Irish Jog

The 14th annual St. Patrick’s Day 5K Irish Jog on Friday attracted over 800 participants, raising CI $8,775 for the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.

‘The Cayman Islands Cancer Society is grateful to Butterfield and the Hyatt for organising this event, which gave the whole community the opportunity to contribute to purchasing the digital mammogram, bringing us closer to our target goal of $400,000,’ said Dr. Sook Yin, medical director of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society. ‘This piece of machinery will benefit everyone in some way, as everyone has a mother, sister or dear lady friend.’

The Irish Jog is co-sponsored each year by Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited and Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman. Participants receive a keepsake T-shirt and giveaways, and they are eligible to win fabulous spot prizes awarded on a draw basis. This year’s grand prize was two round-trip airline tickets to Chicago on Cayman Airways with two nights’ Hyatt hotel accommodations. Complimentary food and refreshments are plentiful.

‘Butterfield Bank, along with the Hyatt, put three months of preparations into Cayman’s most popular and fun walk/run. I was delighted to be able to present the Cayman Cancer Society with a considerable donation, reflective of all the hard work that went into this event,’ said Monique Bush of Butterfield Bank.
