RUN FOR A CAUSE!
Following on last year’s success, the 2021 Royal Gazette Bermuda Triangle Challenge is again offering race participants the opportunity to raise money for a Bermuda-based charity, or a charity of their choosing. For the 2021 Royal Gazette Bermuda Triangle Challenge, we are partnering with the following Bermuda charities:
Bermuda Diabetes Association
The mission of the Bermuda Diabetes Association is to lead the Bermuda community to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve the lives of those affected. The Bermuda Diabetes Association offers a variety of public education programs, including individual counseling, personal diabetes management sessions, diabetes screening events, community outreach presentations, and school programs.
Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce (BEST)
BEST‘s mission is to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Bermuda for present and future generations by engaging with the community to advocate for sustainable management and development of the physical, social, and economic environments. The organization’s focus areas include responding to environmental threats, influencing policy, communication & outreach, and building capacity. In the last decade, BEST has worked to protect Warwick Long Bay from beach development, produced position papers on issues that impact the island’s communities and environment, and saved South Basin/Cross Island from industrial development.
The mission of the Bermuda SPCA is to encourage and promote kindness to animals, to provide effective, lawful means for the prevention of cruelty to animals, and to promote the education for the general public on care and well-being of all animals. The Inspectorate team provides 24-hour emergency service for animals that have been injured or are in need of emergency care, as well as overseeing complaints of cruelty and neglect for all types of animals. As an animal shelter, the SPCA provides a safe-haven for animals in need of a home and an adoption service for abandoned, abused, or neglected animals. In an average year, the shelter finds homes for over 300 animals.
Meals on Wheels Bermuda
Meals on Wheels serves those who are unable to prepare a meal on their own, and who have no regular caregiver, friend, or family member who can consistently provide this service. A healthy diet augments mental acuity, immune system health, recuperation speed, and energy level, and assists in the management of chronic health issues. However, Meals on Wheels Bermuda provides more than just a nutritious meal. For many seniors, the trusted volunteer who shows up with a tasty meal and a warm smile is the only person they see or speak with all day. This special delivery is something many of our clients really look forward to.
How to Get Started
When you register through RunSignUp you will be given two options:
- Make a donation at the time of registration to the charity of your choice; or
- Start your own personal fundraiser to collect contributions from family, friends, and colleagues.
If you select option #2, RunSignUp will allow you to easily and quickly create your own personal fundraising page, with a unique URL that you can share on social media and in e-mails. This is a great way to tell your personal story, explain why you are fundraising for a specific charity, and set up a page that makes it convenient for people to donate from now until race day.
