ICWI/Jamaica Reach to Recovery Pink Run Registration Extended to October 23

The registration for the highly anticipated 2018 ICWI/Jamaica Reach to Recovery Pink Run has been extended to Tuesday, October 23 as the excitement builds for the run slated for Sunday, October 28 at the Emancipation Park.

The Mad Andru fitness camp show off their ICWI Pink Run bags received after their training session at the Emancipation Park as they prep for the upcoming 2018 ICWI/Jamaica Reach to Recovery Pink Run that is scheduled for Sunday, October 28
“The support for the event from corporate teams has been overwhelming so we want to ensure everyone can be present at a run that is for a very worthy cause so we made the decision to extend the deadline. We are encouraging teams, families and individuals to send in their registration as we know there is a growing interest in the run and we don’t want anyone to miss out on a chance to participate in this family orientated event.” said Race Director Alfred Francis.

According to Francis the run which is under the theme “Tutus and tall socks. Colour Edition” can be used by groups preparing for the upcoming track and field season.

“There aren’t a lot of runs left on the calendar this season so it provides a great opportunity for them to background training as they get in full gear for the upcoming season,” added Francis.

The 2018 ICWI/Jamaica Reach to Recovery Pink Run is the culmination of a month of activities coordinated by the Jamaica Cancer Society to mark the month of October, which is internationally recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The run which is in its 18th year, and fourth year with ICWI as the title sponsor raises awareness and much-needed funds for the Jamaica Cancer Society’s Jamaica Reach to Recovery.

Jamaica Reach to Recovery is an affiliate of the Jamaica Cancer Society that provides emotional psychological and financial support to breast cancer survivors. Reach to Recovery consists of volunteers, all of whom are breast cancer survivors, whose roles, in addition to those previously mentioned, also includes providing information and counselling to breast cancer survivors and by extension their families and friends
