Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority’s (“CIMA” or the "Authority”) 2021 annual 5K Charity Walk/Run proved to be another success, with the event raising $24,390.
Proceeds will benefit literacy and numeracy programmes at Joanna Clarke Primary School, George Town Primary School, and the Behaviour Support Services Unit.
As an advocate for childhood education, CIMA Managing Director, Mrs. Cindy Scotland plays an active role in this event each year and has made this cause a signature beneficiary because such programmes help to improve basic learning skills, which can lay the foundation for all students to succeed at school, at work and their daily lives. “Providing a strong educational foundation for our students is of the utmost importance and as a community, we should all be doing our part to ensure that each student is given the tools needed to succeed. I therefore encourage all citizens and residents of the Cayman Islands to join us again this year in support of this worthy cause.”
Last year’s event was also made possible through corporate sponsors: Deloitte, Alternative Investment Management Association, Cayman Islands Insurance Association, Insurance Managers Association of Cayman, Cayman Finance, Island Heritage, Maples Group, and Walkers, and over 15 restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, government agencies and small businesses.
Mrs. Scotland also extends special thanks to the CIMA organising committee and staff volunteers for their hard work and dedication to ensure a successful event.
