As we mentioned earlier, the Belize Protectors Team came back home today with good news on their performance and ranking in the Baker to Vegas Relay completion in the United States. Since they registered for the event last year, the association has been coming up with different ways in raising monies to finance the trip. Upon leaving Belize last week, they still had not come up with all the monies needed and they had to resort in taking out a loan for the event. The team came back with a win and is appealing to the public and private sectors to aid in their continuous fund raising efforts. Team Captain, David Jones and Coach Ian Gray spoke of the finances.
In addition to trying to cover this year’s expenses, the association is also looking to start garnering funds for next year’s relay competition.
