Pump it Up Launch 2023

PR – Guardian General Insurance (OECS) Limited (GGIOL) has once again collaborated with Grenada  Co-operative Bank Limited (GCBL) and six other corporate partners as a Renaissance level  benefactor to raise funds toward the re-establishment of the Carlton Home under the bank’s  Pump it Up! Family Fun Walk brand. GGIOL has been involved in this initiative since 2017, and  this year’s event marks the first to be hosted since 2019 due to the pandemic. 

This healthy lifestyle initiative is in line with Guardian Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) pillar of health and wellness by supporting programmes created and focused on promoting  preventative care. GGIOL is dedicated to promoting the holistic well-being of the anticipated  4,000-plus attendees for this year’s event as we aim to encourage investment in various facets of  wellness, including physical, mental, emotional, and social health. 

During the recent press launch at the Coyaba Beach Resort to officially kick-off the 2023 Pump  it Up! Family Fun Walk, Mr. Nigel Adams – Managing Director, GGIOL expressed his delight in  reaffirming the company’s partnership with Grenada Co-operative Bank to raise funds for this  worthy cause. Adams reiterated that Guardian General Insurance (OECS) Limited is dedicated to  supporting initiatives that encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle amongst our Caribbean  people. He further stated that Guardian General applauds the ongoing efforts of the bank in  identifying the Carlton Home as a key project. 

Managing Director, Grenada Co-operative Bank Limited, Mr. Larry Lawrence reiterated that “The  Management of Grenada Co-operative Bank Limited expresses sincere thanks to the Benefactors  for their generous contributions and the general public for their charitable support as we journey  towards the re-establishment of the Carlton Home.”

Mr. Kevin Andall, Permanent Secretary for Wellness and Religious Affairs highlighted that this  approach to health is part of the national transformation agenda and one of the key initiatives is  the commissioning of National Wellness Centres of which the Carlton Home Project will be the  first of these under the Government of Grenada’s National Wellness Programme. 

As part of its commitment to the community, Guardian General will invest a further XCD$15,000  toward the initiative. By 2024, GCBL and its benefactors aim to raise XCD$500,000 in funds for  the revitalisation of the Carlton Home, an institution dedicated to caring for and rehabilitating  individuals with alcohol and substance abuse addictions. 

Pump it Up! Family Fun Walk will take place in Carriacou on Sunday, March 26th, and in Grenada  on Sunday, April 23rd, 2023.
