News Press Release

DOCTORS HOSPITAL DONATES FUNDING, MEDICAL STAFF TEAM, AMBULANCE AND VOLUNTEER ASSISTANCE TO SUNSHINE INSURANCE MARATHON BAHAMAS
Dated of posted : 2011-01-11

Given the fact that we work and live in such beautiful surroundings everyday, we tend to take for granted the reasons millions of tourist visit our shores each year. The Sunshine Insurance Marathon Bahamas road race next weekend is set to stage sports tourism at its best with a unique marathon that is ‘rich in culture and surrounded by panoramic views of the ocean, flora and island life.’ 
 
With all proceeds from the race being donated to The Cancer Society of the Bahamas, The Sister Sister Breast Cancer organization, the Breast Cancer Institute, and the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Marathon Bahamas and the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure will significantly impact the health of Bahamians in the areas of breast cancer and women’s health issues. In addition, it benefits our tourism market, with hundreds of runners and their families travelling to the Bahamas to participate.  Susan G. Komen is the global leader of the breast cancer movement and the world’s largest network of breast cancer survivors and activists.
 
Marathon Bahamas will bring together runners and walkers from around the world, including club runners, national standard runners, tourist runners, charity runners, and elite runners to experience the Bahamas. Presently, hundreds of participants have already registered from across the globe as well as locally. 
 
At the center of this weekend of events is a marathon, half marathon, a relay, the 5K Bahamas Race for a Cure, and an Expo which is open to the public featuring seminars, free screenings, healthy lifestyle demonstrations, products and product sampling, the latest in running gear, a large selection of ‘official’ Marathon Bahamas merchandize, food and nutritional items.
 
To coordinate an exciting weekend event of this caliber and magnitude, the Board of Directors for Marathon Bahamas and its major sponsor, Sunshine Insurance, called on corporate partners to assist.  Doctors Hospital, whose second year involvement displays their serious commitment to the Bahamian community and support of the fight against Breast Cancer, recently presented Marathon Bahamas with a check to assist with organizational expenses. 
 
At the recent check presentation, Mr. Brian Moodie, President of Sunshine Insurance Marathon Bahamas announced the company’s pleasure with Doctors Hospital’s continued commitment to health in the Bahamas and support of Marathon Bahamas. “Sunshine Insurance Marathon Bahamas is very appreciative of the support Doctors Hospital continues to give to this event. This support is not only financial, but also logistical in the form of medical expertise, to ensure the safety of our participants - our number one priority.”
 
As the leading healthcare provider in the country, the organizers are pleased to note that Doctors Hospital will be responsible for the core Medical Team for Marathon Bahamas under the leadership of Dr. Beverton Moxey, and Dr. Kathryn deSouza, consultant physicians at Doctors Hospital. The Hospital will be providing medical teams at each medical station, and medical supplies, assisting with first aid care along the race route as well as supplying medical volunteers from the Hospital and ambulance services.
 
With a 6 a.m. start on the oceanfront, runners will travel east through historic downtown Nassau into the sunrise, over the Bridge to Paradise Island, returning onto Shirley Street before enjoying the northern shore tour of Cable Beach and returning to finish at Arawak Cay, the most beautiful route any runner could ask for! Fluid and entertainment stations are set up throughout the length of the course—as are spectator/cheering stations. Applications and registration is available at Sunshine Insurance offices on Shirley Street and Blue Hill Road, or for more information visit www.marathonbahamas.com
 
Participants and spectators are encouraged not to miss this exciting event. The Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure is an opportunity for people of all ages to participate in the fun run walk and celebrate survivorship, remember those we have lost to the disease and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. By participating in this event, you will raise awareness about a health issue that affects thousands of women in The Bahamas and help make a difference in how breast cancer is understood, diagnosed and treated. One hundred percent of the money raised by the Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure will remain in The Bahamas to fund breast cancer programs and research.

Sunshine Insurance Marathon Bahamas, the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure and Doctors Hospital encourages teams from all walks of life including corporate Bahamas, religious organizations, families and friends to support this worthy cause and participate in the events.
