Two female chefs reeled in more than $10,000 for two charitable organisations — including the Family Support Network (FSN) on Tortola — via a marathon held aboard two chartered catamarans in the neighbouring St Thomas, US Virgin Islands on Sunday.
“It was really tough, but we did it. So far we have raised $10,0014,” event organiser Hannah Angel — a chef aboard Ohana of the Regency Yacht Vacations told BVI News on Tuesday.
She along with one other chef Laura Kurton walked a little more than 26 miles on their respective charter vessels on Sunday, April 26.
The duo commenced at 5 am with Kurton completing her marathon in six and a half hours and Angel, completing hers in seven hours and 45 minutes.
Kurton said, persons, can still donate to the cause up to Monday when the PayPal account will be closed.
After the closing, half of the proceeds will be delivered to the FSN and the other half to the Family Resource Centre in St Thomas.
Angel previously told BVI News she became inspired to do the event after seeing a man conclude a social media marathon from his tiny backyard while on lockdown in the United Kingdom.
