TRAINING PROGRAMS?

A novice to the marathon and half marathon distances?

The average age of the runner/walker has increased to 40+.

The unequaled positive attitude boost, significant stress release and overall increase in vitality, focus and creativity are all reasons why people are starting to and continuing to run/walk.

To choose a goal whether it be getting off of the couch, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon or beyond, to finish will leave you feeling like a champion and your life will be changed for the better.

You can do it!

Let Jeff Galloway training programs guide you!

SUSAN G. KOMEN BAHAMAS RACE FOR THE CURE- 5k

The 3.1 mile run/walk is scheduled for January 17 at 7:00 am from Montague to Paradise Island.

At the finish line, Race Village, the event will culminate with the Survivor Ceremony where we will be celebrating survivorship.

Survivors are the stars of our Race.

We honour and celebrate our courageous breast cancer survivors, who inspire us to continue the fight to end breast cancer forever.

From the moment a person’s breast cancer diagnosis is confirmed, he or she is considered a survivor.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help.

Remember EARLY DETECTION IS THE BEST PREVENTION

100% of race weekend proceeds benefit our beneficiaries:

Sister Sister Support Group

Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation

Cancer Society of The Bahamas

Cancer Society of Grand Bahama

Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative
