The Argus Group will once again sponsor the Argus Walks the Walk event with The Centre on Philanthropy, taking place on Sunday, March 18, starting and ending outside the Argus Building on Wesley Street.

“It is an opportunity for many of Bermuda’s smaller charities to have a fundraiser without having to allocate resources to organise and run an event. The route is just over 5 kilometres and the event begins at 8:15am for a warm-up session and an 8:30am start outside The Argus Building, 14 Wesley Street.

“Entrants can register by visiting racedayworld.com; each registration costs $25, with $20 of that amount going to the charity selected by the participant and $5 going to support volunteer.bm. All local registered charities are eligible to receive donations for this event.”

“There will be prizes awarded to the largest youth, non-profit, and corporate teams that enter the event as well as prizes for best coordinated outfits, best choreography and best cheer.”

Michelle Jackson, Executive Vice President of The Argus Group, said, “We are delighted to once again support The Centre on Philanthropy with this innovative fundraiser, where the participants get to pick the cause they want to sponsor.

“Argus supports a wide range of charitable causes that align with our donations theme of prevention, be that prevention of illness, prevention of financial loss or prevention of the causes of anti-social behaviour. We encourage everyone to sign up and walk with friends and family so that they can get some exercise, give back to the community and have fun.”
