Lindo’s s races to raise funds for charity
Lindo’s Group of Companies will once again be hosting its annual Lindo’s to Lindo’s races on Sunday.
The Lindo’s to Lindo’s is a fun way to get the people outside with friends and family and to raise awareness of diabetes and funds for the Bermuda Diabetes Association.
This year, the Bermuda Diabetes Association is celebrating its 40th year of providing support for those with diabetes and working with the public on diabetes prevention.
Participants will take the usual route between Lindo’s Family Foods in Warwick and Lindo’s Market in Devonshire, along South Road and Middle Road for a ten-kilometre run or a four-mile walk.
In addition to raising money for a good cause, entrants will also secure a goodie bag if they are among the first 1,000 participants to register.
There are also prizes on offer for those who raise funds for the Bermuda Diabetes Association and put in the best times.
Every participant who raises $100 or more in pledges will be entered in a draw to win a pair of round-trip tickets generously provided by JetBlue.
Zach Moniz, Lindo’s Family Foods manager, said: “We are proud to support the incredibly valuable work that the Bermuda Diabetes Association does for Bermuda. We hope that people take this opportunity to get out into the fresh air on Sunday morning with their loved ones and celebrate their health.”
Sara Bosch de Noya, diabetes educator at the Bermuda Diabetes Association, said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with Lindo’s for this year’s Lindo’s to Lindo’s and very grateful for their continued support.
“While we are pleased to be celebrating 40 years of helping the public, we recognise there is much work to be done. With the funds raised by the annual Lindo’s to Lindo’s, one of our biggest fundraisers, we are closer than ever to opening our dedicated Diabetes Centre to provide even more resources and services for those with diabetes in the community.”
Prizes will be awarded to winners in the following categories for the 10K Run: Male and Female Overall; Male and Female Junior (aged over 12 and under 20); Open (aged 20 to 39); Master (aged 40 to 49); Senior Master (aged 50 to 59); Veteran (aged 60 to 64); Senior Veteran (aged 65 to 69); Experienced Veteran (aged 70+)
There will be awards for the first male and female finishers of Italian descent, in memory of Aldo Balia.
Prizes will also handed out for the fastest competitive walkers in the Four-Mile Walk and for the school and company that enter the most students or employees to either event.
The 10K and Four-Mile Walk will begin at 8.30am.
There is no entry fee for those who raise over $100, or a reduced fee of $15 for those registering late.
