WEDNESDAY, MAY 16: The islands’ pharmacists will join forces to run the May 24 half marathon to raise money for charity.
A total of 28 pharmacists from across the island will take part in the event in six teams of four, while a further four runners will complete the entire course on their own.
All the money raised by the team will go towards the Bermuda Diabetic Association and will be used to help to build a medical clinic in Haiti.
It is the first time that all the pharmacists in Bermuda have come together to take part in the half marathon.
Bernie O’Reilly, who manages the Dockyard Pharmacy, told the Sun: “We have a very multi-national team.
“There are pharmacists from across the world including the UK, Ghana, America, Jamaica and South Africa.
“We also have Norbert Seymour as part of the team and he is in his 60s and this will be the 17th time he has taken part in the event.
“There is a lot of excitement amongst the group.
“It has also been a chance for pharmacists from different ends of the island to meet up and be part of the same project.
“We are all really looking forward to the occasion.”
