This year's event will focus on encouraging persons to build strong and long lasting communities by supporting causes and programmes that help contribute to a healthier Barbados.
With the growing number of health cases and deaths linked to non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the Nation Publishing Co. Ltd is continuing its commitment to promoting healthy living with events such as the Nation Funathlon.
According to a report published by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO), 76% of all premature deaths (ages 30 to 69 years) are caused by NCDs.
The report also noted the the four major NCDs are Cardiovascular diseases, Cancers, Diabetes and Chronic Respiratory diseases.

Your support helps raise money for organisations who are involved in providing much needed support to our citizens. Proceeds from the annual Walk & Run are donated to charities or organisations that support communities across the island through a variety of programmes and services.
Registered participants will be rewarded for creatively supporting the theme through signage and costumes. Additionally there are lots of great prices for the top walkers and runners in various categories.
The Nation Funathlon caters to persons of all ages and encourages participation in a healthy activity in a fun-filled, relaxing and family-oriented atmosphere.
