The deadline for applications by charities for funding from the 2017 XL Catlin End-to-End is Friday, October 21, 2016 at 5pm. Four charities will receive funding of $50,000 to $65,000 and will be selected from the applications by the End-to-End selection committee.
The End-to-End makes grants on behalf of its participants, sponsors, volunteers and supporters. Successful applications for funding must benefit the community, engender the support and enthusiasm of our fundraisers and sponsors, and be able to prove that donations are spent wisely and responsibly.
In spite of the gloomy weather predictions, 2,400 intrepid supporters signed up and raised over $230,000, and more than $5.25 million over our 29 year history. We applaud you for your unwavering passion and enthusiasm for our island-wide community event and for raising funds to help strengthen Bermuda’s families. Thank you!
Special thanks to the award winners who contributed in so many ways to the success of our 2016 XL Catlin End-to-End event:
Despite blustery weather and heavy rain, the XL Catlin End-to-End went ahead with great spirit. In the early deluge, our teams of volunteers and patrons waited anxiously to see if anyone would show up. And they sure did - we estimate that 1,500 people completed the walk despite the downpours! And the community warmth of the End-to-End seemed to double up despite the challenges, delivering on the End-to-End's credo of "Good Cause, Great Fun!"
