Registration for Sagicor Sigma Run to close on Friday

Registration for the 17th staging of the Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run closes this Friday, February 6. The road race which incorporates runners, walkers and wheel chair entrants will take place in New Kingston on Sunday, February 22.

Alysia Moulton-White, Manager of Public Relations and Promotions at Sagicor Group Jamaica says “We are a caring nation. We salute those who give their time and resources to help our nation’s children. Every time someone signs up, 100 per cent of their money goes directly to purchasing equipment or providing well needed services for this year’s charities, the Neonatal Unit of the Cornwall Regional Hospital and Jamaica Kidney Kids Foundation.”
Participants of the Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run gathered on the streets of New Kingston on Sunday for the 2014 staging for charity. Some 22,368 registered in support of the event. Sagicor raised over 21 million dollars for child health care facilities this year.
To-date approximately $146M has been raised by the Run for various charities across the island, with a $25M target set for 2015. Last year, with 22,501 registrants in addition to our donors and sponsers,, Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run raised in excess of $21M.

Dr Mayolynne Miller, Chairman of Jamaica Kidney Kids Foundation says “Most of the children we treat are born with abnormal kidneys. We have been trying a long time to raise money from them, so what we get from the Sigma Run will go a long way to ensuring their survival.”
