Sign up for Argus Walks the Walk
The Argus Group will sponsor the Argus Walks the Walk with The Centre on Philanthropy on March 18.
The walk, which starts and ends outside the Argus Building on Wesley Street, Hamilton, allows participants to donate their entry fee to their favourite Bermudian-registered charity.
It is an opportunity for many of Bermuda’s smaller charities to have a fundraiser without having to allocate resources to organise and run an event.
The route is more than five kilometres and the event begins at 8.15am for a warm-up session and an 8.30am start.
Entrants can register by visiting RaceDayWorld.com and each registration costs $25.
Of this, $20 goes to the charity selected by the participant and $5 to support Volunteer.bm. All local registered charities are eligible to receive donations for this event.
Prizes will be awarded to the largest youth, non-profit and corporate teams as well as for best co-ordinated outfits, best choreography and best cheer.
Michelle Jackson, executive vice-president of The Argus Group, said: “We are delighted to once again support The Centre on Philanthropy with this innovative fundraiser, where the participants get to pick the cause they want to sponsor.
“Argus supports a wide range of charitable causes that align with our donations theme of prevention, be that prevention of illness, prevention of financial loss or prevention of the causes of antisocial behaviour.
“We encourage everyone to sign up and walk with friends and family so that they can get some exercise, give back to the community and have fun.”
Danielle Riviere, interim executive director of The Centre on Philanthropy, said: “We are pleased to be working with Argus for the eighth Argus Walks the Walk with the Centre on Philanthropy event and we are grateful for their generosity in sponsoring the race.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Bermudians to show their support for their favourite local charity.”
