Walkers hit the road
At exactly 6 o’clock sharp this morning the countdown started for the Nation Fun Walk and the atmosphere was charged with excitement and anxiety was high as the throng of children, men and women, anticipated that signal, GO!
By the time the Nation’s Editor in Chief, Kaymar Jordan completed the count and before the gun signal went off, the eager walkers were already on their way.
The huge crowd, consisting of various groups, organisations, schools, individuals, clowns, people wearing costumes and even a dog, made their way from Independence Square along River Road onto Collymore Rock through Wildey . They had one objection in mind. Their aim was to cross the finish line at Bay Street .
Inspector Leon Blades of the police traffic division said there were no reports of serious incidents.
Winners in various categories received trophies during the presentation ceremony which started promptly at 9.a.m.
