Scotiabank (BVI) Limited in collaboration with the British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority will host the second annual 5K Walk/Run on 7th November to benefit the Peebles Hospital Pediatric Unit.
Last year Scotiabank (BVI) Limited pledged to donate $15,000 annually over three years, totaling $45,000, and will co-host several local fundraising initiatives to help generate additional funds to aid the Pediatric Unit.
Speaking with Mrs. Cedorene Malone-Smith, she said “Last year was the first time this event took place and we were overwhelmed by its success. The first annual 5k Walk/Run with the bank’s first installment and corporate sponsorship generated $40,000 in 2014, and both the BVIHSA and Scotiabank (BVI) Limited hope to exceed that amount this year.”
The registration cost is $25.00 for adults and children under 12 years of age are free. The first 100 persons to register will receive prizes complement of Scotiabank and other corporate sponsors.
Persons can register as an individual or as a group. Registration forms will be available at every Scotiabank branch, at Peebles Hospital, at all Community Health Clinics and can be downloaded at www.bvihsa.vg. Interested persons are kindly asked to contact Olanzo Boynes at 541-1446 / 852-2188 or Franka Potter 541-1602.
