Fairfield International Academy (FIA) will on Sunday stage its inaugural 5K Colour Walk/Run, starting at the Blue Diamond Shopping Centre in Ironshore, St James.

More than 200 participants are expected to participate in the event which is set to begin at 6:30 am.

“At each of the markers, the racers are going to experience students tossing blue, yellow, red, pink and green coloured powder. By the end of the race, you will find that everyone looks tie-dyed in vibrant colours,” according to a release from FIA.

“The proceeds of the event are in support of One Love Learning Foundation, and one of the schools that benefit from the educational efforts is Watford Hill Primary in Hanover,” the academy said.

FIA says it is pleased with the number of people who have registered to participate.

“This is incredible for the very first time. The Parent/ Teachers' Association and FIA students have been working months to make certain this event perfectly unfolds,” the release said.
