Alumni of Raleigh Bermuda are joining forces for a trek to raise funds for the charity.

And one former participant, Jason Rhind, will be taking part remotely from war-torn Ukraine where he is providing humanitarian aid.

The Second Annual Alumni Trek Race is due to take place on Sunday and will see 16 Raleigh athletes competing in three routes trekking up to 24 kilometres with a rucksack.

They will start in Dockyard at 10am and will make their way through different trek levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced – before completing the route at Raleigh’s headquarters in Pembroke by about 2.30pm.

A spokeswoman for Raleigh said: “The event will conclude at Raleigh with the arrival of the advanced trekkers and all participants in the race.

“The Raleigh winners’ celebration will be a private event but Raleigh is asking all community members to cheer and support our athletes from the streets and the front lawns of their home.

“Raleigh athletes will be accepting pledges and donations from the community for this fundraiser.

“Raleigh Bermuda is known for its adventurous survival training camps and overseas expeditions.

“Young Bermudians who join Raleigh’s Venturers’ Programme are locally trained in an intensive survival skills-based programme and then are given the opportunity to go overseas and be challenged to climb mountains, trek jungles and rivers, and complete international and community projects.”

The 2022 Raleigh athletes are: James Lee [the 2021 Ultimate Survivor Winner]; A’Jahni Smith, Eric Wallace Jr; Torrell Stuart; Christianna Warren; Antahsukha Akshayasukha; Keri Pacheco; Dennika Wright; Audrey Dean; Nicole Warren; Matthias Lawrence; Te’Meira Rutherford; Jendaya Mills-Paynter; and Ta’Ziyah Kelly.

Donations or racer pledges can be made via online banking at HSBC account #: 010120756001, [reference athlete’s name for pledges], or on P-Tix at: https://www.ptix.bm/Event/560/Raleigh-Bermuda-Donation-Page/

The event is being sponsored and supported by International Sports Shop, Butterfield & Vallis and One Communications.
