CNS Local Life(CNS Local Life) The Save Our Youth Foundation (SOY) is holding their second annual Monster Dash 5K Walk/Run fundraiser at Camana Bay, Saturday, 22 October. Registration on the day begins at 6:15am with both walkers and runners starting at 7am, but taking off in opposite directions. All participants are encouraged to wear costumes for the family-friendly event; the race is open to all, with strollers and kids welcome.

The race will comprise a loop through Camana Bay and the Cayman International School, starting and ending between Cayman National Bank and the main Dart office at 89 Nexus Way.

The entry fee is CI$20 for adults and CI$15 for students (age 10-18), with children under 10 free. Registration on the day of the event will cost CI$25 for adults. There will be prizes for best overall costume, best family costume, first adult runner and first student runner. Water and snacks will be provided at the end of the race, with a water stop at the turnaround.

All proceeds from the event will help fund SOY programmes, including school SOY Clubs, which offer forums for students to discuss issues affecting them and suggest possible solutions to school administrators.

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman has been involved with the Monster Dash from the outset. “Working with the SOY Foundation is a great partnership for us as the organisation focuses on involving young people and helping them to design a better future for themselves and the community,” said Janette Goodman, the hotel’s Director of Human Resources.

“We are delighted to be participating and building on the success of their annual fundraiser, the Monster Dash. We are aiding students build skills to incorporate into building healthy and happy families. We know the event will be successful and fun for all.”

Save Our Youth is a non-profit organisation founded in 2005 with the mandate of empowering Cayman’s youth by facilitating them to be positive leaders, entrepreneurs and law-abiding citizens who value themselves. The programmes and initiatives SOY has launched since its establishment include the annual Football Extravaganza/Family Fun Day, SOY Achievement Medallion Awards, SOY Club, SOY Community Service Awards, SOY Student of the Month Awards and SOY Second Chance Programme.
