Cayman Islands Marathon organisers have announced that the primary school which brings the most students out to the will win a healthy treat for their school courtesy of TCBY.
TCBY, which offers delicious soft serve yogurts and sorbet, hand scooped yogurt, smoothies and yogurt cakes and pies, will be throwing a party for the winning school at the school.
‘We are thrilled that TCBY has agreed to host a party for the winning school in the Kids Fun Run competition,’ said Race Director Rhonda Kelly.
‘TCBY offers a healthy and delicious alternative to our children at a time when the childhood obesity levels are rising in the Cayman Islands, and parents are struggling to get their kids to eat healthier and lead a more active lifestyle.
‘We think that this sends a good message to both kids and parents that healthy food can also be tasty, and we thank TCBY for their community spirit.’
‘TCBY is pleased to partner with the Cayman Islands Marathon to promote healthy eating and living to our children,’ said Lori Ann Foley, owner of TCBY.
‘We offer a variety of flavours of low fat and fat free yogurts with toppings that the lucky winners of the Kids Fun Run will thoroughly enjoy. We look forward to visiting the winning school and treating them to some delicious fun.’
