The Signia Footsteps Challenge: Changing Lives One Step at a Time

Seeking to become more involved in the 50th Anniversary of Independence Celebrations, Signia Financial partnered with The 50th Anniversary of Independence Celebrations Secretariat, Gildan and Alka10 Water to put plans in motion, before literally running with it. With March being dedicated to Health & Wellness under the “I Pledge…” programme, we hosted our very first 5K Run/Walk and Health Extravaganza – The Signia Footstep Challenge.

The registration process was as easy as 1,2,3, with interested persons being offered online and on-site registration options. Participants then collected their packages, inclusive of a t-shirt and wrist band in yellow or blue. The proceeds from registration were donated to the Diabetes Association of Barbados and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Barbados.

On March 20th, 2016 at 3:00PM, Jubilee Gardens was a hive of activity as the health extravaganza began, while others anticipated the start of the main event, including out brand ambassadors Ian Webster, Neesha Woodz and Tionne Hernandez. When the starter’s gun went off for the first time, registered runners dashed off to set the pace along the Bridgetown route. The walkers then took their mark and followed suit. Afterwards, victorious competitors were awarded with prizes while the crowd of participants were treated to a cool—down line dancing session which was conducted by an instructor of the Genesis Dance Studio.
