NHF EXPANDS PORTMORE 5K WALK/RUN TO INCLUDE A BIKEATHON

The second National Health Fund, NHF Portmore 5K Walk/Run is set for this Sunday May 15, 2010 starting at 7:30 a.m. and has been expanded to include a bikeathon. The 5K walk/run will precede the bikeathon and there will also be a number of contests including hula-hoop, skipping and football juggling.

Mr. Hugh Lawson, CEO of the NHF said, “We decided to include a bikeathon and other contests, to add variety to the event and thereby expand the number of people who would want to participate.” Mr. Marvin Anderson, President of the Endurance Cycling Club of Portmore, says cycling has always been a part of the Portmore community and he welcomes the inclusion of a bikeathon in the NHF sponsored event. “We are happy to join with NHF to promote the whole concept of a healthy lifestyle as this is in the best interest of the Portmore community. Our membership in the cycling club, ranges from juniors to masters with our oldest member who is 73 years old and so we look forward to a wide cross section of the community coming out to participate in the event.”

The route for the NHF 5K Walk/Run will begin at Portmore Drive and run through Westchester Drive, Redwood Avenue, Benbow Avenue, Shenton Avenue, Germaine Road onto Bridgeport Road and Portmore Parkway and will finish at the Portmore Heart Academy. Entry forms are available at the Portmore Heart Academy and may also be had from the NHF website www.nhf.org.jm. There is no entry fee.
