Following the early morning warm up and prayer for safety, the VP of Customer and Corporate Services, Allan Robinson, signalled the start and the race was on. Residents, ex-pats, locals and tourists alike came out to walk, run and cycle. While all participants scored a victory on the path to a healthier lifestyle, there were a few to cross the finish line first in their categories.
For the 10K run: first male – Lofton Seymour, first female – Lynn Robinson, first child – Cole Nickson, first FortisTCI male – Nore Verdieu and first FortisTCI female – Kebba Morgan. In the cyclists category Stewart Howard came in first for their 24.5K route and Scotia Bank captured the prize for having the largest corporate group in attendance with 50 employees representing their company. Winning the non-corporate obstacle course challenge was Berg Blein, and winning the corporate obstacle course challenge was Arnold Smith who represented Gansevoort. The final award of the morning was presented to Nadine Johnson, the grand prize raffle winner, who ran away with a health and fitness start up package that included a fitness tracking device, a smart scale, music earbuds for runners, a gym bag, sports armband, a gym membership and a nutritional consultation.




Keeping in line with the theme of ‘Get Fit – Be Healthy,’ breakfast was served to all in attendance and partnering groups were on hand to showcase their organizations and worthy causes. This included representatives from the Cancer Society, the Heart Foundation, the Kidney Foundation, the Red Cross, Nurses from the Cheshire Hall Medical Centre, Family Medical Care, Courtyard Chiropractic, Nutrition in Demand and Wrightfully Fit Fitness Centre. Participants were offered free blood sugar and pressure testing, free BMI testing and chiropractic consultation, nutritional guidance and the opportunity to learn more about the country’s non-profit organizations and associations.
