(CNS Local Life): The fifth annual Feed Our Future Century Ride took riders on a 100-mile route around Grand Cayman, all in support of the charity, which provides more than 200 free school meals to children or families in need in the community. More than 90 participants, some solo and others in teams sharing the mileage, took part in the event, held last month.

SMP Partners once again supported the event, with staff members on duty at the Rum Point refreshment stand, marking the halfway stage of the race, which began and ended at Ristorante Pappagallo in West Bay, said a press release.

Stacey VanDevelde of Feed Our Future said the charity “exists to fund nutritionally balanced school meals to children in need in Cayman, with the goal of a hunger free future. This year’s Century Ride was another successful event with more than 90 participants and enough funds raised to fund 500 school meals.

“This would not be possible without the generosity of local firms like SMP. We’re so grateful to all of our partners, sponsors and supporters who all play an integral role in our continued success.”

Stephen Turner, CEO of SMP Partners (Caribbean region) said of his company’s involvement, “Feed Our Future is such an important local charity and we’re delighted to continue our support as it works to eliminate childhood hunger in Cayman. This year’s bike ride was another great community event which brought people from across the island together.

“We were very impressed with the cyclists as they tackled the 100-mile bike ride and thoroughly enjoyed providing some words of encouragement and well-needed refreshments at the halfway point.”
