Triple C event had family spirit

The walkers and runners of the annual Triple C Ena Merren Memorial 5K Walk/Run competed in the “Day of Kings Race” at Public Beach on Saturday morning.

There was considerable support from Triple C parents, staff, students, alumni, friends, and corporate teams – particularly CUC and PricewaterhouseCooper. With participants of all ages, it was truly a family affair.

Jennifer Allen, a Triple C alumni and the school’s vice-principal, said, “It was great to see our parents, past Triple C graduates, staff and the general public come and support this great cause that will make a difference in a child’s life. We hope to see this event grow each year with more support from our alumni family and the general public.”

All proceeds raised from this event will aid the Ena Merren Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is named after one of Triple C’s founders, Ena Merren, who assisted students in attending Triple C School when it first opened in 1941. Medals and certificates were presented to the overall female, male, boy and girl (18 and under) runners.

Chris Krohn won the race, Damian Pentney was second and Kel Thompson third. Fastest female was Kristina Bramwell, Norma Ebanks was second quickest female and Sarah Godfrey was third.

The fastest girl was Janisha Byrd and the Matthew Godfrey won the boys’ event.

Many participants took home gift certificates from Kirk Freeport, Grand Old House, Cobalt Coast, Book Nook, Books & Books, Christian Enlightenment Centre, Godfrey’s Enterprise, Office Supply, Regal Cinemas (Camana Bay), Tea Time in Cayman, Pizza Hut, and Wendy’s.

Allen said, “We want to say a special thank you to our major sponsors Norman Bodden, Bodden & Bodden Attorneys-At-Law, Caribbean Utilities Company and Cayman National Bank and to all our prize sponsors.
