Mike Henry, 83, to run Sigma on Sunday

February 15, 2019

Eighty-three year old Mike Henry says he is ready to participate in this Sunday's Sagicor Sigma Run.

The Central Clarendon member of parliament, this Friday, picked up his t-shirt and bib ahead of the event. He is expected to compete alongside his wife,  Dawn, who also picked up her t-shirt and bib.

This year, the charity run, which is in its 21st year, is aiming to raise $52 million for three beneficiaries: The Lupus Foundation of Jamaica, the May Pen Hospital Neonatal Unit and the Diabetes Association of Jamaica.

A special limited edition 'Hero Duck' capes is being introduced in honour of late comedienne Elva Ruddock.

Ruddock, who served as the start line emcee at the Sigma Run for the past five years, lost her battle with lupus disease in 2018.

The “Hero Duck” cape is a hit with Dawn Henry (centre) as she and her husband, Mike Henry, Member of Parliament for Central Clarendon, stopped by the Sagicor Sigma Run Secretariat office in New Kingston on Friday to show their support for the charity run. The cape is in honour of Elva Ruddock, who passed away from Lupus disease last year; she was the start line emcee at Sigma Run for the past five years.
