Read a review of Dr. Lustig's book in the UK Daily Telegraph
Sunday March 10th saw the completion of another successful Lindos to Lindos 10k run/ 4 mile walk. Hosted by the Lindos group of companies and organized by Mid Atlantic Athletic Club (MAAC), the event saw over 1,000 competitors brave the elements on their way from Lindos Family Foods in Warwick to Lindos Market in Devonshire. Proceeds from the event go to the Bermuda Diabetes Association and this is the 7th year that the charity has been involved with this popular event. Besides all the numerous volunteers and business supporters, Validus Re should be recognized for their support again by covering the cost of T-shirts.
The Bermuda Diabetes Association is indeed thankful to all who participated or helped in any way, but a special thanks should go out to Lindos 'patriarch', Giorgio Zanol, who continues to support the Bermuda Diabetes Association and indeed, the local community in many ways.
