Rowley said the region's history was "littered with instances of destructive behaviour, disrespectful dominance, imbalances and other forms of man's inhumanity to man. "But on this rare occasion, when we are all yoked to an invisible destroyer, it is my hope and plea that, when the journal of this experience is written, it would deviate from what is mostly the norm and record that on this occasion, the rich took care of the poor, and the small and the impecunious were not trampled with disdain by those who could have done so simply because they had the wherewithal to do it."

On starting her long-distance running career in her fifties, Lewis said, "She made it hard for a lot of people to find an excuse not to be active...I recall I think reading in 2016 that she had participated in the Guapo to Pt Fortin race. If you do the arithmetic she had to be in her late 80s because that would have been about five years ago. Granny Luces contribution is incredible. She would have inspired a lot of people to get up and walk even if they did not want to take on the challenge of a marathon."
