The Wave cel­e­brates suc­cess of the 1st an­nual Men in Heels event

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Wave Ra­dio Sta­tion (94.5 & 93.7fm) is cel­e­brat­ing the suc­cess of the 1st an­nual Men in Heels event which took place on Sun­day 2nd Novem­ber 2014 at the Pi­geon Is­land Cause­way. As the of­fi­cial ra­dio spon­sor of the suc­cess­ful an­nual Yo­plait Walk for Can­cer for the past 3 years, The Wave this year added this new el­e­ment right after the Walk to fo­cus on and raise aware­ness of Can­cer in Men with pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards the St. Lu­cia Can­cer So­ci­ety.

Men In Heels (Dash for Cash) took the form of an ‘ob­sta­cle course race’ where the par­tic­i­pat­ing men raced for the cash at the fin­ish line, by com­plet­ing the en­tire ob­sta­cle course in a pair of heels.

There was great par­tic­i­pa­tion from the crowd as they cheered on the large num­ber of St. Lu­cian men who came out to com­pete and to help raise aware­ness for the wor­thy cause. In the end Ju­lian Tous­saint be­came the first ever ‘Men in Heels Cham­pion’ win­ning $1000 cash, a trophy and a $400 din­ner voucher for Big Chef Steak­house. Jerome Gi­rard came in sec­ond place win­ing a ham­per, com­pli­ments CFL and a $500 voucher from St. Lu­cia Bandag. Round­ing off the com­pe­ti­tion in third place was Reginald St. Juste win­ning a $400 voucher for Ta­pas on the Bay and a Pro­tex Gift Box.

The man­age­ment and staff of The Wave 94.5 & 93.7fm would like to send a heart­felt thank you to ALL their cor­po­rate spon­sors who came on­board to support and spon­sor the first an­nual Men In Heels event: Con­sol­i­dated Foods, Dig­i­cel 4G, GTM, Su­per J Su­per­mar­kets, Shoe Re­hab, Be Fit, St. Lu­cia Bandag, Choice TV, Re­li­able Tool Rental, Scotts Sports and Awards.
