Date set for Stride’07

Break out your 2007 calendars and mark the date for Stride Against Cancer 2007.

The Cayman Islands Cancer Society has announced that Sunday, 14 January will be the date for Stride ’07. Stride is the Cancer Society’s annual half marathon walk/run and one of the Society’s biggest annual fundraising event.

Now in its 13th year, Stride is a non-competitive event for the entire family. Participants have the option of walking or running either a half marathon (13.1 miles) or the short course (6.5 miles). The longer distance is slated to begin at 6am and the shorter distance at 7am.

In addition, the Society plans to once again hold a Stride event in schools island-wide on Friday, 12 January. The 2006 event saw students in almost every school on Grand Cayman join in to raise funds that are used in the battle against cancer in the Cayman Islands.

Progressive Distributors and Fosters Food Fair have signed on as Premier Sponsors of the event.

The Society is seeking additional sponsors and has developed a Sponsorship Pack for prospective sponsors. There are a number of ways to become involved and these are outlined in the package.
