The Cayman swim community made a significant contribution to Cayman Loves Children (CLC) this month. Peter Mackay, president of the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association (CIASA), presented CLC members with a check for $1,220. The money was a joint donation from CIASA and the organizers of last month’s Bank of Butterfield Sea Swim.
Cayman Loves Children is a local group dedicated to raising awareness about the impact of severe poverty on children worldwide. All money raised by CLC is forwarded to UNICEF, said a spokesperson.
CLC members Marzeta Bodden and Adishree Mani thanked CIASA and all the swimmers who gave. They also applauded the compassion of sea swim organizer Bill McFarland for dedicating the race to CLC.
