Sagicor reported yesterday that a record number of participants have registered for this year's Sigma Corporate Run, scheduled for this Sunday in New Kingston.

The 21st staging of the run, which has a target of raising $52 million for three beneficiaries, has surpassed its 2019 target of 25,000 participants, as well as last year's record 26,519 registrants.

This year's beneficiaries are the Lupus Foundation of Jamaica, Diabetes Association of Jamaica, and May Pen Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

“The Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run is such an inspirational and positive event, which is held annually all for meaningful causes,” a company release quotes Alysia White, assistant Vice president, group marketing, Sagicor Group Jamaica and Sigma Run Team Lead.

She said the team was pleased that Jamaicans continue to support the run and see it fit to partner with the Sagicor Foundation every year in a bid to change lives and make a difference to Jamaica.

White also thanked registrants from corporate Jamaica as well as individual Sigma Run supporters for their commitment to the cause.

The Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run is the largest road race in the Caribbean and has raised more than $350 million in donations for over 30 beneficiaries since inception in 1999. Last year the run donated the $50 million raised to Spanish Town Hospital's Neonatal Unit and St Christopher's School for the Deaf.
