Scotiabank signs on as silver sponsor of Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend
Scotiabank is a silver, corporate partner for the Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend 2018. The bank has supported the annual event, inclusive of Marathon Bahamas and the Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure, since its inception.
In 2013, Scotiabank became the lead partner for the Student Run Marathon Bahamas initiative which provides an opportunity for distance running student athletes to participate in the relay component of Marathon Bahamas.
“We are excited to continue our sponsorship of the race weekend, particularly the Student Run which aligns with our global social responsibility platform focusing on young people in the community,” said Nakera Symonette, Senior Manager of Marketing and Public Relations at Scotiabank. “Marathon Bahamas and the 5K Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure make significant contributions to local non-profit organizations in the fight against cancer while boosting tourism and the local economy. This is a productive partnership that makes us proud.”
Race weekend is scheduled for this coming Saturday and Sunday, January 13 and 14, at the northern tip of New Providence.
“Our employee volunteers look forward to Komen each year,” said Maxine Seymour, Manager of Sponsorships and Philanthropy at Scotiabank. “Some of us will be participating in the race while others will be at the race village to greet participants as they cross the finish line on Paradise Island. We will be at the finish line to cheer on the student athletes on Sunday as well,” Seymour continued.
Hundreds of runners have signed up for the Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend 2018.
