Sagicor gives back with Phoenix Walk Run

Thursday, April 20, 2017

On April 22, Sagicor will once again stage the Phoenix Walk Run, a one lap run around the Queen’s Park Savannah, starting at 6 pm, opposite Victoria Avenue.

Sagicor views this event as a chance for personal rejuvenation for participants, while providing an opportunity to support the Down Syndrome Family Network and The Dyslexia Association of T&T.

In a release, Sagicor corporate communications manager Marlene Chin invites citizens “to have fun, while contributing to two worthy charities by being part of the Sagicor Phoenix Walk Run”.

Cathryn Kelshall of The Dyslexia Association said, “We’re pleased to be one of the chosen charities selected by Sagicor. Dyslexia affects many children and adults in the country. The more awareness we can bring to the cause will help in understanding and awareness of the specific methods for teaching dyslexics that are offered by the Association.”

Lisa Ghany of the Down Syndrome Family Network commented that “associations rely on long-term relationships like the one with Sagicor to support their growth and development”.

A special feature of this year’s race is the Sub-20 category where elite runners will vie for the title of fastest person around the Savannah. It is expected that several people will complete the course in under 20 minutes.

Race participants can look forward to tassa, a rhythm section and other fun surprises along the Savannah lap. Participants will receive a medal, a t-shirt and a water bottle.

Race registration is $70 and will be exclusively online at and will close today.
