Grand prizes at final stroke and stride

The final day of the Ogier Stroke & Stride is on Wednesday, two weeks late because of Hurricane Gustav’s intervention. It promises to be a great finale.

Denise Gower is one of the event’s organisers. She said: ‘We would like to thank our record number of competitors as over 200 people have taken to the field this year, which is by far the largest Stroke & Stride in Cayman history.

‘All of our amazing volunteers have worked very hard to keep everyone injury free and we are exceptionally thankful for that.

‘We have a number of great prizes up for grabs, including three month memberships at World Gym and a bunch of gift certificates at Sport’s Supply to give away. These will be random prizes in addition to the grand prize of a $700 voucher with Cayman Airways to the person who raises the most money in pledges for our two charities – Cayman Hospice Care and the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre.’

Gower encourages competitors to bring their pledge forms and the money to the registration desk before the race and the winner will be announced at the end of the race with the rest of the prizes. Some of the island’s fittest competitors are invovled, including Jasper Meikkelsen.

Sunset House has donated some post-race food to celebrate the incredible success of this event and racers are encouraged to stick around, have some food and a drink and enjoy the accomplishment of their race with their fellow competitors.
