12 43 21 PUMA’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Olympian Juliet Camp­bell, speak­ing at Fri­day’s launch of the Mico Univer­sity Col­lege’s first Pre-Univer­sity Men’s Pro­gramme (PUMP) 5K Run/Walk. PUMA sports­wear are the ma­jor spon­sors of the event. THE 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 PreUniver­sity 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.


Chair­man 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, 3039, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over. En­try fees will see stu­dents with IDs pay­ing $500, and $800 for Groups of 20, while it will be $1,000 for other in­di­vid­u­als.

PUMA sports­wear will be the ma­jor spon­sors of the event. The com­pany was rep­re­sented by Juliet Camp­bell.
