Jamaica Gleaner - - 24.7 -

Kes the Band 5K Walk & River Bon­fire Party at the Tru Juice Or­chards, Bog Walk, pa­trons con­nected with na­ture, adorn­ing them­selves with glow sticks and tak­ing to the trail in a blaze of glory.

Huawei had their P9 con­nected to mon­ster speak­ers to pro­vide the night’s en­ter­tain­ment.

“I think it’s great that Huawei took the ini­tia­tive to join in with TrainFit to fa­cil­i­tate this 5K Walk be­cause we are in the day and age where ev­ery­one is try­ing to get fit and not ev­ery­one wants to be at the gym just do­ing reps. So the fact that we get to come out here and ex­er­cise while hav­ing fun is a great,” said Rushane Suther­land, a pa­tron.

The Huawei P9 set the beat for the night. Pa­trons were sur­prised at the live mu­sic that was be­ing pro­vided was from the phone, many stop­ping along the trail to con­firm and check to see where the mu­sic was com­ing from.

“The 5K Walk went be­yond the reg­u­lar mun­dane 5K, but served as a medium to ed­u­cate pa­trons about the joy of con­nect­ing with each other and na­ture with­out the use of tech­nol­ogy,” said Chrysta Walker, mar­ket­ing man­ager of Huawei Ja­maica.

The party stops all had dif­fer­ent gen­res of mu­sic. At the end of the walk, pa­trons sat around the bon­fire.
