CB Group/ UWI 5k & Smart Eggs Kids K

Event Date: 
Nov 16 2014 - 7:00am - 9:00am

The 3rd annual CB Group UWI 5K Run/Walk and Smart Eggs Kids K will be held on Sunday November 16, 2014 at The UWI Mona Bowl for sporting excellence commencing at 7:00a.m. sharp.

This year the goal is to double the number of registrants and to raise $15 million to continue funding the scholarship initiative as well as to finance the purchase of much needed equipment for the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) Dialysis Unit. The event last year recorded 3,000 registered participants and raised $10 million. This has brought the total to $28 million over two years, making it the most successful 5K in Jamaica based on the ratio of participants to funds raised. The proceeds go directly into student development through sporting and academic scholarships.

The CB Group UWI 5K and Smart Eggs Kids K will be managed once again by Running Events Ltd and will feature accurate chip timing for both the adult and kiddies (ages 4 – 11) races. Olympians Warren Weir and Hansle Parchment will again run/walk with the kids, for the first ever official chip timed Kids K.
