STRIDE592 to launch with inaugural MilesForMoms 5K walk/run

Supporting NGOs who support women, single moms and families

In an effort to demonstrate their commitment to building a healthier Guyana, STRIDE592 is set to launch with a 5K walk/run dubbed “MilesForMoms“, slated for Saturday, May 13, 2023, the day before Mother’s Day. 


As its name suggests, this inaugural 5K race was created to celebrate women, especially those who mothered and nurtured the society we exist in, and promote a culture of healthy living to foster longer lives.

Following a route that starts from the National Park with a pre-race soca warm-up, the walk/race will move along the seawall road and back down the historic Carifesta Avenue, ending at the National Park with a post-race festival featuring local businesses, food, drinks, kids’ games, entertainment, and health activations.

Organiser of the activity and Founder of STRIDE592, Onika Jervis said that MilesForMoms is just the beginning of a lifetime commitment to executing professional walks/runs/timed-events of this nature. In fact, she explained that STRIDE592 was founded to sponsor year-round fun walking and running events to enhance the exposure of the community to the health, social and economic benefits of moving.

STRIDE592 is committed to building a healthier Guyana, one person, one family and one community at a time. That means while we are walking, running and moving, we will be  investing our time and assets to bring awareness to issues and provide resources to sustainable programs and organisations that are improving the quality of life for people who need it the most,” Jervis said. 

For the event next month, she said they have partnered with Healthcare International to elevate the conversation about health benefits of walking, running and moving.”

This inaugural 5K aims to attract seasoned runners, walkers, youth teams, fitness gurus, and newcomers alike. Companies and organizations are invited you to join us to showcase that moving can bring diverse groups of people together in a healthy and fun way.

Registration fees for the 5K walk/run start at $5,000 GYD, and $1,000 GYD for the children’s 1 mile run/walk. The first 100 registrants will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. Upon completion of the walk/run, event participants will receive a finisher medal and be treated to a post-event gathering in the National Park with curated food and beverage experiences, music and entertainment. This event will feature a kids zone and a health zone with blood pressure screenings and a fresh vegetable station.  Click HERE to register.

The event will support NGO partners with its resources: Friends Who Care ( Guyana) and The Guyana Foundation to bring awareness to the missions of the organizations: Supporting and helping women, single mothers, children and families to be safe, to grow and to thrive.

Family and friends not participating are invited to join the fun by cheering for their favourite moms and friends along the route or joining at the post-race celebration party at the National Park..
