IRIE FM GRAND HEALTH FAIR WELL SUPPORTED
IRIE FM’s Grand Health Fair was a tremendous success.
Runners, walkers, celebrities, health practitioners, sponsors and fans gathered at the Buckfield Playfield on Sunday for the culmination.
The set up featured healthy lifestyle materials raging from food to literature as well as free blood pressure checks, free blood sugar checks and free HIV checks.
The celebrities were certainly out in their numbers. Beenie Man who was slated to participate in the 10K run, slept throughout the event but delivered a great performance during the concert.
Meanwhile Anthony Cruz who made an attempt at the 10k run was assisted by a bicycle man who towed him almost to the finish line. Then there were Richie Stevens and General Degree who were apart of the very last batch to finish the 10K run. Jigsy King, Takura of Royal African Soldiers, Prophecy and Reggae Boys Coach Theodore “Tappa” Whitmore all finished with the first hundred to cross the finish line in the 10K run. While Abijah, Peter Lloyd and Neto Meeks Also of Royal African Soldiers were not placed but made it to the finish line in the 5k walk.
Other great performances during the concert came from Tanya Stephens, Richie Stephens, Anthony Cruz, Hero, Prophecy, Royal African Soldiers, Degree, Zamunda, Noddy Virtue and Jody-Ann Pantry, Lymie Murray and Junior Reid.
Gospel entertainer Jabeez who started the live performances during the Sunday Sunshine had Christians and non Christians giving thanks and praise.
The 5K walk which started at the Buckfield Playfield was won by a woman. While a male won the 10K run.
IRIE FM’s Grand Health Fair ended minutes after 2pm on Sunday, March 29.
