(January 24th, 2020) After a very successful 2019 event Team Nolan the Pediatric Program of the Cayman Heart Fund is organizing their second annual HEART WARRIORS & ANGELS BEACH WALK during and in honour of February 2020 Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) Awareness Week and in memory of their son Nolan who passed away on January 25, 2018 from a complex CHD. The event will take place on Sunday February 9th at 7:00 am Location: Public Beach Cabana #5, #6

Registration fee: CI$25 (event t-shirt included).

Warriors and Angels costumes for all ages are welcome.

Additionally, the event will include complementary light refreshments, face painting great raffle prizes and much more.

This is a fun, family friendly, pet friendly walk that will raise awareness for the #1 birth defect, CHD. There is no cure for CHD, but your contribution will be long lasting in our efforts to fund the support of local families with CHD babies. Your support would truly be an investment in our community. For registration please email [email protected] or [email protected] or call 9361717

Team Nolan’s mission is to champion their goals of raising local CHD awareness and financially assisting local families with CHD babies; through fund raising efforts during their initiatives such as their annual HEART WARRIORS & ANGELS BEACH WALK and KIDFEST events. In February 2019 Team Nolan donated the Nolan Evans Memorial Bench to Health City’s main lobby, which illustrates CHD awareness messages for all to see when passing through the hospital’s lobby. In October of 2019 Team Nolan was able to cover the full cost of the purchase of a critically needed infant transport incubator for the Health Services Authority’s – neonatal intensive care unit.

Ms. Evans expressed her gratitude for His Excellency Governor Martyn Roper’s continued support of Team Nolan’s initiatives. This year’s beach walk is proudly sponsored by Logic, Davenport Development, Walkers, Vistra, Saxon, Hurley’s Media. ISE-Ltd., The Lund Team, Reed Engineers and Baraud Development.
