NIB's 50th Anniversary series of Holistically Balanced - Spiritually, Mentally, Physically and Financially events kicked off with a 3.5 mile Fun, Run / Walk. Walkers and runners of all ages converged at NIB's Headquarters, on Saturday January 27, 2024 for friendly competition, health talks, financial literacy education, demonstrations and more.

The energetic Caribbean Sweat Fitness instructor Comby jump-started the morning activities with a pre-race warmup. Olympic Champion and award-winning author Pauline Davis-Thompson called the start of the race. Awards were presented to male and female participants in six categories. Overall, the first competitor to cross the finish line was Mr. Anthony Saunders in the 31-40 male runner category. The Royal Bahamas Police Force Cadets won the award for entering the most participants.
