Autism Awareness
14Apr 2018

CTC’s crew love to support the community – not least because, over the decades since it’s been in operation, the local community really has supported them. That’s why several crew members from different departments in the Centre decided they wanted to give a bit back – by getting up before the crack of dawn one Saturday morning and joining hundreds of others for a Community 5K Autism Awareness walk/run.

The location was Fairhaven Golf Course and the starting point was at the clubhouse. The route took the walkers and runners up to the North Sound, and back again. Burns Rankin, Milton Johnson and Corrine Evans- Ebanks were among the CTC crew who were keen to show that they wanted to support all the programs for autistic children offered by the Lighthouse School, which the proceeds went to support.

Tour Manager Burns Rankin, said: “I support for Autism and anything for the Lighthouse School.” Retail Associate, Corrine Evans-Ebanks said:  “I do a lot of 5Ks and this is one of the main ones that I do because of the kids at the lighthouse school.” Milton Johnson, Manager at Schooners Bar and Grill said:  “When I heard about the cause – autistic kids, this is my first time doing a 5K walk/run and I said to myself, you know what? I want to be a part of this because of the whole reason and whole purpose behind it- whatever you can do for the kids.”
