The Save Our Youth Foundation is getting ready to host its fourth annual Monster Dash 5K Walk/Run fundraiser at Camana Bay, on Saturday, Oct. 20.
The race will follow a loop through Camana Bay and the Cayman International School, starting and ending between Cayman National Bank and the main Dart office at 89 Nexus Way. Both walkers and runners start at 7 a.m., but take off in opposite directions.
Organizers are urging all participants to wear costumes for the family-friendly event. The race is open to all, with strollers and kids welcome.
There will be prizes for best overall costume, best family costume and first runner. Water and snacks will be provided at the end of the race, with a water stop at the turnaround.
All proceeds from the event will help fund SOY programs, including school SOY clubs, which offer forums for students to discuss issues affecting them. SOY also brings in various mentors to motivate and inspire young people.
Club members perform community service and help to organize and promote the Monster Dash, and will be volunteering on the day.
Save Our Youth Foundation was founded in 2005 with the mandate to empower Cayman’s youth by facilitating them to be positive leaders, entrepreneurs and law-abiding citizens who value themselves.
The programs and initiatives SOY has launched since its establishment 13 years ago include the annual Football Extravaganza/Family Fun Day, SOY Achievement Medallion Awards, SOY Club, SOY Community Service Awards and SOY Student of the Month Awards.
