Launching the airline’s 46th anniversary celebrations, Cayman Airways employees and their friends and families recently staged their first annual charitable 5k Fun Run/Walk, lacing up in support of Feed our Future - a local-based charity with the mission to provide children in need with free school meals.
Fabian Whorms, President and CEO of Cayman Airways, says the objective was to bring CAL employees together for a morning of fun, team-building and exercise, in support of a good cause.
“This is a very special time of year for Cayman Airways as we celebrate our 46th anniversary and reflect on our support for the Cayman community over the past year. I am proud of all the staff who came out to support Feed our Future and participate with their colleagues, friends, and families.”
Mr. Whorms said that throughout each year, Cayman Airways invests and sponsors many events within the local community. “Our culture of caring extends beyond our offices, and it was great to host the Fun Run/Walk to actively involve all our employees. Together we raised CI$778 for Feed our Future.”
Stacy VanDevelde, Chairwoman of Feed Our Future, said: “Feed Our Future was honored to be the chosen charity to benefit from this unique Cayman Airways event which brought together their management and staff in support of needy children in Cayman and express our sincere appreciation for their generosity. We are always inspired by such community driven initiatives which further support our mission of connecting children in Cayman to nutritious food when at school.”
Cayman Airways proudly contributes to the sustainable growth and development of the local economy and people of the Cayman Islands, and supports over 300 events and organizations annually through community funding and sponsorships.
The fun run/walk started and ended at the airline’s headquarters building at 91 Owen Roberts Drive, looping around industrial park, and was open to all levels of participants.
