Trinity School of Medicine's American Medical Students Association chapter recently took part in providing fitness assessments for participants in the first ever Glow Run, a night-time running event that recently took place on St. Vincent. The fun-run had its participants decked out in glow sticks, as well as irridescent and UV-reactive paints similar to the Color Run phenomenon in the US.
The event, hosted by Islandwide Fitness, was for diabetes awareness, a chronic issue for St. Vincent. Participants took off from the Richmond Hill Playing Field on Murray’s Road and moved on towards the SOV Restaurant in Villa. Before their departure, all runners were given medical checks for both blood sugar and blood pressure.
