Grange endorses Guardian 5K Night Runs

Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has lauded the work being done by the Guardian Group through its Keep It Alive 5K Night Runs.

“I am very impressed with what you’ve been able to achieve with these races.  Since 2014, you’ve raised 22 million dollars to assist health care in our country, particularly hospitals.  I commend you for providing this opportunity for our people to participate in a fulfilling, enjoyable and healthy event,” said Minister Grange at the Launch of the Keep It Alive 5K Night Runs earlier today (Wednesday) in Kingston.

According to Minister Grange, the races fit into the Ministry’s programme to increase the number of Jamaicans participating in sports as part of efforts the encourage a culture of physical fitness.

“We want to see more people, at every age, playing sports.  The more active we are, the healthier we will be,” the Minister added.

According to Minister Grange, her Ministry and the Guardian Group have been “working well together in the implementation of the Jamaica Athletes’ Insurance Plan.”  More that 1,200 of the country’s athletes across various disciplines are covered under the Plan.

The Guardian Group Keep It Alive 5K Night Runs will take place in Kingston and Montego Bay on November 5 and 12 respectively.
