All proceeds from the Cayman
Islands Marathon, will benefit the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps and the Cancer
Society but race organisers are encouraging runners to consider running for
whatever charity pulls at their own heartstrings.
“Running in aid of a charity is a
great way to motivate yourself and push forward when the training becomes
tedious or difficult,” says Rhonda Kelly, Race Director. “The fact that your
completion of the race will benefit people in need is always a great incentive.”
Runners can log on to the marathon
website and make a donation to one of the charities already listed or they can
contact the organisers to have a charity added to the list. Then the runner can send an email to friends and
loved ones to let them know about his/her intention to run and donations can
then be made in the runner’s name to that organisation.
“I encourage runners to find a
cause for which they feel passionate and make their run on 5 December count
even more,” said Kelly.
Indeed, every person participating
in the marathon helps a charity as funds from every runner registration is
donated to the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps and Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
Registration for the Cayman Islands
Marathon, half-marathon, four-person relay and Kids Fun Run is available on the
website. Participants can also do walk-in registration at the Kelly Holding
office in Selkirk Plaza.
