Frano on the Mend

You may have heard the news that Reggae Marathon’s Race Director, Frano has been ill since New York.  Frano was hospitalized and is still undergoing treatment.  We are happy to report that he is on the mend with Frano posting this update on his condition recently:


I am deeply indebted to my family, friends and all well-wishers, both at home and abroad, who continue to send their love, prayers and best wishes for my recovery. I especially thank all those who donated blood when it was most needed.

I am making good progress and the news from my doctors is very reassuring as the prognosis remains positive.

As you can no doubt imagine, I am anxious to resume my regular activities in the shortest possible time, however, I am advised by my physicians to rest as I recuperate.

Please continue to pray for my speedy recovery and I thank you for your understanding and invaluable support.

Thank you!

In response, the outpouring from the Reggae Marathon Community has been fantastic.  Here are some of the comments fro Facebook:

Until next time…
