Bolt looking forward to JN Heroes Weekend 5K

first_img“Come out and run with me; discover my parish and support a worthy cause.”That’s the message from superstar sprinter Usain Bolt, as the ‘I’s are dotted and the ‘t’s crossed, ahead of the inaugural Jamaica National Building Society (JN) Foundation Heroes in Action 5k Run/Walk, set for Sunday, October 18.Geared towards raising support for the Granville Place of Safety for Girls, the course will take participants through one of the island’s most picturesque corridors – where Georgian artistry meets Caribbean charm, a point that Alfred Francis from race organisers Running Events was quick to underline.However, the opportunity to rub shoulders with one of the most recognisable faces in international sports, Usain Bolt, who was born and raised not too far away in Sherwood Content, will no doubt be a big draw for the road-running community, as well as the casual participant.Bolt told The Sunday Gleaner yesterday that he is looking forward to taking part in the event and encouraged everyone to join him.”I’ll be there, and I can say that I’m really looking forward to this event. I can’t promise that I will do all 5K, but I am ready for any challenge. I do not intend to lose another race before I retire,” he laughed in reference to last week’s ‘made-for-TV’ race with eight-year-old viral video fitness enthusiast DemarJay Smith on the popular Ellen Degeneres Show.”This event is in aid of a worthy cause, one that the Usain Bolt Foundation is honoured to lend its support to,” added the 17-time Olympic and World Champion sprinter.Saffrey Brown, JN Foundation general manager, reiterated the importance of the event and what it means to the future of its charity, the Granville Place of Safety for Girls.”There have been a lot of issues recently about protection for young people, and we really wanted to look at how we could help them get a better sort of start and increase their chances for positive outcome,” Brown said.Use of proceedsShe underlined that proceeds from the run/walk will be used to build a classroom, media library and sewing room for the facility, which caters to at-risk under-aged females.Speaking to the route itself, Francis said that the reception has been positive, while promising an enriching experience for all participants.”I see a lot of emails floating around from running groups planning to take a ride out of town and participate. Of course, we have a concentration of road races in Kingston, but it’s a holiday weekend. A lot of persons want to go out of town, go on the North Coast, and so we are providing something for their palette,” Francis said. “There is no race in Falmouth, so for the people in the town, the schools in and around the area, in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and so on, we also want them to come out and share.”last_img read more

The findings of the students’ research are significant and I’m very happy with the progress the research programme is making”.This is the third consecutive year that the Letterkenny Hospital Breast Unit has undertaken a research fellowship programme for the summer, with a small stipend for the research fellows funded through generous donations from the community.Letterkenny Hospital is a satellite to the designated cancer centre in Galway and is making a significant contribution to advancing clinical breast research in Ireland. Mr Michael Sugrue and the team, with Dr Duffy, Consultant Oncologist; Dr McGowan, Consultant Radiologist; Dr O’Dowd, Consultant Pathologist; Dr Salib, Consultant Radiation/Oncology and Geraldine MacGregor, Breast Nurse Specialist, have established one of the first courses in the world for teaching multi disciplinary breast cancer care to health professionals.This exciting one-day programme is being organised by the Donegal Clinical Research Academy and will take place on Friday 15 August.Three international guest speakers will attend including Dr Sandra Brennan from Sloan-Kettering in the United States, Petrousjka van den Tol from the Netherlands and Professor Koji Yamashita from Japan. LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL STUDENTS LEADING THE WAY IN BREAST CANCER SURGERY RESEARCH was last modified: August 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:breast surgerycancerdonegalLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more

DDTV: VIDEO OF RUNNERS IN THE BALLYARE 10K

first_imgMORE than 115 runners took part in the Ballyare 10k in glorious Donegal sunshine this evening.Locals lined the route to cheer on the runners – and the dozens more taking part in a fun walk/run earlier. There was a great atmosphere at one of Donegal’s finest historical pubs ‘Carrs of the Diamond’ where tea, sandwiches and cakes were laid on for runners and spectators; and of course the odd fine ale for those who wanted one.Pauric McKinney won the race in just over 34 minutes; about the time it would take the odd donegaldaily.com staffer to drive the same route, which wound its way around the fair byways and highways of Ballyare.We hope to have all the results on donegaldaily.com later. Our video shows all the runners just 100 metres after the start of the race as it hit the Ards road to Ramelton.DDTV: VIDEO OF RUNNERS IN THE BALLYARE 10K was last modified: August 19th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ballyare 10kCarrs of the DiamondDDTVdonegallast_img read more
