Run For Your Heart 5K/2K
In a significant effort to raise awareness and promote heart health in Jamaica, The Heart Foundation of Jamaica held its annual Run for Your Heart (RFYH) 2K/5K Run/Walk on the 2nd of February 2020 at the Emancipation Park. We had over 1900 participants, including corporate companies, schools, fitness clubs, church groups that came out and ran for the cause. The funds raised from the RFYH 2K/5K race will support the continuation of subsidized heart health services offered to our customers across Jamaica.
Our RFYH event is part of our initiative to educate Jamaicans and raise awareness about the healthy lifestyle choices that are required to maintain a healthier and fuller life. As a part of that awareness initiative, we firmly advocate and encourage persons to “Know their numbers” (blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and body mass index) to detect any possible early signs of heart disease.
A hearty thank you to all our sponsors who made our Run for Your Heart 5K/2K event a huge success, see you all February 7, 2021!
