BVI team 54Strong competes in Miami Marathon to benefit local charities
On a cool, rain-soaked Sunday morning dawn in late January, O’Neal Webster’s Managing Partner Vanessa King stepped to the starting line alongside the British Virgin Islands team “54Strong” and 23,000 other runners who had gathered in Miami to compete in the city’s annual signature event, the Miami Marathon and Half-Marathon race. King and her teammates were running to raise much-needed funds for local BVI charities following the devastation left behind by hurricanes Irma and Maria. In keeping with the spirit of the run, O’Neal Webster donated ‘#BVI strong’ wristbands to each member of the 54Strong team. The wristbands were sold by the Rotary Club of Tortola to raise funds for their recovery efforts.
