The Catlin Bermuda End-to-End event will feature a one-time challenge this year, when the CEO of the charity’s title sponsor, Graham Pewter, takes to the course in order to raise money for the Centre on Philanthropy.
“The Bermuda End-to-End has selected four family-oriented charities to receive support from the 2015 Catlin End-to-End,” said Anne Mello, chair of the End-to-End Charitable Trust, which organizes the May 2 event. “They include Bermuda’s largest food bank; family counselling; a student mentoring programme; and Bermuda’s only hospice.”
“This year we are also supporting Graham’s efforts to take part in our event to raise money for the Centre on Philanthropy, via that charity’s ‘Chairman’s Challenge’ fundraising drive,” she added.
“As deputy chair of the Centre on Philanthropy, Graham has chosen to do the End-to-End course twice – once on a bicycle and once on foot – as part of a team challenge by that charity. We admire and support his huge commitment to the charities he is involved with.”
The Centre on Philanthropy works to create an effective and sustainable charitable sector in Bermuda by providing training and education, fostering collaboration and supporting volunteerism. It has been the catalyst for positive change in the sector, and provides a unified voice for its more than 350 member charities.
The charities supported by the Catlin End-to-End’s 2015 fundraisers are:
The Catlin End-to-End event is organised by the Bermuda End-to-End Charitable Trust’s Board, and is supported by numerous local sponsors and more than 2,500 individual event participants.
