Limited “Hero Duck” capes are available for purchase at the Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run Secretariat at a cost of $1,000.

The special edition capes are being done in honour of the late Elva Ruddock, Jamaican comedienne, who served as the start line emcee at Sigma Run for the past five years. Ruddock lost her battle to the lupus disease last year.

This year the charity run, which is in its 21st year, is aiming to raise $52 million for three beneficiaries: The Lupus Foundation of Jamaica, May Pen Hospital Neonatal Unit and the Diabetes Association of Jamaica.

The ‘Hero Duck’ name is a nod to the hilarious and often-recounted story of when a cashier misspelled Elva’s name ‘E. Ruddock’ as ‘Hero Duck’ on an invoice.

“Elva was a big part of our Sigma Run Race day execution; she brought lots of light, love and laughter to the event and energized our participants at the start line before they began their 5K journey”, said Alysia White, Assistant Vice President, Group Marketing, Sagicor Group Jamaica and Team Lead for Sigma Run.

One of Elva’s close friends Christopher “Johnny” Daley will be the new start line emcee for the run, which will be happening on Sunday February 17 in New Kingston.

The Sagicor Sigma Run Secretariat is located on the ground floor at the R. Danny Williams building at 24-48 Barbados Avenue in New Kingston.

For further information on the run and how you can purchase one of the capes, persons can contact the Secretariat at 936-7980-2 or email SGJSigmaSecretariat@sagicor.com.
