Upcoming Events – Walk/Runs and Exhibition Opening at the NGJ

Race for Hope

It is still not too late to register for the Race for Hope which will be held at Hope Gardens on 30 September (I still haven’t but I will do so after I finish blogging!). Proceeds are in aid of the Hope Gardens and Zoo and it features a new route which goes through the zoo. For more information on registration, parking etc visit Race For Hope.

Digicel Foundation 5k Night Run/Walk

The Digicel Foundation will be holding a 5k Night Run/Walk, starting at their new headquarters downtown on 20 October. Proceeds are in aid of Special Needs including facilities such as the STEP Centre, Mustard Seed Communities and Jamaica Society for the Blind.


Dubbed “Take Back the Night” I think it is an excellent initiative as we seek to redevelop Downtown Kingston. It should again become, a hub for recreational and cultural activities as well as commerce.

For additional information you may visit the Digicel Foundation’s website.

To register and also to get additional information you may go to the Running Events Limited website. It’s road race season, see you out there!

World-A-Reggae Exhibition

The National Gallery of Jamaica will be hosting and exhibition, World-A-Reggae: The 100 Best Entries from the First International Reggae Poster Contest, which will open to the public on Sunday, September 30 at 11 am. This will also be a part of their Sunday opening programme so after you have completed the Race for Hope head on to the Gallery. They will close at 4 p. m.
