Digicel Foundation takes back the night in Downtown Kingston

The Wray & Nephew Bar gets ready to greet thirsty runners!

The Lime team gave their support - Jamaica's special needs projects are bigger than any competition!

Over 5,000 Jamaicans from every walk of life headed downtown this evening to participate in the Digicel Foundation Run/Walk. The race started and ended at the new Digicel Regional Headquarters right next to some of the toughest parts of the city.
What a wonderful feeling to park good distance away and walk feeling absolutely safe. It's a revolution - a reclamation of parts of Jamaica that we used to avoid. This is the exciting 'Kingston Town' Belafonte sang about - let's keep the joy alive!
It took a fearless Denis O'Brien, Founder and Chairman of Digicel to help us see the potential of these open lots facing our beautiful waterfront.
Not only did this event help hundreds of special needs children - it also gave us back the city our parents had enjoyed. What a success! Certainly, Digicel 'Set the night on fire'.
