Registration open for SAJ 5K

Published:Tuesday | June 14, 2016 | 6:00 AM

Registration is now open for the Shipping Industry 5K Road Race1. This event, hosted by the Shipping Association of Jamaica (SAJ), is intended to engage the shipping industry in an activity that promotes wellness and
boosts the impact of its Corporate Social Responsibility projects within the communities in which the association operates.
Funds raised from the event will go towards the Marcus Garvey School located in Greenwich Town in the vicinity of the Port of Kingston. The school is sponsored by the SAJ, which pays teacher salaries, in addition to periodic capital costs. The staff of the SAJ also funds a feeding programme for the students on a monthly basis out of their own pockets. This one-of-a-kind race is open to all runners and walkers who want to experience a delightful out-and-back 5K route in the important business district of Newport West and Marcus Garvey Drive.
