College Students Walk The Talk For End-To-End

April 26, 2019

College students are getting ready to walk the talk and pitch in to help people tired and thirsty after taking part in the AXA End-to-End.

Elijah John-Lowe, Jair Duke, Caleb Roberts and Jared Rego are all part of MENSPEAK, a student organisation at Bermuda College which aims to raise student awareness of and help address issues impacting the community, and have volunteered to man the water station at Dockyard.

“We were brainstorming how to get involved in the community,” said Elijah-John. “We felt that helping with the End-to-End fulfilled the MENSPEAK mission and would help the community.”

Jair, who will walk the Middle-to-End before joining his friends at the water station, added: It’s my first time. I wanted to do something that was healthy as well as doing something that would help Bermuda.”

And Caleb added: “MENSPEAK is about helping young men with leadership roles and influencing others and I think we will help to do that by getting involved in the End-to-End.”

For Jared, it is the third time he has helped man the water station and said: “I want to keep myself busy and at the same time help the best cause possible.”

This will be the seventh time MENSPEAK has manned the water station and Anne Mello, End-to-End Board Chair, said: “I cannot thank these young men enough. I think that they are setting a fantastic example and the College, everyone, should be proud of them.”

This year’s End-to-End takes place on May 4. You can register or donate here:

    Great to know that these young men are making themselves known to the community as representatives of the organisation MENSPEAK.

    Could these young men, and the End-to-End organisers, please encourage walkers and participants to minimise their waste along the walk, maybe even holding it all (in pockets or backpacks) to dispose of it all at the end of the walk? This would reduce or even eliminate the need for other people to go behind the walkers to pick up what has been disposed of along the way. Thank you!
