“The Racers are Anna Laura Hocking, Philip Martin, Andy McComb and Mark Harris. The Bermudian team is called ‘Bermuda Penguins’ and will be making their way down to South America this month and will then board an expedition ship to continue their journey south to the continent of Antarctica.

Raleigh Executive Director Ms. Dany Pen says, “Adventure is one of the pillars of Raleigh Bermuda and trekking is the very heart of our organization. We are thankful to the Team Bermuda Penguins for choosing us as their charity for this epic adventure.”

Raleigh Bermuda Chair, Ms. Tasha Jones says, “We are extremely grateful that the Bermuda Penguins chose our Raleigh Bermuda family to receive the funds they raise for their expedition. We are also super excited for them and wish them all the best as they embark on this amazing adventure. Go Bermuda Penguins!”

A spokesperson added, “At Raleigh Bermuda, we are working towards reaching more young Bermudians and increasing our outreach to those who are at risk of not reaching their full potential to effectively help them manage and overcome the ‘day-to-day’ risks they face especially during this pandemic such as gang membership, depression, suicide, drugs, abuse, and crimes.

Raleigh Bermuda also offers their “Brave: Anti-Violence” programme, working with high school students ages 14–17 by providing introductory positive life skills. To further help our young people, Raleigh has also opened a “safe space” called Malcolm’s Room to help young people have a space to escape abuse, harm, and toxic environments.
