Local medical supplier, Ports International is proud to support Sunshine Insurance’s Race Weekend by providing medical supplies and equipment needed for their fourth annual marathon, half marathon, relay, and Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure® 5K.
The event features runners from 20 countries and 27 states and is supported by a large volunteer contingent from every walk of Bahamian life.
Sunshine Insurance, in its role as the lead sponsor and organizer for Marathon Bahamas, has fostered a strategic partnership between Marathon Bahamas and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the global leader of the breast cancer movement and the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists – a partnership that could significantly impact the health of Bahamians, especially in the areas of breast cancer and other women’s health issues.
The Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure is an annual event not only to raise money for the beneficiaries but also to bring attention to the dreaded disease that affect so many of our Bahamian women. 100 percent of the money raised by the Race for the Cure will remain in The Bahamas to fund breast cancer and women’s health programs.
Beneficiaries for the events are: The Cancer Society of The Bahamas, The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group, The Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative and the Cancer Association of Grand Bahama.
