‘Race for a Cause BAR Singles’ Raises Funds for Three Barbadian Charities
The Barbados Adventure Race (BAR) introduced a new concept this year with its Race for a Cause BAR Singles powered by the Amarone Charitable Trust (ACT). The event took place the morning of Saturday, November 21st at PEG Farm and Nature Reserve. This event had three charities as recipients inclusive of: the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Barbados, the Barbados Diabetes Foundation and the Substance Abuse Foundation Inc.
The Barbados Adventure Race is the first obstacle course race set in Barbados which is set along a unique mix of trails, road and some challenging hills.
Prize money was divided as follows from first to third: $1,000, $750 and $500. Each person who placed from 4th to 10th also had $250 matched on their behalf by the ACT to their chosen charity.
Trustee of the Amarone Charitable Trust David Csumrik said, “The Barbados Adventure Race is an event that promotes health and wellness in a very different way to any other event in Barbados. This directly aligns with two of our pillars of Health and Athletics, making this a great partnership for our organisation. Our aim when partnering with this event was to assist charities to create awareness, raise funds and empower individuals to donate time and money to the causes in the future.”
