7,200 Shone their light for Digicel Foundation Special Needs

Here are scenes from last Saturday, 26 October, when 7,200 Jamaicans and
friends gathered at the Digicel Regional Headquarters at the Downtown
Kingston Waterfront to 'shine their light for special needs'. It was the
first renewal of the Digicel Foundation 5K Night Run/Walk and its popularity
in 2012 drew even bigger numbers this year.

We proceeded up King Street to Parade, around St William Grant Park, down
Church Street, left on Harbour Street to Jamaica Stock Exchange where we
finished our walk along the glistening waters of the Kingston Harbour.

We spotted Jamaica's first blind Senator and Leader of the Upper House,
Senator Floyd Morris, Paralympian Gold Medallist Alphanso Cunningham,
special needs residents of Mustard Seed homes, all part of our beautiful
swell of humanity.

Now 11 special needs schools and homes will benefit from ALL the funds
collected. Congratulations to the Digicel Foundation team led by Samantha
Chantrelle, with folks like Kerry-Jo Lyn and Lindsay Templer fully on board
as well as PROComm's Vicki Cann.

We know why there was such a sweet spirit in the Digicel car park and at the
post event concert - it is because doing good makes you feel great!
