– stakeholders call for increased participation
The Neal and Massy Group yesterday launched the second edition of what is commonly known as the AinLim 10km Road Race and 3km Fitness Walk/Jog at its Ruimveldt-based location with stakeholders urging mass participation on September 9 at 6am.
The first race was held last year and based on that success, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Neal & Massy Group, Deo Persaud indicated that every effort was made to ensure that the race returns to the
Athletic Association of Guyana (AAG) calendar.
“As a group, we have an interest in health and wellness in our country; as responsible corporate citizens we are using this event as a means of giving back to our community,” Persaud said, as he called on all and sundry to be part of the growing road race and walk.
“We want to continue this partnership with the AAG and we want to continue to develop that,” Persaud indicated. The Group’s CEO committed to full participation in all segments of the event from the company’s staff, stating that they have an internal competition.
The road race will dole out a top prize of $75,000 with second place taking home $60,000, third place $40,000, fourth place $15,000 and fifth place $10,000 in the male and female open groups, with a trophy accompanying each cash prize. The top three prizes for the Masters 35 years and above and 40-55 years are $40,000, $20,000 and $15,000 while the Masters 55 years and above take home $25,000, $15,000 and $7,500. Juniors take home $50,000, $30,000, $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 respectively for both male and female categories.
President of the AAG, Colin Boyce also joined in the calls for an increased participation when he said that staff of other companies, ministries and other stakeholders should support the event that is not just limited to Neal & Massy Group staff and club athletes.
