IMG_20161021_124215Hi Guys,
Greet­ings to you all Ms. Sade Jones here report­ing live from the Vol­un­teer Front of CARIFIN GAMES 2017. As the CARIFIN 2016 Spirit of The Games Win­ner, it brings me no greater joy than to be on the serv­ing end of the spec­trum this year. It was a truly hum­bling expe­ri­ence last year com­pet­ing and being vic­to­ri­ous in the face of per­sonal adver­sity, the games unearthed a level of strength and endurance that seem­ingly lay dor­mant, a sleep­ing giant as it were.

Alas! My let­ter to you comes on the cusp of this great tour­na­ment. I implore you my Glad­i­a­tors, as in days of old in the great Colos­seum in Rome that this year revives the Spirit of a Golden Era long for­got­ten. An era marked by fierce com­pe­ti­tion, pas­sion for sport, chivalry, valor and above all honor….in other words let’s get out there and have some Fun!!! My hope for you is sim­ply this: that you be trans­formed, that you grow, that you forge long last­ing bonds of broth­er­hood not so eas­ily bro­ken by the mere con­clu­sion of these games. Beloved in clos­ing, in the great words of one of my philo­soph­i­cal coun­ter­parts LET THE GAMES BEGIN…………

Meet Vic­tra!

Hi, my name is Vic­tra and I am excited to be mem­ber of the Car­iFin Vol­un­teer Pro­gram for 2017.

I enjoy all types of sports and phys­i­cal activ­i­ties and I believe that when you work­out, you should have fun, that’s why I’m excited about the Car­iFin games as it brings that fun and friendly touch com­pe­ti­tion among those of the finan­cial sec­tor, while they workout!!

I believe that phys­i­cal fit­ness is impor­tant in your every­day life and I encour­age many peo­ple as I can to make exer­cise a part of their daily rou­tine. I also enjoy see­ing the changes in indi­vid­u­als as they pur­sue their fit­ness goals as this moti­vates them to con­tinue on their journey.
I look for­ward to work­ing with this year’s team of vol­un­teers and engag­ing in the fun with my peers!!

Planning-for-the-games-has-started2

 

Hi every­one, just let­ting you know that the action has started. We had our 1st meet­ing and the teams are on board. Com­ing back for 2017 are RBL, RBC, JMMB Group, Sco­tia­bank, First Cit­i­zens, Unit Trust, CBTT, Guardian Group, Sagi­cor and TATIL Finan­cial Group.

How­ever, we are await­ing responses from a few other teams.

First on the list of things to deal with is the reg­is­tra­tion process. We are work­ing on the Race Ros­ter and a meet­ing is planned for early next week to deal with some of the things that can make the expe­ri­ence of reg­is­ter­ing for the games flow more smoothly.

We are look­ing at the 1st of April for the Torch Relay, a move from the 25th of March that we first envisioned.

So we are off and ready to meet with the vol­un­teers and teams to put the games together. So if you want to vol­un­teer to play a part in 2017 games, please con­tact us at: admin@funfitnessfriendship.com

In the sub­ject line — “Car­iFin Games 2017″
