Boarders splashed out again

In the midst of all the Pirates Week activities, paddleboarders took time out last Sunday to raise awareness and funds for the Cayman Islands Diabetes Association.

This was the third year that Duane Magis has coordinated the fundraiser in memory of local businessman John Bunton.

Magis brought together a large number of local businesses for corporate sponsorship and a great raffle, as well as participants for the social paddle.

“Once again we are truly grateful to our sponsors for enabling us to raise vital funds for the work of the Diabetes Association,” Magis said.

“In particular, we would like to thank those in the heart of the paddleboarding community – Cayman Stand Up Paddle Co., Red Sail Sports, The Sweet Spot, Kirk Marine, Kite SUP Surf Cayman, White Sands and Blue Wave Surf Shop.

The work of the Diabetes Association is invaluable to those dealing with the illness, both as patients, care givers and medical professionals.

Other businesses who reached out to support the event were Surfside Bar and Grill who provided the venue for the fundraiser and additional corporate sponsors Genesis Trust, LG Contracting, Siena Tile, Flowers Steel Stud, King Imports, Caribbean Marine Services, Cayman First, Dart, Fiderus and CDG. Additional raffle prizes were donated by Ocean Dental Ltd., Dive Tech, Divers Down, Epic Divers, PDs, Lone Star, Dukes, Smoothie King, Ragazzi, Agua, and Funky Monkey.

The main raffle prize of a Laird Stand Up Paddle Board donated by Mega Systems Ltd. and Cayman Stand Up Paddle Co. was won by Janie Fleming. The year of unlimited yoga donated by Bliss Living Yoga was won by Jodie Dobson.

Magis said: “On behalf of the Cayman Islands Stand Up Paddle Association, I am really grateful to all those who came together for this event which raised over $8,000 for the Cayman Islands Diabetes Association.”
