The annual St. Patrick’s Day 5K Irish Jog held on March 17 attracted over 900 runners, walkers and strollers in a marvellous show of community spirit.
This was the third largest turn-out in the event’s 17-year history, and all proceeds totalling CI$9,290 were donated to the Women’s Resource Centre.
The event is co-sponsored each year by Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited and Grand Cayman Beach Suites.
‘It was wonderful to see so many enthusiastic participants partake in Cayman’s most popular fun walk/run for charity,’ said Rhonda Serrano of Butterfield.
‘We keep the entry fee low at just $10 per person so that we can raise as much money as possible for charity, and we are pleased to be able to support the Women’s Resource Centre this year.’
Participants received a T-shirt and were eligible to win one of several fabulous spot prizes, including Waterford crystal, sunset sails, dinners for two and spa services.
There were free hats, face stickers, wigs and other fun wear for everyone. Complimentary food and refreshments were available after the event.
At the cheque presentation were Marina Flynn of Grand Cayman Beach Suites and Rhonda Serrano and Rebecca Ebanks of Butterfield who presented the Irish Jog proceeds to Cindy Blekaitis of the Women’s Resource Centre.
