The first annual St Martin Trails unity walk-a-thon enjoyed a rather large turn out on Sunday November 13th 2011.
Approximately 250 walkers made the 10 km trek from the Festival Village Philipsburg to the Home and Tools parking lot in Bellevue. Where a caribbean breakfast of bush tea, saltfish, Johnny cakes and eggs awaited the walkers at the finish line.
The Saint Martin Trails association congratulates all the Walkers who completed the 10 km.
11 donated prizes were given out "raffle style" as soon as the last walker arrived at Bellevue.
The association would take this opportunity to thank the volunteers from the Maternité Active Association, Sint Maarten Road Runners and the Sint Maarten Red Cross : your assistance was indeed invaluable.
