More than 100 cyclists completed the Cayman Islands Cycling Association Century Ride, raising $4,000 for Feed our Future.
The ride, in April, “was very successful and surpassed our expectations,” said Craig Merren, president of the cycling association. “As a result we have already started planning next year’s event and plan to add other components, including a kids ride at Camana Bay as well as an off-road cycling event.”
Feed Our Future Chairwoman Stacey VanDevelde thanked all involved the ride. “It was a powerful demonstration of our community rallying together to combat hunger in Cayman’s schools,” she said. “Riding enthusiasts of all levels came out in droves to support our most vulnerable, our children.
“We sincerely appreciate the support of the sponsors, volunteers and riders who contributed to this event’s success and look forward to advancing our partnership with the Cayman Islands Cycling Association and its members.”
Raul Nicholson-Coe, cycling association treasurer, said, “We are proud to support Feed Our Future because of the important social need that they are fulfilling by providing nutritional meals to the less fortunate within our community. The funds raised from this event will provide almost 600 meals to these kids.”
