About This Activity

All proceeds from this event will go towards helping our community fight childhood obesity, a growing epidemic in our country.  For the past six years this annual event has provided funds to local schools who have programs that fight childhood obesity. We have provided funding for exercise equipment to funding a community garden.

Awards will only be distributed to 1st, 2nd 3rd place winners in each age category as well as the overall male and female winner. They will be handed out by JAMAICAN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST DON QUARRIE, FORMER WORLD CLASS SPRINTER.
