Nationwide Stride hoping for milestone in eleventh year

The Cayman Islands Cancer Society’s biggest annual fundraiser is back for its eleventh year, and organisers are hoping to break a record.

Cancer Society volunteers are busy putting together entry packets for the country wide event, including those iconic purple and gold t-shirts.

This year’s stride is four events in one, with strides in North Side, each of the sister islands, and the granddaddy of them all, the Seven Mile Stride.

The Cancer Society’s Jen Weber hopes to see more than 2,000 turn out this year’s event. She told Cayman 27 the money raised is put to good use.

“It raises a lot of money for us, which is important because the money raised from stride goes to help our financial aid patients. We are currently helping over 135 financial aid patients – that means people diagnosed with cancer who need our financial help. Just this week we had four new patients arrive,” said Ms. Weber.
