Odyssey Aviation Bahamas sponsors Ride for Hope

Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas

ODYSSEY AVIATION BAHAMAS Presenting Sponsor of “The Ride For Hope” 2011

Since the initial ‘Ride for Hope’ event in 2005, Odyssey Aviation has been a major supporter, and the RFH has become, the primary charity, which we intend to support in 2011
We consider it a privilege, to be the first company representing the new category of ‘Presenting Sponsor’. Our participation to the RFH since its inception is well documented; our team has provided assistance and support receiving and loading bikes into shipping containers at our facility at the airport, in addition to helping with unloading and loading of containers at the event site. Over the prior six years, our entire organization has looked forward to this inspiring and uplifting occasion.
We hope that other companies will also get involved, not only is it great fun! It’s a fantastic way to build teamwork, connect and forge stronger relationships with employees, customers and friends. In addition, it helps us to bond with our own families and the wider Bahamian community, all whilst actively saving lives and consequently, benefiting us all!

Of course the most compelling reason is we know ALL of the funds raised go to the fight against cancer in the Bahamas!!

The funds raised are actively helping those fighting cancer and not just the patients, and their families, but also supporting organizations in the vital early detection & screening programs; it’s also funding the important research. This approach is attacking this dreadful disease from all directions, and without a doubt consequently providing hope to many Bahamians lives.
