Nairobi, 27th November, 2023
Nairobi City County Executive for Talent, Skills Development and Care Rosemary Kariuki flagged off the second edition of the Jubilee Live Free Race outside the Governors’ office, City Hall Way.
In October 2023 Jubilee Insurance and Exigent Limited launched the second edition of the Jubilee Live Free Race. This follows the three-year title sponsorship of the Jubilee Live Free Race by Jubilee Insurance valued at KES 20 million; KES 10 million in cash paid towards the event planning and a further KES 10 million on the advertising and promotion.
Said the County Executive “As we embark on this thrilling journey, let’s recognize the dedication and hard work each cyclist has invested to reach this point. The Jubilee Live Cycling Race is not just about speed and strength; it’s a testament to the endurance that these athletes have cultivated through countless hours of training and discipline.”
“The increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related illnesses is a growing concern, affecting families and placing an additional strain on the healthcare infrastructure of the nation. Factors such as physical inactivity, unhealthy diet and harmful use of alcohol continue to aggravate the risk of NCDs. In the face of escalating prevalence of lifestyle diseases, acknowledging the critical role of physical activity is a pivotal step towards fostering a healthier society. As Nairobi County we support this initiative as health is in line with the governor’s manifesto” She said.
Ms. Kariuki said “The significance of physical activity cannot be understated. The Jubilee Live Free Race will not only drive awareness on how exercise contributes to our overall well-being but also provide an opportunity for families to be physically engaged through the cycling sport,”
The leadership of jubilee Dr. Julius Kipng’etich Regional Jubilee Holdings Chief Executive Officer,, Carole Ndung’u Group Head of Marketing and Communications and Jubilee leadership from across East Africa were all in attendance.
