This year’s National Heroes Day theme is sports and it’s recognizing members of the community for their contribution to developing sports in Cayman.
“It was a lot of nominees, the highest ever, historically, so definitely I think in the area of sports, I think you will get a lot of people coming out because it’s so near and dear to them,” said Minister Seymour.
