Friday, July 24, 2015. BMG: Philanthropist Joel “Dara” Robinson continues his efforts to raise funds for his feeding program with a pair of events starting this weekend.
The 4th annual Ride for Hunger kicks off from Smart Headquarters at Mile 2 1/2 on the Philip Goldson Highway at 6:30 Saturday morning, riding a circuit through Ladyville, the Burrell Boom Road, Hattieville, the George Price Highway, and back into Belize City to finish at SMART.
Robinson is also remembering slain Amandala journalist Kareem Clarke who was a major supporter of the initiative. He had intended to ride Kareem’s bicycle personally during the ride but did not get permission, so instead he decorated the bicycle with Kareem’s picture. It will accompany the group of riders as a tribute and a song will be played in his honor afterward.
According to Robinson, this ride is to be supportive and not about the crowd, though over 300 attended last year’s ride and 175 registered. The fee is $10 but for those who cannot afford it, you are asked to bring your contribution – food, money, school supplies, etc.
Next week there will be the annual tribute to South African artist and gun violence victim Lucky Dube in Belize City.
Robinson’s program operates out of his home on Dunn Street in Belize City.
