NASSAU, The Bahamas, March 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, warm hospitality and vibrant culture, The Bahamas stands as a singular destination in its own right.

    Bahamas Hope Challenge (BHC), a registered Charity in The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, was formally constituted in 2006 as Ride for Hope Bahamas. The organization’s flagship fundraiser is “The Bahamas Hope Challenge”, which is not a race but a gathering of people who cycle, run, or walk distances of their own choosing and at their own pace — raising money from family members, friends, and colleagues as they do. The event takes place in the beautiful settlement of Governor’s Harbour on the historic island of Eleuthera. The required fundraising minimum for adults is $500 and $250 for youth. It’s all for the greater good of helping fellow Bahamians fight cancer and increase their survivorship.
