Team Jamaica Bickle has made its mark in the field of road race events with the introduction of its 5K Run/Walk in 201, targeting the Caribbean American population.
The theme, "Promoting Healthy Lifestyles" signals a message encouraging a more conscious approach to how we (as a community) embrace health and wellness as part of our daily regiment. The TJB 5K is a positive event for the community and a significant step in driving grassroots support for healthy lifestyles while promoting the benefits of exercise.
The effort has in its genesis a broader vision for a healthier community and will hopefully aid in combating the high incidences of obesity and diseases such as hypertension and diabetes within our population.
Included in the program are a 1 mile youth run & 5K walk.
