The sun came out for the second annual Hope Town Turtle Trot, a 5K fun run/walk which benefited Friends of the Environment’s marine conservation and education programs. The event was presented by H.G. Christie and sponsored by Hope Town Inn and Marina, Hummingbird Art Gallery and the Abaco Tourism Office.
Just before daybreak on Oct. 19, a circle of people attired in pink and white T-shirts clasped hands together in prayer with Rev. Willish Johnson before the start of the 4th Monica Adderley Annual Fun, Run & Walk at 6:30 a.m. As the 77 registered participants walked briskly to the starting line, they were given road safety instructions by mobile police officers on the scene. The runners took the lead, while those who opted to walk trailed behind in the cool of the morning.
