On June 7-8, Marriott Vacations Worldwide celebrated Global Wellness Day at more than 60 timeshare resorts and corporate offices around the world to recognize all of the benefits of living an active and healthy lifestyle. Owners, members, guests, and Marriott associates were able to take part in a number of unique wellness activities including beach cleanups, group runs, water aerobics, morning yoga, and obstacle course challenges.
