Kingston, Jamaica – May 4, 2015: The deadline for Food For The Poor (FFP) Jamaica’s 5K has been extended until tomorrow, May 5.

The charity organisation made the announcement over the weekend as it tries to boost the funds being raised from registration, to build houses for Jamaicans in need.

“We are delighted with the tremendous support that our 5K has been receiving,” David Mair, Executive Director, FFP Jamaica. “However, we are responding to several calls over the weekend so that others can participate. We want all Jamaicans who have not got a chance to register to do so, and be a part of this wonderful event which is for a good cause and which Jamaicans in need of houses will benefit from.”

FFP’s inaugural 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 9 – the eve of Mother’s Day in Kingston, Jamaica, starting at Emancipation Park going on to Oxford Road, Old Hope Road, Seaview Avenue, Trafalgar Road and Knutsford Boulevard back to Emancipation Park.

Those still interested in registering can contact 434-9250 or email Teams with more than 50 members will benefit from a group discount. All proceeds will go towards the building of homes for the indigent and will be matched by Food For The Poor Florida.
