  • The 2017 DG’s 5K Challenge raised $85,000 for the YMCA of the Cayman Islands.

    Deputy Governor Franz Manderson said “I am delighted we raised such a huge sum of money for such a tremendous cause. The YMCA does great work with the youth in our community and I am very happy that we are able to support them with a donation that has exceeded all our expectations.”

    Mr. Manderson revealed the huge fund-raising total during a reception at Government House held as a mark of gratitude to sponsors, the DG’s 5K Challenge organising committee and event volunteers. The cash will be used to build a ropes challenge course in Grand Cayman, which will provide an alternative to classroom-style learning in areas proven to increase self-esteem, confidence and team-building skills.
