NASSAU, Bahamas  – Twenty-one Strides for Hope members will be traveling to The Bahamas to participate in the 8th annual Sunshine Insurance Marathon Bahamas (SIMB).
   
The event will be held on Sunday, January 15th beginning at Junkanoo Beach.
Strides for Hope is a charity marathon training team. Participants raise money for the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Abor (CSC).

In exchange, participants receive a training program to help them prepare to participate in a half-marathon.  

Members of the Strides for Hope team participate in honour or memory of someone they know who has been touched by cancer or participate to celebrate their survivorship.

The CSC’s Strides for Hope Charity Marathon Training team has been around for 11 years and although the members of the team change year-to-year, the camaraderie of like-minded people, who want to help raise funds to support individuals and families affected by cancer stays the same.

The Cancer Support Community is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free support, education and hope to people impacted by cancer. Through participation in professionally-led support groups, educational workshops, cooking classes, exercise programs, and stress management classes, people impacted by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope regardless of the stage of their disease.  

This year’s Strides for Hope team has gained local attention and a local radio host will be asking his listener to support one of the Strides for Hope Team Members.
