kids joined the running, bicycling and entertainment activities on Sunday, 5 June, that aimed to travel as many kilometers as possible and help CEDAR Foundation and the children in need from the family type homes in Kazanlak.

The results are impressive: 2,563 km travelled and over BGN 12,500 raised! Highlights of the event included a raffle, garden barbeque, Petanque game, table tennis competition as well as kids playground with a bouncy castle and World Environment Day-themed games.
