September 2, 2016

Polaris Holding Company CEO Warren Jones recently announced the company’s support of the annual Labour Day 5K Fun Run as part of the Bermuda TUC 70th Anniversary celebrations.

Mr. Jones presented organizer Andre Rochester of Swan’s Running Club with a cheque for $1,500 and joined in encouraging the community to sign up for the race on Monday, September 5.

Mr. Jones said, “The team that powers our dock operations, the Stevedores, have a long history with the union. Their contribution to Bermuda and the Labour movement is significant and it is a natural move to become partners for the race during this anniversary year.”

Mr. Rochester said, “Swan’s Running Club is pleased to be a part of this historic moment and encourages the entire community to sign up to participate, get active or compete or simply come and support the runners.”
