Jamaican-Led Foundation In US Hosts 5K Run For Cancer Patient

With a vision to pass on the love, the KaGra Foundation in South Florida has touched many lives over the last 17 years.

It began after founder Derry-Ann Morgan lost her best friend, Kameisha Grant, in whose memory the foundation is named, as she called herself ‘KaGra’.

“She went to bed and just didn’t wake up. She was 22 years old. She was the only child for her dad and had just finished studies at The University of the West Indies. It was not anything that we were prepared for,” Morgan reflected.

“It was her dream, and when she was no longer here to do it, I thought the way to honour her was to attempt to do some of the things she wanted to do. I did not set out to start a foundation; it just grew into that,” she added.

Morgan was born and raised in St Catherine, Jamaica, and credits her mother and grandmother for how she operates the charity.
