Lindo’s to Lindo’s goes virtual

The annual Lindo’s to Lindo’s fundraising walk will return this year in virtual form to combat the threat of diabetes in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event, organised by the Bermuda Diabetes Association and the Lindo’s Group of Companies, will be held over the course of three days – March 19 to March 22 – to spread out participants.

And while the walk usually ventures from Lindo’s in Warwick to Lindo’s in Devonshire, organisers have this year offered an alternative route that weaves through St George’s.

A BDA spokeswoman said: “The route planned starts in St George’s square, walking up past Convict Bay to Gates Fort, then on towards the new St Regis hotel to find the Virginia Settlers’ plaque, past the entrance to Tobacco Bay and back to St George’s square via the golf course, walking down past the Unfinished Church.

“The benefit to taking part in the virtual walk in St George’s will be to take advantage of many special offers provided by local St George’s’ vendors – Bermuda Linens, 1612 Provisions and Bermuda Sea Glass by Kelly’s are all offering in-store discounts to anyone wearing your walk shirt or showing your bib number.

“Wahoo’s restaurant will be entering the names of anyone with an official bib into a draw for restaurant gift certificates and the Wharf Tavern are giving 10 per cent off meals to anyone wearing the walk shirt or showing your downloaded official bib number.”

The first 500 people to register for the event will receive free T-shirts from title sponsor Lindo’s, while BDA Spirits will offer a climate-neutral aluminium bottle of water.

Both rewards can be collected from the Bermuda Diabetes Association Resource Centre on Princess Street in Hamilton between March 13 and March 18.

Registration costs $20, and those who sign on will receive a downloadable race bin with a number, used to collect the various benefits.

Entrants will have their names entered into a draw for additional prizes and those who raise more than $100 in pledges or who make an additional $100 donation will be entered into a raffle for two JetBlue airline tickets.
