Meet Victra!

Hi, my name is Victra and I am excited to be a 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!!







Wayne-Roberts“2015 was the first year we invited volunteers to CariFin Games and after seeing the difference they made and the value they brought to changing the face of the games we made a clarion call to them again in 2016.

Last year being the landmark 25th anniversary of the Games many memorable moments we have enjoyed when the ideas, creativity, resourcefulness and sacrifice of the volunteer either saved the day, improved a situation or changed something totally around for the better.

Having volunteers in the Games before the actual event meant they were involved in the planning, the brain storming and contributing to the creativity and innovation that the 25th anniversary has become known for.
For the 25th anniversary we introduced a number of things to coincide with the landmark achievement or simply to improve on the experience and it was the resources within the volunteer rank that formed and shaped them into fruition.

I clearly remember when planning the route for the torch relay and it was a volunteer that brought resources to bear on the project to give us the 1st route that was graphically represented on a map.

The volunteer t-shirt colour for 2016 was pink and seeing the numbers out from the 1st event – The Torch Relay – gave that sense of support and management to Games and brought out a renewed spark to our core expression – “Fun, Fitness & Friendship.”

Planning for the final event at Sevilla Golf Course it was a volunteer again standing in the gap for the team and asking if we had a standby generator for the Games and the answer was no. On her insistence we prudently put same in place. Again intuition and foresight saving the day as the location electricity went 2 hours into the proceedings.

Long hours, as we huddle over our laptop in meetings via Google Hangout as we shared screens and listened to each other’s points of view as we made and shaped tasks in the form and fashion we wanted.

IMG_9251Every successful event or venture was filled with joy and celebration for the volunteers as we all worked as a team and pulled together to make CariFin Games 2016 yet another success and taking the Games to higher level, lifting the expectation of the participants, teams and sponsors.

In 2017 we are again making that call to all who enjoy giving back to their community via volunteering or those who want to for probably the first time experience what it is to volunteer for a sporting event.”
