Jamaica Observer / Olympic and World Champion Usain Bolt, one of the three patrons for this year’s Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run, has enlisted the help of his friend, famed American comedian Kevin Hart, to endorse the charity run scheduled for Sunday, February 18, 2018. Bolt, rated as the greatest sprinter of all time, posted the video endorsement yesterday on his Instagram page, which has a following of almost eight million fans.
In the video Hart encourages Jamaicans to support the run as it is for a great cause. “Go out and challenge yourself; be the best version of yourself and help people while doing it,” he said.
The comedian, who is known to love running, said he fully supports the cause, even though he will not be able to be at the event.
This year, the event marks its 20th anniversary and all proceeds will go to the Spanish Town Hospital Special Care/Neonatal Unit and St Christopher’s School for the Deaf in Brown’s Town, St Ann. The fund-raising target is set at $50 million.
Bolt, who holds the world record in both the 100m and 200m, said he feels “extremely proud to once again be a patron of the Sagicor Sigma Run” and is fully committed to working with the Sagicor team to ensure that all targets are met.
