Run for Pompey Postponed due to Hurricane Matthew - Oct 3, 2016 - 5:18:42 PM

The second annual Run for Pompey set for Georgetown, Exuma on October 8 has been postponed due to the expected passing of Hurricane Matthew this week.

“Hurricane Matthew is expected to travel through The Bahamas and impact islands and cays throughout the archipelago over the next four days,” said Jeff Todd, race founder and Director of Communications for GIV Bahamas. “Our first thought is with the people of The Bahamas, many of whom are still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Joaquin last year.

We are hopeful that damage to the islands will be minimal and are encouraging everyone to prepare and keep themselves safe.”

Hope’s High Hopes for Athletes and Animals at Potcakeman Triathlon - Sep 21, 2016 - 4:02:36 AM

Michelle Hope has swum, cycled and run her way through 10 triathlons but the 5’8’ mother of two will make history when she enters the Potcakeman Triathlon – she’ll be the first competitor in the popular event ever to compete in athletic gear provided by the official trade association dedicated to pet wellness, the Pet Food Institute (PFI).

Hope, a civil, structural and environmental engineer, won the right to have the triathlon outfit designed especially for her by winning the PFI’s Facebook contest answering the question. “Tell us why nutrition is important for pets.” She also had to demonstrate a passion for pets.

              “If I didn’t have a stream of bad luck, I’d have no luck at all, so I’m really excited about this because I already feel like a winner,” says Hope. “I’m really grateful to the Pet Food Institute.  I think what PFI is doing is very important for the pets of the Bahamas”
