Nassau, Bahamas – As the eagerly anticipated CARIFTA Aquatics Championships 2024 draws near, the event has already made waves thanks to the generous backing of sponsors, showcasing the Bahamian community’s corporate commitment to nurturing young sports talent. At the forefront, Sun Oil Limited has made a contribution of $25,000, underscoring the event’s promise of athletic excellence and community upliftment.

Joining Sun Oil Limited in championing this cause are Silver Sponsors RBC Royal Bank, Dunkin Donuts, Arawak Port Development, and The Grand Bahama Port Authority, alongside dedicated Bronze Sponsors Bahamas Hot Mix, CFAL, and Subway.

“Each sponsor, with their distinct brand of commitment, significantly elevates the championship’s potential,” said Jurelle Mullings, Chairman of the CARIFTA Aquatics Local Organizing Committee. “Their contributions go beyond the financial as they’re investing in our youth’s future, paving the way for the next wave of Caribbean aquatic champions.”

Sun Oil Limited, taking the lead with its substantial support, exemplifies the profound impact corporate sponsorship can have on regional sports. “Our gold sponsorship for the CARIFTA Swimming Championships is a continuation of this proud tradition, offering a platform for our young swimmers to shine brightly on the national and regional stage. We are not just fueling their journeys, we are investing in the dreams of our future CARIFTA and Olympic champions,” remarked Fabian Fernander, Sun Oil Sales and Marketing Manger.
