The Movers for Life nonprofit organization celebrated and rewarded its members and volunteers for their achievements on Saturday.

More than 80 people attended the event at the George Town Yacht Club.

Several people spoke of their efforts to improve their health. Sayda Hernandez was very happy with the top award for consistency, high level of volunteerism and team support throughout the year.

“I thank the Movers team for doing such a great job and providing this motivational support to the entire community,” she said.

On the topic “Exercise is health,” Dr. Renisha David provided insight into how studies have shown that even 30 minutes a day of exercise has seen a significant reduction and impact on many diseases.

Movers for Life founder Winston Sobers said the awards and appreciation ceremony is just one part of the organization’s mandate to provide motivational support for the community.

“Today, more than 300 people meet in nine locations around Grand Cayman to connect, network and get fit. “Many are recognizing this is a lifestyle journey and not a quick fix,” he said.
