(CNS Local Life): The 10th annual Breeze Fusion 5K walk/run, set for 5 November, will for the first time include a leg for residents of Cayman Brac three weeks later. The race, organised by Radio Cayman and Breeze FM, has been held since 2007, with proceeds supporting the non-profit National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Funds from this year’s Grand Cayman race will also benefit the East End Primary School and the Edna Moyle Primary School in North Side. In Cayman Brac, the event will assist with raising funds to support the non-profit Harmony Learning Centre, founded in 2011 to provide assistance to adults with disabilities, in the form of educational and vocational programming designed to help them achieve their full potential.

Paulette Conolly, deputy director of Radio Cayman, said, “Breeze Fusion is a family event we are proud (of). It warms my heart to see how the community comes together to support the causes the money raised go to help make the lives of others better. This year as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our event I am imploring the community to come out and make this year our biggest and best ever.”

Zeta Bodden, an avid supporter of the Breeze Fusion race who is taking part in the upcoming race, said, “I have participated in every Breeze Fusion event, because I love Radio Cayman and the event supports worthy causes. This is a great event for walkers, as it offers a healthy and great community walk event.

“I would really encourage children to participate in the Breeze Fusion, since it’s a healthy lifestyle opportunity, teaches them to support worthy causes, and can be great awareness for their school and community.”

The race will take place at Smith Barcardere in South Sound and the first annual Brac Breeze leg will start and end at Public Beach on the South Side.  Walkers will start at 6:30am and runners at 6:45am.

Registration is $20 for adults and $10 for students 16 and under.  All those taking part will get goodie bags and participation medals, with the first, second and third place finishers receiving medals. There will also be a draw for door prizes.

Registration forms are available online at the Radio Cayman and CaymanActive websites. For more information or to become a corporate sponsor or volunteer, email Radio Cayman or call 949-7799
