The Committee of Healthy Reef, Healthy People Swim Challenge would like to inform the public that the swim challenge, scheduled to commence today, March 23, 2012, was postponed due to unfavorable weather conditions.
Gerry Badillo and Eric Donis informed Ambergris Today that this decision will give many people the chance to help, assist and the opportunity to join them on the challenge on the official day. They also stated that a meeting was held with the Hol Chan Marine Reserve committee and the brilliant idea arose for the Swim Challenge to be proudly added to their calendar of events for Reef Week (Reef Week dates will be announced later in April).
Gerry Badillo stated, “The Swim Challenge was ready to take full throttle and the support has been great from people in San Pedro, Caye Caulker and Belize City. We extend a huge thank you to everybody who is helping and supporting us. Eric and I, extend an invitation to all swimmers, athletes and businesses to join, support and help us in accomplishing this journey. Let’s do it and be proud for being blessed in having the second largest Barrier Reef in the world & surrounded by amazing people. “
