JAMAICA: Bolt ready for Heroes in Act!on Run/Walk


Jamaica Gleaner / The world's fastest man, Usain St. Leo Bolt, will start the Heroes in Act!on Run/Walk, this coming Sunday, October 15, at the Falmouth Cruise Port at 7:00 a.m. in Trelawny. The event is being staged by the JN Foundation, in partnership with the Usain Bolt Foundation.

"This year's event promises to be one with a difference," said Bolt, who pointed out that, "This is not a competitive event; but, one for family and friends, celebrating heroes and running for a good cause."

"The proceeds from the event, which takes place under the theme 'Run For Our Heroes,' will be donated to the Trelwany Infirmary, to upgrade and refurbish the facility, which houses 62 senior citizens," he informed.

Saffrey Brown, general manager of the JN Foundation, said that preparations are in high gear for the third staging of the event. "The response to the event from the public has been encouraging with about 10 sponsors on board. We, therefore, anticipate a successful run/walk on October 15," she said.

The Mayor of Falmouth, Councillor Colin Gager, said the historic town of Falmouth was in high anticipation of the event and stands ready to welcome patrons who will participate in the run.

"This is a great opportunity to showcase the town of Falmouth so that the Georgian architecture can be seen. I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy themselves," he said.

The Mayor noted that he was also happy that Trelawny Infirmary was this year's beneficiary for the run. "This is happening at the appropriate time and all the proceeds from the event will go towards rehabilitation of the infirmary," he said.

The general manager of JN Foundation pointed out that persons who are unable to physically participate in the event may donate to the cause via the crowdfunding platform, ISupportJamaica.com.

"Log onto the ISupportJamaica website at:  www.isupportjamaica.com and donate. Also encourage your friends and families to pledge to this cause," she stated, noting that the site is safe and secure.

Persons can also visit the JN Foundation and Running Events websites at the www.jnfoundation.com or www.runningeventsja.com to view the route maps.

The Run/Walk will culminate in a post-run celebration and awards ceremony, featuring entertainment by Ding Dong and Kevin Downswell.
