THE Barbados International Business Association (BIBA) held its annual charity health walk/run yesterday afternoon.

More than 350 people participated in the event which coincides with the association’s International Business Week of activities which also commenced yesterday.

At 4 p.m. the runners and walkers started their journey from BIBA’s Belleville office to Aquatic Gap, St Michael.
