Photos/Video: End To End Walk Gets Underway

May 2, 2015

The Catlin End-to-End Event got underway this morning [May 2] with large crowds of people setting out to walk the entire length of the island in a bid to raise money for charity.

The charities being supported by the Catlin End-to-End’s 2015 fundraiser include:

The Eliza DoLittle Society: Bermuda’s largest food bank, providing free food to nearly all the feeding programmes on the Island, including the Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, Coalition for the Protection of Children, and some families on Government assistance. It also directly provides food to 300 individuals or families and operates a twice-weekly free lunch service in Hamilton. TEDS has distributed 200,000 pounds of food in Bermuda this year.


.

Family Centre: A 25-year-old charity offering intensive counselling services, including screening, child and family counselling, school-based counselling, and community and home counselling. Programmes serve children suffering from abuse, neglect or other emotional challenges, and high-risk families. The Family Centre delivered 900 direct services to children and families in 2013.

Friends of Hospice: Bermuda’s only hospice, which provides both end-of-life care and palliative care for inpatients and operates a day hospice. It also operates a companion programme for people who otherwise would not have visitors, and a bereavement programme to help families cope with loss – before and after their loved one dies.

YouthNet: An island-wide programme, which matches volunteer mentors with 800 public school students each year, giving “at risk” students extra attention and support in both academics and social interactions. Around half the students are in the YouthNet reading programme, High school students can be linked with peer mentors from other schools.
