The 30th annual P.A.L.S. Cancer Care Sponsored Walk took place this morning [Feb 18], with the event serving to help raise money to support patient cancer care in Bermuda.

“This is our major annual fundraiser, with contributed funds donated to medical care, equipment and supplies for cancer patients in Bermuda,” P.A.L.S. previously said. “Last year’s event attracted 600 participants and raised more than $35,000.

Colleen English De Grilla, P.A.L.S. Executive Director, previously commented, “The P.A.L.S. Fun Run/Walk is our major annual fundraiser and is important to our commitment to provide each and every cancer patient in Bermuda with all the care and comfort possible. P.A.L.S. spends over $3,000 a day on patient care and receives no government grants. We rely on individual and corporate donations and events such as this to assist all patients and families free of charge.”

“We would again like to thank our lead sponsor Clarien Bank for their generous support of this wonderful community event, along with supporting sponsors Colonial Insurance, Butterfield & Vallis and Europa Imports. We encourage the whole community to “Join the Journey” and “Walk with Us for Cancer Care in Bermuda!”

Michael DeCouto, Chief Marketing Officer of Clarien Bank, said, “It is always a privilege for Clarien to support P.A.L.S. and the critical service it provides to cancer patients. Clarien employees will be involved either as participants and volunteers and so we urge the community to join us and help make this 30th anniversary event the most successful ever.”
