Mico PUMP 5K Walk/Run set for October 30

first_imgTHE Mico University College launched its first 5K Run/Walk last Friday at the college campus on Marescaux Road, Cross Roads.Set for Sunday, October 30, the event will start at 7 a.m. at the gates of the Mico campus on Marescaux Road. Funds from the event will go to the Pre-University Men’s Programme (PUMP).At Friday’s launch, President of the Mico University College Dr Asburn Pinnock spoke about the importance of the PUMP programme which started in 2008.”Recently, a University of the West Indies researcher revealed that more than 76 per cent of the teachers in the classrooms are females, and this has since rekindled the discussion regarding male marginalisation in our education system. We aim to balance this equation by providing opportunities for more men to be qualified as teachers”, said Pinnock. “While our PUMP programme is geared mainly to matriculate students to access teacher-education programmes here at Mico I believe we can also expand to include certification in music, physical education, art , animation , entrepreneurial and other professional development courses,” stated Pinnock.RACING ROUTEChairman of the organising committee for the event, Ian Forbes of Sherwin Williams, spoke about the route which will see the runners starting at the college gate on Marescaux Road then up on to Caledonia Avenue, left Tom Redcam Drive, straight across Oxford Road, right on to Knutsford Road, down Tom Redcam Drive, right on to Caledonia Avenue, then back to Marescaux Road, ending at the campus gate.There will be prizes for the top-three male and female finishers and several other categories including males and females ages 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over.
