Banks DIH Limited is partnering with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in support of the 12th annual CARICOM 10K athletic road race slated for Sunday.
The local beverage company made a donation of its branded Rainforest Water for the event, which will attract a large field of athletes from Guyana and across the Caribbean region.
The presentation was made during a simple ceremony at Thirst Park where Dr. Douglas Slater, Assistant Secretary General of Human and Social Development of CARICOM Secretariat, received the donation from Rain Forest Water Brand Manager Clive Pellew.
