George Town, Grand Cayman, : On Sunday 27th May over 300 people came together to take part in the 4th installment of the Wind of Hope Walk/Run bringing in over $5,000 in support of healthy eating habits of children living at the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home.

The Wind of Hope (WHO) is a charitable organization founded in March 2014. Its main aim is to deliver charitable contributions to non-profit organizations, groups of individuals, or individuals with causes that positively impact lives.

“We are so excited and happy that we could really come together as a team that we could accomplish that great task,” said Founder and Wind of Hope President, .

The non-profit group successfully raised funds in the past for the Pines Retirement Home and the Cayman Islands Red Cross through its annual walk/run event and this year monies will go to the pantry budget.

An athlete himself who also trains fellow runners, Mr. Williams says this is his passion. “This is what I want to do; using my talent along with the passion to train people to lead a healthier lifestyle is why I chose to put on the 5k, but I have a passion for the children also,” he said.
