Bermuda’s Carifta Team will be representing the Island this weekend in Curacao. In advance of their departure, the Minister of National Security, Senator Jeffrey Baron and the Minister of Social Development and Sports, Nandi Outerbridge presented the Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA) with a donation of $25,000.
The grant was part of the Cash Back for Communities programme. Receiving the donation on behalf of the BNAA was its President Donna Raynor.
Today’s Cash Back donation will assist Bermuda’s athletes in covering expenses associated with the trip. In making the presentation today, both Ministers commended the team for their dedication and wished them success as they represent Bermuda at the Games.
The public will be aware that the BNAA announced its 2017 Carifta Team late last month, with 20 athletes set to represent the Island. As an added note, recently, the Carifta Team was also acknowledged by Premier Michael Dunkley who hosted the youngsters at a Camden reception earlier this month.
