Jingle Bell event a record

More than 200 people hit the road for the third-annual Jingle Bell Walk and Run Saturday, bringing in a record $6,000 for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre.

‘It’s our best year yet,’ said Estella Scott, executive director of the CICC. The funds will be put toward restoring the shelter for victims of domestic abuse, which was extensively damaged during the hurricane. It’s expected to re-open its doors before Christmas.

The 3km-5km walk/run kicked off from King’s Sports Centre, winding its way along South Sound and finishing back at King’s. Santa was waiting at the finish line to greet participants as well as hand out goodies to youngsters.

Steve Jacoby and Emily Davies were the first male and female to finish the 5-K run, each receiving a $200 gift certificate from Body Works. Aaron Powell and Natalie Fleury won the 5-K run in the children’s category, receiving a $25 gift certificate from Hobbies and Books. Rob Jackson and Tammy Kelderman were the first male and female to cross the finish line in the 3-K run.

The event was sponsored by UBS Fund Services (Cayman) Ltd. and hosted by King’s Sports Centre.
