Finding the way for Fundraising
Olympian Jake Holden and Richard Clewes survey the route for Find 52x2 St. Lucia in January 2016. The duo were joined by St. Lucian Olympic athletes and members of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force.

A road is a song, a poem, a movie, an adventure. It's hope and optimism, and inquisitiveness.

The Angry Isle
Find 52 started in Grenada
52 miles gets you right around this small, beautiful island. Companions on the second day included: Philip Clift from Petite Anse Hotel, an enthusiastic young boy and one very fit dog named "Dodgy".

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.

ST. AUGUSTINE
Fundraising is an Uphill Battle
In 2015, I ran 52 miles in Grenada. Let me dismiss athletic motives; it so happens 52 miles gets you all the way around the island. I did it for money – $40,000 – all of which has gone to our charity. CTV National news ran the story on May 25, 2015.

All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

International Literacy Day 2016
Soufrière Primary ran a relay on September 8, 2016 to celebrate reading. The event was filmed as part of the "run-up" to our Find 52 Thousand campaign. From July 3-7, 2017, students from grade 3-12 will run 1 mile segments right around St. Lucia.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Soirée en Blanc
A few years ago we ran a fun picnic that had 50-100 "flash mob" diners assemble in a secret Caledon location. The "Soiree en Blanc" fundraiser is being revived in St. Lucia, July 2017.

Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably.
