Grand Cayman (Wednesday, 28 November 2018) The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA” or “the Authority”) held its second annual 5K & 10K Charity Walk/Run in May earlier this year, and the Authority is proud to note that this year’s proceeds surpassed the amount raised last year. This time around, the event raised a total of CI$18,150. The funds were donated to the literacy and numeracy programmes within various local government primary schools.
Recognising the importance of giving children a strong educational foundation, CIMA’s Managing Director Mrs. Cindy Scotland said, “It’s not a secret that a good education has the power to change lives. Literacy and numeracy are important aspects of any child’s development. Therefore, CIMA takes great pride in helping to ensure that young people are provided with adequate resources to acquire these skills from early on. We owe much thanks to the local community and participants for their continued support.”
The Authority also extends special thanks to its event sponsors: Insurance Managers Association of Cayman (IMAC), Deloitte, DMS, Cayman National, Island Heritage Insurance, Cayman Islands Compliance Association (CICI) and Walkers. Other supporting groups were: Captain Marvin’s, World Gym, Winners Circle, Comfort Suites, Calypso Grill, Rubis, Cayman Turtle Center, Casanova, Kirk Freeport, Luca, along with many other companies that donated raffle prizes.
