Our CariFin Launch/Torch Relay is schedule to take place on Saturday, April 11 2015 at 7:00 a.m. and we cordially invite you to attend this event which will formally launch the 23rd edition of the CariFin Games.
The Torch Run was essentially a marathon beginning at the main organization in the financial sector, Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, and ending at Republic Bank, Couva. Organizations carried the torch along various legs of the run to pass in front of their branches.
To achieve all our objectives we have changed the format as detailed below:
- The event will start at 7:00 a.m. with an approximate end time of 9:30 a.m. in total.
- The start and end is at the paved area in the savannah opposite the TGI Fridays.
- It is important to emphasize that this is not a race and the idea is for every organization to begin and end together.
- We will make one (1) lap around the Queens Park Savannah with each team getting an opportunity to carry the torch.
- The team starting as Team 1 will have the torch and at a pre-determined location will handover to Team 2 until all teams have carried the torch; all teams beginning together and ending together, showing their commitment to Fun, Fitness and Friendship
Our agenda for the event is as follows:
- Start time 7:00 a.m.
- National Anthem
- Opening Prayer and Welcome
- Welcome Address
- Announcements by MC
- Commencement of Torch Relay
- Refreshments following Torch Relay
- Approximate end time 9:30 a.m.
The participating teams are CITI, Eastern Credit Union, First Citizens, Guardian Group, IBL, RBC, RBL, Sagicor, Scotia Bank and Unit Trust.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
