May 3, 2022

A school student who sustained a traumatic brain injury will join his Warwick Academy classmates in participating in the 35th Annual Convex Bermuda End to End on Saturday [May 7].

David Goonewardene, who is now 17, suffered a brain injury after a car he was a passenger in struck a wall on Knapton Hill Road in Smith’s in March last year.

He and his school friends will walk from Warwick Academy on Middle Road to Dockyard as part of the “Middle to End” in a show of support for his recovery.

Helen Cart, David’s mother, said: “A year ago, we weren’t sure what the future held for David. We weren’t even sure he would walk again.

“Needless to say, 15 months into his recovery, he has worked towards his goal and has signed up to support and participate in the 35th Annual Bermuda End to End.

“Thanks to the tremendous support of his medical team, therapists, WindReach Bermuda, his school, Warwick Academy, his friends and family.”
