Soca cruise offered at cancer fundraiser

Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre has teamed up with Ubersoca Cruise for this year's 20th Anniversary BF&M Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

In celebration of the event, Ubersoca has donated two cabins for a five-day, four-night cruise on board the Norwegian Pearl for a winning fundraiser and someone who has survived, or is still battling, cancer.

A spokeswoman said: “The first cabin is to be used as a fundraising incentive to help encourage participants to raise as much money as possible for our local initiatives.

“Very generously, Ubersoca Cruise has suggested that the second cabin be given to a cancer survivor, alternatively, someone who is currently battling cancer who would likely benefit from such an experience.

“The recipient will be selected by the staff of the Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre and will be announced during the walk.”

Tara Curtis, executive director at Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, said she was excited to announce the collaboration, which is hoped to incentivise participants to raise more funds and give back to a deserving cancer survivor.

The Ubersoca Cruise is the first and only cruise ship charter dedicated to soca music. Travelling between Miami and Ocho Rios, Jamaica, the cruise features a collection of soca artists and DJs including Kes the Band, Kerwin Dubois, Lyrikal, Ricardo Drue and Destra.

The 20th Anniversary BF&M Breast Cancer Walk will be held on October 20, starting at Barr's Bay Park. Walk packs and registration will begin on September 1, and will include a 20th anniversary shirt, pin, all registration/pledge/incentive forms and a lunch bag.

Those interested in participating can register at BF&M, Sportseller, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre or online at www.racedayworld.com.
