“Dara” Robinson Sets Off on Ride for Hunger

Popular Belizean philanthropist Dara Robinson is preparing once again for the school year ahead by hosting the sixth annual Ride for Hunger.  The event takes place this Sunday where the ride departs from the Marion Jones Sporting Complex at six o’clock in the morning.  This afternoon, Dara stopped by our office to make a special appeal to you.  He wants you to join him this weekend by registering for the Boom/Hattieville ride.  All monies and proceeds will go towards Dara’s feeding program.
