Universal Children’ Day run organised

The Department of Children and Family Services will host a 5K run/walk at 6am on Sunday, 24 Nov., at SafeHaven, to mark Universal Children’s Day.
The theme of the event is ‘I Have a Voice, Hear Me Roar’ and funds raised will go to families in need, according to organisers.
Participants can register at www.caymanactive.com/ucd or on 20 Nov., at the Government Administration Building entrance, from noon to 4pm. Registration is $15 for adults and $5 for children.
“Universal Children’s Day is observed globally to improve child welfare and to promote and celebrate children’s rights,” said DCFS Director Paulinda Mendoza-Williams. “The day also supports unity and awareness among children and their communities. DCFS wants the children of the Cayman Islands to feel comfortable using their voices to share their hopes, opinions and needs.”

  1. Why children can’t be children these days? All these runs and walks, fundraisers and awareness campaigns rob children of childhood.
    Children’s rights and welfare are not children’s problem. Allow them to play and remain worry free as long as you can. It is good for child psyche.
