Join Deputy Governor Franz Manderson at the 4th Annual DG’s 5K Challenge to run/walk for health. Help raise funds for the YMCA of the Cayman Islands to build a ropes challenge course which will provide an alternative to classroom-style learning in areas proven to increase self-esteem, confidence and team-building skills.

The Deputy Governor’s 5K Challenge is an annual event led by Deputy Governor Franz Manderson that brings together civil servants, private sector employees and members of the general public in a fitness and fundraising challenge. This is part of the Deputy Governor’s vision to have a healthier, more active and more socially engaged civil service while benefiting charitable organisations and initiatives in the Cayman Islands.
