“The Fun Run is a meaningful twenty-six (26) mile run designed to create community awareness about the danger caused by Diabetes Complications in an effort to contribute to the prevention, reversal, or elimination of this deadly disease, a leading killer of Belizeans and people across the globe,” said the Belmopan City Council in a statement on Friday.
The BCC said over 15 teams consisting of more than 150 participants with support and representation from all high schools in the Garden City along with the UB Student Government and Builders Hardware have signed up to participate.
“We encourage all to be amongst the first active fighters to eliminate Killer Diabetes by supporting our Eight Annual 26 Mile-Run for Diabetes 2022 under this year’s World Diabetes Theme ‘Education to Protect Tomorrow’,” said the Belmopan City Council.
Registration is $35.00 BZE per person and includes a T-shirt. The Belmopan City Council said that they are offering a business discount for teams of 10 participants for $335. They are also offering to print company logos on the T-shirts.
