Father and  son run things

Social Share

STARCOM?Network often projects itself as one big family down by the river and father and son Orin and Oein Josiah lived that maxim by slamming the field to take the inaugural Envita Life 97.5 Fitness Challenge yesterday.
Oein was the first male to reach Brandons representing the green team while his father who was in the red team, placed second in the 5K run. The first woman home was Carol Kelly.
The organisers, Life 97.5 were almost overwhelmed by the support of over 450 competitors as estimates were made for around 250.
Even at the 6 a.m. scheduled start, the Starcom Office at River Road was still being flooded by people dressed in green or red who were attempting to make last-minute registrations.
Consistent Dudley Harewood captured the 5K walk while the equally consistent Veta Batson won the women’s walk. CEO Dominic Beaubrun, Anthony Green, Graham Vaughan, pollster Peter Wickham, Vilmore “Villian” Johnson and Kevin “KB” Kleen were among the Starcom personalities taking part in the event.
The challenge aspect of the competition was won by staffer Dexter Hope, who topped Vaughan. The non-staffer Tito John rebounded for the green team by defeating Deon Thompson.
Line dancing to some of the most upbeat gospel tunes was not part of the competition but the participants applied equal gusto to dancing as MC Ronnie Clarke kept the crowd entertained in his own style.
A number of other activities such as kick boxing proved to be equally entertaining for the participants as well as the large number of spectators who remained for the post-competition action. (KB)
