WHY: We raise funds for deserving students

The CB Group UWI Virtual Run is an annual fundraiser for The University of the West Indies Scholarship Programme. Now in its 9th year, the event has awarded 300 scholarships to academically outstanding students in dire financial need. Most are the first in their families to attend an institution of higher education and some their communities. They continually express their appreciation for the opportunities afforded them as a result of this event as these scholarships have made a seismic change in their lives.

Registration is open to every one! From brand-new runners to experienced racers and everyone in between can sign up, and be active while supporting a noble cause.
