Although I arrived late, I still caught plenty of action to share with you from the Jamaica National (JN) Foundation Heroes in Action 5K which took place in Falmouth, Jamaica this morning.
The event, which was a fund raiser in aid of the Granville Place of Safety (girls home) was a joint presentation of both the JN Foundation in association and the Usain Bolt Foundation.
This is a photo-blog of the event. Let the photos and videos tell the story.
