Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 27th, 2021 (ZIZ News) The Reach For Recovery Breast Cancer Support Group in collaboration with the St. Kitts and Nevis Defence Force will host their Cycling With Courage and Purpose Biking Event on Sunday.
President of the Support Group, Patricia Farrell explained that the event is in commemoration of the 19th year anniversary of the group and World Cancer day.
She also spoke of how the partnership with the Defence Force came about.
In February-this month, the group celebrated 19 years of existence and February 4th was actually World Cancer Day so we normally look at the events that’s happening for world cancer day and we recognize that this year the theme for their big cycling event was “Cycling with Purpose”, so we said wow that’s good everybody else does other things we can do a cycling event and then we heard about the Defence Force who normally does a biking event which started 19 years ago as well so we said we could partner and then we found that their theme is usually “Cycling with Courage so we joined the two and we said “Cycling with Courage and Purpose.”
Farrell said persons will need to bring their own bikes and if there any issues along the way there will be roadside maintenance assist.
She explained that the event will start at the Defence Force Camp with five stops along the route back to Basseterre.
“We’re starting at the Defence Force Camp and traveling eastwards with five stops, one stop is in Cayon, second one is in Mansion, then we move to St. Pauls, Sandy Point, Old Road, back to Basseterre.”
Farrell urged that persons must wear a helmet.
The event starts at 6am.
