ConocoPhillips signed the Gold Sponsorship deal for ROTA's Wheels 'n' Heels

In February 2008, ConocoPhillips Ltd Qatar was the exclusive Gold Sponsor of Qatar-based NGO Reach Out To Asia, ROTA’s, third Wheels ‘n’ Heels community fun day.

As part of its commitment to the local community, ROTA has been holding the Wheels ‘n’ Heels event since 2006 along with ConocoPhillips as its partner. The annual fun-filled event aims to involve Doha’s multinational communities, reminding them and informing them about the importance of a healthy lifestyle achieved through sports and proper nutrition.

Wheels ‘n’ Heels have attracted over 10,000 supporters and volunteers, including international celebrities, cyclists, skaters, skateboarders, walkers and those with special needs. The fun day is a great opportunity to support ROTA’s cause to promote education across the continent. In addition to the sponsorship deal, the employees of ConocoPhillips and their families also participated in the Wheels ‘n’ Heels 2008 charity walk. They joined the initiative with the hope that their support would help thousands of children throughout Asia for whom quality education is still beyond reach.
