The Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust (BHCT) has launched an online platform allowing donors to pledge through their website.

Donations, comments and words of encouragement for individual participants’ fundraising activities can be made in a secure way through the site.

The BHCT is a non-profit organisation that supports the Bermuda Hospitals Board.

A press release explained: “The initiative is part of the Why it Matters capital campaign to support the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) redevelopment project. The campaign is more than half over with just 15 months remaining. All funds raised through the personalised pledge pages will go towards Why it Matters.

“This custom built online platform allows individuals or groups the opportunity to add fundraising to any new year’s resolutions or personal goals such a participating in a marathon. Each pledge page can be personalised to highlight fundraising goals, biographies and even a photo to encourage donations.”

The website was developed and donated by sister companies Nova and Vertigo, and is up and running in time for the Bermuda Marathon Weekend, which begins on January 18. Runners and walkers can e-mail their registration confirmation, personal fundraising goal, a photo and any personal story they wish to share to BHCT will create an online pledge page that can be accessed at

To support a runner/walker go online to Participants who raise $100 or more will receive a thank you gift from the BHCT. More information is available at or by calling BHCT on 298-0152.
