Santa 2014 3GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman: 26 November 2014: The charity fun-run of the year is almost upon us. On Sunday 14 December, hundreds of enthusiastic runners and walkers will be hitting the pavement at the Holiday Inn Resort in support of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and the great work it does assisting some of the community’s most vulnerable people.

Thanks to main sponsors Greenlight Re, Maples and Calder and LIME, this event is expected to raise over CI$40,000 which goes directly to fund the operations of the island’s only women’s emergency shelter.

Registration is CI$25 and includes a full breakfast on the beach as well as gifts from Santa for every child registered. The first 300 registrants also get a free t-shirt. Sponsors have also been very generous in offering raffle prizes. There will be Cayman Airways return tickets to Tampa and to Miami, a staycation with breakfast at the Westin and another from Comfort Suites, and vouchers for the island’s hottest restaurants up for grabs, but you have to be present to win.

Online registration is now live at www.caymancative.com. Registration will also be available at Cost U Less November 29 and Dec 6, Fosters Strand Dec 6 and Dec 13 and AL Thompson’s Dec 13.

Cayman Islands Crisis Centre fund-raising committee chair Melisa Johnson commented: “this event could not happen without the amazing support of the community and we want to give a very special thanks to all of the companies and individuals who have donated time and funding. This event is our major fundraiser for the year and the Centre relies heavily on it for its operations”.
