In an effort to help offset expenses for the CARIFTA Games Track and Field team destined for The Bahamas, members of the Guyana Community of Service (GCS) will be hosting fundraising activities today at Payless Variety Store on Wellington Street and the Giftland Mall at Pattensen.
Activities start at Payless at 10:30hrs and three hours later at the popular shopping edifice.
Some 18 athletes have been named to represent the Golden Arrowhead at the 47th CARIFTA Games scheduled for Easter weekend in The Bahamas.
The Bahamas is set to host the 2018 CARIFTA Games from March 30 to April 2 at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.
This year’s CARIFTA Games will see 500 athletes from 26 countries competing while 400 volunteers and about 150 Bahamian and international officials will officiate. It is the premier track and field junior competition in the region.
