Oct 5: PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run And Walk

September 9, 2014

Now in its 17th year, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run and Walk, presented by Mid-Atlantic Athletic Club [MAAC], sponsored by PartnerRe Ltd, and sanctioned by the Bermuda National Athletics Association [BNAA], is set to take place on October 5, 2014.

A spokesperson said, “One of the few all female events on Bermuda’s sporting calendar, it includes a 5K race for women, as well as a 5K walk and a 2K run for girls under 15. The goal is female fitness, health, safety, and self-esteem, with all proceeds going annually to a cause that promotes these values.

“Since 1998, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run and Walk has raised more than $390,000 for female-related causes in Bermuda, including programmes to fight heart disease, confront physical abuse, support rape victims, educate teenagers, combat breast cancer, and fund equipment and initiatives supporting the treatment of women’s health.

“2014 marks 17 years of support for women’s causes in Bermuda, and this year all entry fee proceeds, matched by title sponsor PartnerRe Ltd, will go directly to the Bermuda Diabetes Association’s Gestational Diabetes Project.”
