The 2023 Convex End-to-End presented five charities with grants during an awards ceremony at Hamilton Princess to celebrate participants' fundraising efforts and support from the event's sponsors.
A spokesperson said, "Bermuda Zoological Society [BZS], The Eliza DoLittle Society and Vision Bermuda all received $50,000 grants. Gina Spence Productions and the Skills Development Programme each received $25,000. Bermuda High School was the recipient of $15,000 after winning the 2023 Deloitte School Award thanks to its students' fundraising efforts."
Anne Mello, Chair of the End-to-End, said: "We are thrilled with the turnout and support for this year's event, we had 2,500 participants from sailors and rowers to walkers and cyclists.
"Thanks to their fundraising efforts and the support of our sponsors we were able to donate $215,000 to local charities that are doing incredibly important work in our community.
"We would like to recognise and thank our sponsors for their exceptional support, without title sponsor Convex and platinum sponsors Butterfield and Deloitte the End-to-End would not be possible."
Stephen Catlin, Chair, Convex, added: "The 2023 Convex End-to-End was yet again an enormously enjoyable experience. We saw the whole island come together, putting on a show of its generosity and community spirit. My gratitude goes out to all the volunteers, donors, and participants whose contributions make it possible for many great initiatives to flourish."
