Seeking to raise awareness on cancer and show solidarity to support those battling cancer, Belize Fitness will be hosting its inaugural 5K Cancer Run on Saturday, July 1st. Belize Fitness is the newest gymnasium on Ambergris Caye, located in the Sancas Plaza,. Not only will the run be a celebration of life and life after cancer, but it will also honor all those who have lost the battle. Thus, individual runners and teams, along with walkers of all ages and skill levels, are invited to participate. For a $20 registration fee, runners/walkers will be provided with a number, a dry fit shirt, breakfast, and drinks.
Starting at 6AM, participants will make their way from the start point at Sancas Plaza, located directly in front of Tropic Air on Coconut Drive, along the designated route to Black Coral Street and Nurse Shark Street. They will then turn onto Pescador Drive, heading over the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge towards the North Ambergris Caye Police Booth, then returning to the starting point.
To add more thrill to the event, celebrity runners Nicole Amato and Holly Barker will be participating in the Run. Amato is from Ookala, Hawaii, and is an international model who enjoys running, yoga, ballet, and sports. Originally from Whitewood Saskatchewan, Canada, Barker now resides in Regina Saskatchewan, Canada, where she is pursuing her passion in fitness.
