The Flowers One Mile Sea Swim is this Saturday, 17 June. The course runs along Seven Mile Beach, starting at the beach adjacent to the Ritz Carlton and finishing at Courtyard Marriott (just beyond Public Beach).
The race will benefit the Cayman Islands chapter of Habitat for Humanity, specifically focusing on the building of a new house for a single mother of two in West Bay. All funds raised by the swim will go toward the project. Additionally, Flowers Block Factory has pledged to donate all the concrete blocks needed for construction.
Some $100,000 worth of random prizes will be awarded to finishers, including 40 Cayman Airways Tickets and Digicel phones.
Swimmers must register by Friday, 16 June. There will be no race-day registration. The process can be done online or any time at the Flowers Block office (Industrial Park). Last-chance registration will be 16 June at the Brasserie (Cricket Square) from noon-2pm and at the Courtyard Marriott (Seven Mile Beach) from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
The 2006 Flowers One Mile Sea Swim is sanctioned by the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association.
