VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- Runners in the 2nd leg of the 2016 Dive BVI 5K series displayed both a competitive and compassionate heart on Saturday February 27, 2016.

Some $800 was raised through donations for new appliances for the Virgin Gorda Elderly Home. Staying true to its promise, Dive BVI matched the donations to bring the amount to $1600.

“Together, we raised $800 for new appliances at the Virgin Gorda Elderly Home! Dive BVI will match that for a total of $1600 to our wonderful residents of the home,” an elated Casey McNutt of Dive BVI stated.

Meanwhile, Reuben J. A. Stoby virtually sealed the series when he took a comfortable win in 19:08, well below his best time of 18:18 on that course.

“It was just to win today, not about a fast time,” Stoby said.

Julius Farley took second in 19:22, and James Ramproshod 20:12 third.

Winning for ladies was Rebecca Knight in 26:47. Lindsay Fogarty took second in 29:13 and Lucy Smith third in 29:13.
