Flashy Nation Sports Club donated $640 to the Special Needs Foundation Cayman following its third annual New Day 5k road run.
The race two weeks ago was from the Holiday Inn and took a route around North Sound Golf course. It was won by Toby Muchene. As a creative touch, participants dressed as their favorite superhero or villain.
Highly visible among the starters were superheroes Flash, Hulk, Thor, Batman, Spider-Man, Superman and other distinguished comic book characters.
More than 100 entered, and there was a short run for the kids as well.
The proceeds will be used to benefit Special Needs Foundation Cayman, in addition to ongoing community efforts and upcoming summer camps. The foundation supports all aspects of special needs: autism, attention deficit, learning disorder, Down syndrome and a range of learning and developmental disorders.
Flashy Nation Sports Club founder Kendall Ebanks said, “We love to give back, and I always feel it’s the best thing to do. It’s a good feeling being able to help.”
At the check handover last Thursday, Ebanks met Susie Bodden, the executive leader of the Special Needs Foundation of Cayman.
Ebanks said, “Flashy Nation Sports Club gives a special thanks to our sponsors that made the New Day 5k event possible.”
