NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS — On Saturday, March 9, 2019, cyclists from around the country will descend upon Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera, to participate in Run and Ride for Hope with one goal in mind: eradicate cancer in The Bahamas.
The annual fundraiser offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to bike 100 miles around the stunningly beautiful island of Eleuthera, all while raising money to assist Bahamians in the fight against cancer.
“The distance you ride is entirely your choice. Every participant has a highly personalized journey,” said Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty. “Not only is this an important fundraiser in terms of raising money to help those suffering from cancer, but it’s an excellent opportunity for families to participate in a meaningful event together. Several of our team members will be running or biking with their families.”
Since launching 13 years ago, the event has raised more than $3,000,000 through the generosity of individual and corporate sponsorships. This year marks the seventh year that Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty has been a sponsor of Ride for Hope and the fourth year that the company has contributed $10,000 as a Yellow Jersey Corporate Sponsor.
Donations raised by the run and bike-a-thon support the Treatment Assistance Fund which helps cancer patients with their treatment costs through financial grants. Donations also contribute to programs such as the Cancer Society’s nationwide Cancer Education Program, a grassroots outreach effort that sends trained nurses to communities throughout The Bahamas to educate, raise awareness, and teach self-screening and good health choices.
“Cancer has directly touched the lives of everyone in our company, whether personally or through a loved one’s battle,” Rademaker said. “The support of this cause is something that’s very close to our hearts. We’re so proud that so many members of our team will be able to participate this year, and we’re honored to offer all of the support that we can.”
