Scotiabank has joined hands with Marathon Bahamas as a Corporate Partner for the second annual Marathon Bahamas event. As a Silver Partner, Scotiabank has donated fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) to support this event which benefits the fight against cancer in The Bahamas and The Princess Margaret Hospital. The event-filled weekend is taking place this weekend, January 15 – 16, 2011.
Through a partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, Marathon Bahamas has been extended from a one-day marathon to a weekend of events to include the Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure scheduled for Saturday, January 15, 2011. All funds raised from the Race for the Cure as part of the Marathon Bahamas 2011 weekend will benefit the fight against breast cancer programs in The Bahamas.
Scotiabank Managing Director, Barry Malcolm, noted, “Supporting the fight against cancer in The Bahamas is a priority for Scotiabank and we are proud to have a Scotiabank team participating in Saturday’s race. Our employees are excited about partnering for such a worthy cause.”
