Grace Kennedy Education Run Targets $9.5 Million

 

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GraceKennedy Don Wehby said that the company is looking to use its GK Education 5K Run/Walk to aid its plan to send 10,000 children to school in the next few years.

The Run/Walk, which is also officially sponsored by The Gleaner Company (Media) Ltd, gets under way at 6 a.m. on Sunday July 9 in downtown Kingston. Wehby said this year's target is primarily to raise more funds.

"We have set an aggressive target of $9.5 million to continue to assist children with their education," Wehby said, during the media launch at GraceKennedy offices located at Harbour Street yesterday. "GraceKennedy is committed to education. We currently send 5,000 students to school, so I want by 2020 to send 10,000 students to school," he added.
