Known for turning the streets of New Kingston into a vibrant sea of runners, walkers, and wheelchair users for charity, plans are in high gear for Sagicor Foundation’s Sigma ‘Honour’ Run set for Sunday (February 18). 

For this 26th year, the fundraising efforts will be used to support three institutions that play an important role in Jamaica’s healthcare and education sectors namely, the Savanna-La-Mar Public General Hospital, National Chest Hospital and Danny Williams School for the Deaf. 

Committed to its 100-million-dollar fundraising target for its beneficiaries, Sagicor Foundation extends an open invitation to all Jamaicans.

So, whether you are novice runner or avid 5k road champion with your donation, you are becoming a vital part of a legacy that touches lives and helps build a brighter future for the many families and communities that depend on the life-saving services of these institutions.

How to make a difference

Not a runner? No problem! If you are not able to physically join on race day, you can still play your part and donate to the Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run through a variety of channels, some of which include:
