The Valley, Anguilla, August 21, 2017 – The Young Hustlers – a group of 20 plus young males from throughout the island, has teamed up CIBC FirstCaribbean’s Anguilla branch and the Anguilla Cancer Society to raise funds to help in the fight against cancer.
The group, with assistance from CIBC FirstCaribbean is committing all funds raised from an upcoming event to go to the Anguilla Cancer Society.
“This will be the first major charitable event by the group since its inception even though we have been quietly assisting with several other community projects and charities including the Arijah Children Foundation,” Founder and Key Organizer of the Young Hustlers Oshari Tomlinson told CIBC FirstCaribbean Country Head, Ms Marie Rey.
“We are committed to stamping out the separation of east against west by bringing the communities together especially our young males,” Oshari told Ms Rey. “We are quite happy to be partnering with CIBC FirstCaribbean to help raise funds and to be joining the Walk For The Cure on Saturday 7th October, 2017,”.
The Young Hustlers will be designing custom made tie-dye T-Shirts that will go on sale at US$25.00 each from in early September.
“We at CIBC FirstCaribbean are excited to have the Young Hustlers join the Walk For The Cure this year. Cancer does not only affect middle aged and old people; it affects persons of all ages,” Ms Rey said.
“We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Young Hustlers and we also welcome any other groups in the community who are willing to join the fight against cancer. Every dollar counts,” Ms Rey said.
CIBC First Caribbean is a major supporter of regional cancer organizations in the fight against cancer.
The walk, benefiting cancer organizations in Anguilla and throughout the region, attracted over 20,000 participants in 17 countries in which the bank operates last year, in a unified demonstration of their commitment to assist those affected by cancer.
In Anguilla this year, hundreds are expected to take to the streets to demonstrate their support for the efforts of CIBC FirstCaribbean and the Anguilla Cancer Society in their effort to raise funds to assist persons affected by cancer.
The walk is also held to coincide with the Canadian Cancer Society’s CIBC Run for the Cure sponsored by the bank’s parent company, CIBC.
CIBC has been supporting this event for more than 20 years, donating millions to breast cancer research in Canada.
The CIBC FirstCaribbean Walk for the Cure is now in its sixth year.
