EnviroWalk to be held next month

A 5K walk organised by the Miss World Cayman Islands Committee to promote the environment will be held on 11 Aug.

The EnviroWalk was rescheduled from 30 June because of inclement weather.

The walk will be held at SafeHaven, where Governor Martyn Roper and Miss World Cayman Islands Kelsie Woodman-Bodden will join this year’s pageant contestants on the walk, which begins at 7am.

Funds raised from the EnviroWalk will go towards the Miss World Cayman Islands pageant and to environmental projects. The committee also will make a donation to a local environmental non-profit organisation. The beneficiary of the donation will be announced on the day of the walk.

Entry is $25 for adults and $12 for those under 12. Group rates of $20 per person are available for 10 or more. Sign up online at www.caymanactive.com.
