On Saturday May 28, MOWY Fitness hosted their 2nd Great Abaco Trash-A-Thon, an event created to help clean up the islands and to promote exercise. With over 30 participants and three teams, the Trash-A-Thon was a success.
Between the teams in Hope Town, Man-O-War, and Marsh Harbour over 100 bags of garbage were collected.
Teams raised money for their favorite charity by receiving donations or pledges per bag of garbage collected. The team who raises the most money wins.
Thanks to the Abaco Inn for sponsoring the event and providing ice cream for the champions.
The Trash Cannibals from Man-O-War Cay representing MOWY Fitness raised $1,500 and collected 30 bags of trash. Coming in second place were the Gym Class Heroes representing the Abaco Cancer Society raising $900 with 62 bags of garbage. The Hope Town School participated and collected 12 bags of garbage.
MOWY Fitness thanks all who helped at the event. Abaco is cleaner because of their efforts. It is important for tourism to keep our islands pristine.
If you could not make the Great Abaco Trash-A-Thon this year, no problem, get involved next time and help keep Abaco clean.
