Local bodybuilders competed in the recent Fitness Extravaganza, which apart from giving them an opportunity to flex their muscles, also raised money for a good cause.
Fitness Extravaganza/Monster Nutrition 2014 made a donation hand over to the Special Olympics Cayman Islands on Monday.
The fitness show three weeks ago was at the ARC in Camana Bay. Competition categories included men and women in divisions for bikini, physique and figure, and featured two special bodybuilding guest posers.
Overall winner was Jose Luis Bush.
The show provided a stage for locals to showcase their hard work in the gym and also promoted health and fitness to the local community.
“We are so excited at the success of our first annual fitness show,” said Jenique Smith, who promoted with her brother Jason. She added, “Due to the high attendance from the public, we are able to donate towards helping the athletes of SOCI reach their goals. It is always a wonderful experience when you can contribute back to your community.”
Jenique handed over the donation to Special Olympics athlete Kanza Bodden and her mother Nancy Bodden. The SOCI athletes plan to attend the 2015 Special Olympics Games in Los Angeles and will use this donation towards funding that trip.
