Guardian Group Presents Over TT$400,000.00 In SHINE Proceeds To 31 Children’s Charities

Guardian Group SHINE (Securing Hope for Those In Need) was the 5K and 10K Charity Walk and Run held on Saturday November 24, 2018 at the Nelson Mandela Park, St. Clair. This charity event is Guardian Group’s flagship charity fundraiser in Trinidad and Tobago and attracted registration of approximately 5200 runners and walkers. The dual distances within one event sought to engage both the serious athletes and leisure walkers/runners and satisfied participants’ personal desire to give back to the less fortunate and Guardian Group’s objective of making a meaningful contribution to children’s charities. The event also raised public awareness and engagement in a family and fun-based Health and Wellness event which is central to Guardian Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility.  

Guardian Group’s SHINE 2018 was a partnership with One Caribbean Media Limited and SM Jaleel (OASIS) and C&W Business.
