The Bermuda End-to-End invites local charities to apply for support from funds raised in its 29th annual Island-wide event, to be held May 7, 2016.
“Each year, all the funds raised by those who generously pledge to support our 3,000 participants in the event are given to Bermuda charities,” says Anne Mello, chair of the End-to-End Charitable Trust. “Over the event’s 28 years, more than $5 million has been given to local charities – a record we are proud to have.”
In 2016, our funding focus will once again be on the needs of the Bermuda Family. The proceeds of our 2016 event will be used to fund non-sectarian Bermuda Charitable projects, programmes, and/or operating expenses that will help to support and strengthen our Bermuda Families.
Strong participation marked the 28th event: each of four charities supporting Bermuda families given cheques for $50,000. Bermuda End-to-End has donated $5,000,000 over 28 years.
Some of the standout participants, volunteers and supporters who made Bermuda’s largest and most inclusive charitable fund-raising event a success received awards at a lively outdoor ceremony at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess last month.
