TRYALL, Hanover — Anthony Mills and Juliet Dinnal claimed their titles as the male and female winners of the 2013 Flow CUMI Come Run 10k Run race in 39 minutes 32 seconds and 48 minutes 10 seconds respectively at the Tryall Club in Hanover on Saturday.
Eighteen -year- old Dominic Powell and Jamaica Money Market Brokers' Kamar Ashman ran 18 minutes 23 seconds and 25 minutes 42 seconds respectively to cop the top spots in the 5k Run.
Title sponsors Flow copped the top prize for the largest team crossing the finish line with 100 participants. The Corporate, Hotel and Bank Challenges registering the first five winners in each category were won by Flow, Sunset Beach Resort and Sagicor respectively.
Mills believes the fundraiser is very relevant for the Western region and is encouraging more participation.
"I feel that CUMI is a great programme and it shows that we still have people who care for the mentally ill and that's a very good sign. It's good to see that the company I work for, Xerox, is giving their support in a bigger way this year," he said. "I think we still need to see more people giving support, not only during this event but continuous support. I encourage western Jamaica to put out more effort because this is all about improving our society."
The annual event, which is held to raise funds for the Committee for the Upliftment of the Mentally Ill (CUMI), attracted over 400 participants in a bid to raise $3 million. CUMI is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), registered as a non-profit and charitable foundation based in Montego Bay Jamaica to provide clinical and social services to the homeless mentally ill persons in the community.
