Sprinter Asafa Powell will be handing over $500,000 to the Kingston Public Hospital tomorrow. 

Powell will be making the donation through the Asafa Powell Foundation.  

The donation, which is from the #SpreadABed4KPH fundraising campaign that was launched in 2014, will be made tomorrow morning at the hospital's boardroom.

Powell explained that he launched the crowdfunding initiative after visiting someone close to him at the hospital. 

"Someone very close to me fell victim to violence recently and had to be taken there. The doctors and nurses provided the best possible care, but they work under some really tough conditions. I couldn't believe my eyes," he said in 2014.
