Mayberry Investments Limited continues to maintain strong ties with the SW Isaac Henry Track and Field meet by signing on for a third year with a $250,000 sponsorship.

The meet is in honour of former principal of St Andrew Technical High School, the late Isaac Henry, who invested quite a bit in the field.

This year's staging will be held on Saturday, February 22 at the National Stadium, starting at 8:15 am.

Dionne Marie Harrison, Mayberry's digital marketing manager, gave the meet her blessings at the 2020 launch at the Knutsford Court Hotel on Thursday,

Harrison said,  "while this event has done a tremendous job in honouring the late Isaac Henry, past principal of St Andrew Technical High, it is also doing a tremendous service to Jamaica through perpetuating one of the many things for which the country is celebrated across the globe.”

“ Track and Field is as much a part of Jamaican people as ska, mento, and reggae and our youths especially have excelled in all of the above. We have maintained the most success per capita of any country in the world. To think such a small island, with only a handful of people, can impact the world in so many different ways is something worth celebrating,” Harrison further stated.

The meet will feature the mixed 4x400m relay, the first the event will take place in Jamaica since it makes its debut at the 2017 World Relays in the Bahamas.

There will be 71 events – 41 on the track and 30 in the field.
