Cycling Federation of Belize Release

2016 Philanthropy Award

The word philanthropy is synonymous with the name Raymond “Steeler” Garbutt. Our award today is fitting to a guy who has literally been giving and giving and giving. In fact, that giving didn’t just happened out of the clear blue sky. It all began with his late father who started the tradition of donating $100.00 as a station prize at the Garbutt Service Station in Roaring Creek. Since then that figure has grown considerably. Mr. Garbutt not only donated to the Holy Saturday Cross Country Classic, but every single race that passes through, or finishes at the Gas Station, rest assure there will a prize.

Speaking with Mr. Garbutt he reiterated that cycling is a hard sport and the cyclists deserve to be compensated hence his generosity towards this sport. The CFB is honored to present the 2016 Philanthropy Award to Mr. Raymond “Steeler” Garbutt for his continued contribution to the sport of cycling. We thank you for your notable, selfless act of kindness towards the development of cycling.
