Argus and The Centre on Philanthropy have once again teamed up to present "Walk the Walk", the annual 5K charity walk that let's each participant be a donor to their chairty of choice. All you have to do is go to www.racedayworld.com and sign-up as an individual or as a member of a team. The entry fee is $25 and $20 of that will go the Bermuda registered charity you choose on your entry form. The remaining $5 goes to support www.volunteer.bm, The Centre's online resource that pairs charities with the volunteers that need them most. In fact, after you register for Walk the Walk you could go straight to www.volunteer.bm and connect with your charity. Give them time and money!

Last year Walk the Walk raised over $19,000 for 87 registered charities, this year we're hoping to raise even more. If you'd like to help build awareness for the event download a flyer here

Walk the Walk starts at 8:30am on Sunday, February 26 at the Wesley Street entrance to the City Hall car park (right outside Argus and The Centre on Philanthropy). There is a warm-up starting at 8:15am.

Some other important information:

  • To help charities to maximise their fundrasing and outreach through Walk the Walk, The Centre is holding a special 'Lunch and Learn' on Wednesday January 25, for Walk the Walk. Contact us if you would like to learn more about this great opportunity.

Walk the Walk is a great opportunity for charities and their supporters to connect and raise money together. It is also a great opportunity for charities to reach out to their constituents and potential new supporters in a fun and healthy way, so make the most of it.
