Local Pre-Schoolers to Raise Funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®

Pre-schoolers from Tambearly School and The Meridian School will host a St. Jude Trike-A-Thon the week of January 24 in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. A tradition for more than 25 years, Trike-A-Thon is a fun, week-long curriculum for daycare centers and pre-schools. Children learn riding-toy safety lessons through a series of interactive stories from special characters, Bikewell Bear® and Pedals the Bunny®.  Dora the Explorer, Nick Jr.’s beloved character, appears in two television spots on Nick Jr. inviting children to participate in the program.

At the end of Trike-A-Thon week (Friday January 28) participating children will bring their trikes or riding-toys to the specially marked and supervised course at Sandyport to practice the safety lessons they have learned and raise funds for the hospital. The community can sponsor children in Trike-A-Thon by pledging an amount-per-lap the kids ride or make a one-time donation.

“Every child saved at St. Jude means children saved around the world – a direct result of cutting-edge research and treatment that set the standard in treating deadly childhood diseases,” said Alice Langford, Principal of Tambearly School.”  Through events like Trike-A-Thon, children in The Bahamas can support the St. Jude mission of finding cures and saving children everywhere.”

The Sandyport Trike-A-Thon event is sponsored by Sandals Foundation (the Philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International committed to improving education, communities and the environment throughout the Caribbean) Sandals Resorts International are the owners and operators of Sandals Royal Bahamian on Cable Beach in Nassau.

St. Jude depends on community-based fundraising programs like Trike-A-Thon. At St. Jude, families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.

In 2010, St. Jude was ranked the most trusted charity in the United States and was also named the top children’s cancer hospital in the 2010-11 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings published by U.S. News & World Report. For more information, go to

Marathon Bahamas 2011 – Road closures

Hello fellow Sandyport residents! I wanted to let all of you know what will be going on this Sunday, January 16th. An international marathon will be running right past Sandyport! You may have seen the signs on West Bay Street for Marathon Bahamas, and many of you may remember the inaugural event last year in February. It was a fantastic event last year, and this year should be even better.

We would love for you to come to W. Bay St., either at the front entrance of Sandyport or by the Club One (old Bally’s) gym to cheer for all of the runners. The management of Sandyport requests that you refrain from sitting or standing on the beautiful new grass that was just planted. You might consider bringing some folding chairs to sit on, and cowbells or any other noise makers you have around the house (leftover New Year’s noisemakers are perfect!). It is also fun for the runners to see you holding large signs with your own words of inspiration! The race begins at Arawak Cay, goes into town, and then comes west as far as Nirvana before turning back to finish at Arawak Cay, so those runners participating in the full marathon and the marathon relay will pass Sandyport twice. The event starts at 6am, and the runners should be running past Sandyport starting from about 7am. The race finishes at 1pm.

Just like last year, W. Bay St. will be closed to traffic. Officially the road is closed from midnight Saturday, but in actuality the road will be open for local residents. Even once the race is started, the road will be intermittently passable. You may have to wait a bit to get in and out of Sandyport if there is a large group of runners going by, so plan for this delay if you are trying to get somewhere such as church at a specific time. They will probably divert you off of W. Bay St. as soon as possible (for example they may route you through Westridge, or Skyline Drive). The goal of the police is to keep the marathon participants safe and the local residents happy. They were able to accomplish this quite well last year, so it should be fine again this year. I still would recommend staying home on Sunday morning unless you absolutely must go out, as the diversions may make your trip slow going. Enjoy the event, bring a picnic and come cheer for the runners. They will really appreciate it, and you will have a great time! Maybe you will even be inspired to run it next year!

Thanks for your patience and cooperation with this event. We really appreciate it!

Security updates – January 2011

Happy New Year to all our residents!

Thankfully, there were no incidents to report in the month of December.

We have started the New Year with our visitor badges system fully operational. However, there are a few concerns that I would like to address.


Security is becoming concerned about the amount of complaints we are receiving regarding children who were entering other resident’s property and getting into mischief over the holidays. In one instance, there were children who went on a construction site and were throwing the materials into the canals. In addition, another resident complained that some children were shooting her dog with pellet guns while the dog was locked in her back yard. I would like to encourage parents to make sure that their children are under control.

Protocol reminders:

We are still experiencing resistance from residents when asked by Security to roll down their car windows at night. This protocol is in place to ensure every resident’s safety. We need to be able to see who is in the car and make sure that you are not under any distress. Your co-operation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, the response to our request for a guest list from residents was low. The list will assist Security with the information regarding guests who visit regularly and are not to be held at the gate for clearance. Please ensure that you comply to this request by submitting the list to Security. Otherwise Security will continue with our standard protocol regarding calling for every visitor.

We look forward in 2011 to our continued partnership in ensuring a safe community in Sandyport.
