Dated 1st June

Patron of the 2017 International Events, José Ramos-Horta announced the Pelican Paradise Holdings’ $100,000 USD Gold Level cash sponsorship today. This crucial funding comes a critical time during the build up to both events and ensures that the organizers are able to fully engage all objectives, exceeding previous event standards.

Praising Pelican Paradise’s commitment José Ramos-Horta said: “It was around the same time that I launched the “Dili, City of Peace” international events, such as the Dili International Marathon and Tour de Timor, that Datuk Edward Ong became interested in developing the Pelican Paradise project. Today Noble Timor and the Pelican Paradise project both remain firmly committed to the same principles which saw these initiatives started: the consolidation of peace in Timor-Leste; the generation of employment; the development of a tourism industry that provides meaningful long lasting benefits for the nation, people and culture of Timor-Leste.”

For Pelican Paradise, the sponsorship is part of Pelican Paradise’s commitment to the people and belief in the future of Timor-Leste. “It is indeed an honour to partner Noble Timor to promote PEACE and TOURISM through these two events, not only to enable local youths to see the potential and the beauty of their beloved country but also to showcase Timor-Leste to the world,” said Datuk Edward Ong, President of Pelican Paradise Group. Pelican Paradise is confident that under the leadership of H.E. Dr José Ramos-Horta and the Noble Timor, with the strong support from the Timor-Leste Government, these two events will achieve it goals of bringing the local community together and the world to Timor-Leste while promoting the unique identity, personality and character of this young nation.

For the Dili International Marathon the 5km fun run will be branded as the Pelican Paradise 5km Fun Run. With over 5000 participants expected, this will be biggest event of the day. Activities and live music performances will keep the participants, both young and old, entertained throughout the event. A festive atmosphere is expected at the start-finish line to welcome home the full and half marathon runners.

The Tour de Timor will see all water stations branded as “Pelican Paradise Water Stations”. These water stations provide life saving refreshments along the Tour de Timor’s beautiful, but challenging 500+ km course.

Mr. Ramos-Horta went onto to say: “It is a testament to Datuk Ong’s perseverance, dedication and belief in the Pelican Paradise project and in Timor-Leste’s future that he remains committed to Timor-Leste after such a long period. Thanks to Pelican Paradise’s generous sponsorship and the efforts of Noble Timor’s organizers, I have full belief that Timor-Leste’s vision and the people’s expectations for the events will be a success this year and in the years to come.”

Over 5000 runners are expected to compete across the three races of the Dili international Marathon.
