Menspeak pitches in to help End-to-End
Students at Bermuda College are pitching in to help people tired and thirsty people taking part in the Axa End-to-End on Saturday.
Elijah-John Lowe, Jair Duke, Caleb Roberts and Jared Rego are members of Menspeak, a group at Bermuda College aimed at raising student awareness issues impacting the community.
They have volunteered to man the water station at Dockyard for the charity event.
Mr Lowe said the group had been “brainstorming how to get involved in the community”.
“We felt that helping with the End-to-End fulfilled the Menspeak mission and would help the community.”
Mr Duke, who will walk the Middle-to-End before joining his friends at the water station, added: It’s my first time. I wanted to do something that was healthy as well as doing something that would help Bermuda.”
Mr Roberts said: “Menspeak is about helping young men with leadership roles and influencing others and I think we will help to do that by getting involved in the End-to-End.”
It will be Mr Rego’s third time helping to man the water station.
He said: “I want to keep myself busy and at the same time help the best cause possible.”
This marks the seventh time Menspeak has manned the water station.
Anne Mello, chairwoman of the End-to-End board said: “I cannot thank these young men enough. I think that they are setting a fantastic example and the college, everyone, should be proud of them.”
