The third staging of the Guardian Group Foundation ‘Keep It Alive’ 5K Night Runs, scheduled for Saturday, November 5 in Kingston and Saturday, November 12 in Montego Bay, promises to be more memorable than in years past.Though the foundation’s main objective of hosting the 5K events is to give back to the health sector by way of purchasing much-needed medical equipment for four of the island’s hospitals – University Hospital of the West Indies, Cornwall Regional Hospital, St Ann’s Bay Hospital and Mandeville Regional Hospital – the foundation also recognises that the overall participants’ experience is critical in ensuring they gain support in the years to come.This year, the featured after- race lyme, which is open only to registrants, will have international dancehall star Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis as the main entertainer at both events. So for only $1200 (individual registration), participants will not only be contributing to a worthwhile cause, but will also be thoroughly entertained.So, grab your friends, family, colleagues and team up, lace up and warm up as you get ready to run, walk or wheel in support of our hospitals.Visit the race website at www.keepitalive5k.com for more details.
