St Philip Team Challenge October 13
“Liking muhself” and liking muh health can land a team of six people $1 500 when the St Philip Independence Committee holds its Team Challenge on October 13.
According to chairman of the St Philip committee, Carl Alff Padmore, six challenges would test the physical and mental durability of the six-member teams and the committee wass hoping the challenge would ignite a greater desire in Barbados to pursue and maintain the best of health.
The Team Challenge will comprise a run from Foursquare to King George V Memorial Park; a walk from King George V Park to Bayleys; a run from Bayleys to Skeete’s Bay; a swim at Skeete’s Bay under the guidance of Mac Fingall and the Coast Guard; a ride passing Three Houses and Blades Hill and back to Three Houses where the final event, an obstacle course, will be staged.
Padmore said that corporate Barbados was keen to sign on to the event that was underscored by contributions made by Scotiabank to organizers yesterday.
Parish ambassadors Shakeira Trotman and Shomari Harrison were on hand to receive the donations from marketing manager Lisa Cole at Scotiabank’s corporate offices, CGI Towers, Warrens, St Michael.
The Barbados Defence Force and the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus have already signed up for participation, entering two teams each.
Padmore said organizers had targeted a maximum of 12 teams but would welcome more once they could get enough volunteers to man the routes.
“While the majority of prizes will be at stake in the Team Challenge, the family picnic atmosphere that will be created at Three Houses will demand the presence of everyone in St Philip and possibly Barbados,” said Padmore. (KB)
