Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run is appealing for support from Jamaicans at home and abroad to make contributions to assist this year's beneficiaries of the annual 5k road race to take place on . The J$50M target set will aid children with cancer across the island, the Jamaica Cancer Society and Black River Hospital's Paediatric Unit.
Ingrid Card, Vice President of Group Marketing at Sagicor is urging Jamaicans to become active in their efforts to support the charities. "If we each call on our friends and family, it is easy to get 10 donations for these worthy charities - as little as J$1,000 or US$10 combined will make a lot," says Card.
