Runners from around The Bahamas and the world will take part in the 2020 Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend on Jan. 18-19. The Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC) will return as a proud gold sponsor for the eighth consecutive year to hydrate runners with Dasani water during the two-day event.
In addition to providing Dasani still water for all of the Susan G. Komen 5K participants, as well as the Marathon Bahamas runners, CBC will also serve up the new Dasani Sparkling lime, berry and white peach flavors. A number of CBC’s team members will also be on hand to help distribute water to the thousands of runners, walkers and joggers who will take part.
“We are happy to be back on board as a gold sponsor for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k and Marathon Bahamas,” said Nikia Wells, CBC communications marketing manager.
“We cannot believe that it has been eight years already since we started supporting the races, but it is always exciting to see so many people, from all fitness levels, age groups and backgrounds, taking part, raising funding for breast cancer
awareness and pushing themselves on race day. We are also proud to be able to take part in an event that honors and celebrates breast cancer fighters and survivors.”
Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend organizers noted that they were extremely happy to have CBC and Dasani back as a gold sponsor for the race weekend. They added that with any athletic event in The Bahamas, especially one on the scale of the race weekend, it is vital to keep participants hydrated.
Over the past several years, CBC has supported a number of Bahamian race and athletics events, around the country, including the Bahamas Half Marathon, CARIFTA, Outrun Hunger, CIBC Walk for the Cure, the Atlantic Medical Fun Run Walk, Run for Pompey and the upcoming Powerade Potcakeman Triathlon on March 29.
