The donation goes towards helping the event achieve its ambitious USD 70,000 fundraising target. All funds raised this year will be split equally between three charities; Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, Special Needs Foundation Cayman and Alex Panton Foundation.

Now in its sixth year The DG’s 5K Challenge is an annual walk/run led by Deputy Governor Hon. Franz Manderson, and brings together civil servants, private sector employees and members of the general public in a fitness and fundraising challenge. The event 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.

Senior Business Development Manager Claire Lloyd-Hickey met with the Deputy Governor on 5th September to present Appleby’s donation. Mr. Manderson thanked all the sponsors for their generosity in continuing to support the event and added “I am thrilled we are on track with our ambitious fund-raising goal this year and can provide real support to the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, Special Needs Foundation Cayman and Alex Panton Foundation. Providing tangible assistance to great causes like these is testament to the spirit of Caymankind in both the public and private sectors’.

Cayman Office Managing Partner Bryan Hunter commented; ‘Appleby are pleased to continue our association with this extremely popular and worthwhile event that raises money for some of the most vulnerable members of our community whilst also promoting exercise and good health. Appleby is passionate about building strong relationships with local community groups and supporting initiatives in each of the jurisdiction in which we operate. We wish all those participating in Deputy Governor’s 5k challenge every success’.

The popular event was held on 15 September in Cayman Brac with a second run to be held on 29 September in Grand Cayman.
