The Bahamas Financial Services Board hosted its first ever Fun, Run, Walk on Saturday October 20th. The race was one of several events planned for the month of October to celebrate BFSBS’s 20th Anniversary. The fun, run, walk started promptly at 6am at Arawak Cay. Participants started at the western entrance of Arawak Cay, headed west down Saunders Beach towards Goodman’s Bay, where they turned back around and finished back at Arawak Cay.

The event was well attended with nearly one hundred participants which included BFSB member firms from within the financial services industry as well as members of the Bahamian public. All participants received a race medal for finishing the race. Trophies were awarded to first, second and third place female/male runners and walkers. The group trophy was also awarded to the first company who had all its members complete the race and this was earned by team Bana Del Sempione.

Participants also took advantage of the free health screening available under the medical tent which was a part of the mini health fair component of the event. Nurse Judith Scavella and her team of registered nurses checked participants blood pressure, cholesterol as well as glucose levels. As we continue to strive toward a healthier Bahamas, this was an opportunity we wanted to provide after the race for participants to have free screenings and a wellness chat with informed healthcare professionals.

The Awards Gala will be held next Friday, November 2nd, at the Bah Mar Resort and it will be the last event to round out the BFSB 20th Anniversary Celebration. Tickets for the event are $200 per person and available at BFSB office. Please contact us at 242-393-7001 or to reserve your tickets.
