Dara Robinson will be holding his 3rd annual Ride for Hunger on Sunday, July 27. According to Robinson, the ride is organized to raise funds for his feeding program where he feeds almost 50 children in Belize City.

The ride is scheduled to start at 6:30 from in front of SMART on the Philip Goldson Highway making its way to the Burrell Boom road and returning back to Belize City from the Boom road junction with the George Price Highway in Hattieville and then back to the Philip Goldson Highway in front of SMART. There will be refreshments and music will be available up to midday.

Riders who will be participating should cover a $5.00 registration fee and all riders are asked to wear a helmet. Robinson says that all riders will be provided with a raffle ticket as well as servicing and healthy snacks and drinks while they participate in the ride. Those who are unable to make it on time to pay for the registration can do so at the end of the ride. For persons who do not wish to ride but want to contribute they can do so by providing non-perishable items, school supplies or cash.

In its 3rd year running, the Ride for Hunger is Dara Robinson’s fund raising initiative which he says is to also raise awareness to hunger not only in Belize but worldwide.

Along with the ride, Dara also holds concerts and on August 3rd he will hold his 7th annual Tribute to Lucky Dube at the Birds isle from 4p.m. to Midnight. Dara says he uses reggae as a means of fundraising since he is a lover of the music and in Lucky Dube’s case it comes with a message. This year’s theme for his concert is “Celebrate Life.” He says Belizeans, in particular young men, should take time out to look at ourselves and realize that without life we are nothing. He asks the youths to stop the senseless killing. “Every time you kill someone you leave families destroyed and children hungry,” he added.

Finally Dara thanked all those persons who have contributed to his feeding program and who have donated in any way like Hon. Patrick Faber, business houses and the people who donate small contributions. He added that anyone who wishesto assist him can do so by calling him at 623-3662.
