PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk On Oct 6

September 29, 2019

The PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk will be held on Sunday, October 6.

The event page said, “Now in its 22nd year, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk is presented by Mid-Atlantic Athletic Club [MAAC], sponsored by PartnerRe Ltd. and sanctioned by the Bermuda National Athletics Association [BNAA].

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

“Since 1998, the PartnerRe Women’s 5K Run & Walk has raised more than $400,000 for female-related causes in Bermuda. These include 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.

“2019 marks 22 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 Coalition of the protection of children.
