(Hamilton, Bermuda – March 5, 2018) – Lindo’s Group of Companies today announces that the Lindo’s to Lindo’s race, previously rescheduled for May 13, has been cancelled.
The decision to cancel the 2018 Lindo’s to Lindo’s, originally due to take place on March 4, was made following severe weather and feedback from entrants about the new May 13 date. Lindo’s decided against holding it on a weekend with another sporting event so as not to detract from any other charitable fundraising.
Lindo’s will be holding a symbolic number, goodie bag and tee-shirt pick up on Saturday, March 10 between 10am and 12:30pm at National Stadium Cricket Pavilion for all of those who have registered for the event.
Zach Moniz, Lindo’s Family Foods Manager, said: “We are very disappointed to have to cancel the 2018 Lindo’s to Lindo’s. Unfortunately, we were unable to find a new date that suited our entrants and which didn’t clash with another charitable event.”
“We hope that everyone registered for the event will come to the symbolic number pick-up and collect their goody bags and t-shirts in lieu of requesting a refund. The Bermuda Diabetes Association faces a difficult fight and every dollar counts. We also hope that those who were planning to take part will try to find the time to undertake the four-mile walk or run in a time and place of their choosing.”
The event was designed to encourage the public to get moving and to raise funds for the Bermuda Diabetes Association’s education programmes and the renovation of a building purchased to house a fully comprehensive Diabetes Resource Centre.
