On Sunday, November 18, 2012, the inaugural CB Group UWI 5K Run will be held at The University of the West Indies for the benefit of education and the development of sports at the University with Caribbean Broilers as the Lead Sponsors and under the patronage of The Honourable Douglas Orane and Professor Gordon Shirley.
The Run is an initiative of Grand Jamaica Homecoming 2012 Canada which is a pan-Canadian organization spearheaded by a group of volunteers in Canada and Jamaica, to create an awakening and a “movement” to inspire Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica to “come home” and reconnect with the island in a meaningful way for its 50th anniversary of independence.
Funds generated from The Run will be used to award scholarships to outstanding academic achievers enrolled at UWI who demonstrate financial need and for University’s sports facilities to better serve in the development of student athletes.
Registration cost: $1000, Students: $500
October 10, 2012 to November 9, 2012
