A huge part of our community outreach initiatives over the last decade has been our Spring Fun Walk and Run event held annually around March/April. This event is the largest, free walk-a-thon in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and allows us to give back to the community by promoting a healthy lifestyle in a fun, friendly environment.
Held at our main office on Providenciales, the event invites the community to walk, jog or run either a 5K or 10K route. Cyclists are also invited to ride a uniquely challenging route. FortisTCI welcomes the participation of health and fitness-related businesses and NGOs such as the National Cancer Society, the Heart Foundation and many others to provide useful information and basic health services at the event.
Prizes for top runners and cyclists, t-shirts and other giveaways and hot and cold breakfast options for all ensure a well-rounded fun-filled event for the entire family. The success of this event has led to the hosting of a similar event on Grand Turk in the fall of each year.
