To get to St Marys Junction, Freeport for 2am to start a 26.2 mile walk to Whitehall, Queens Park Savannah for a journey that would take between 6 to 8 hours for a cause and for youth and young people who may pass you straight in person and never recognise or acknowledge you or know you exist, is an act of unselfish commitment, duty and patriotism- For the Love of T&T- TeamTTO.
A 26.2 mile journey that was a test of character and resolve but also a journey aimed at helping youth and young people who dream of achieving and winning an Olympic Gold medal.
