Join the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC) as we kick off the festive season with the annual Jingle Bell 5K 10K Walk/Run on Sunday 1 December 2019. The much-anticipated event will begin and end at Holiday Inn, Safe Haven and to add to the festivities of the holiday season, a breakfast will follow along with an opportunity to meet Santa.
This is a powerful cause for our community as CICC works tirelessly towards bringing an end to domestic violence and abuse. Michelle Lockwood, CICC Board Member and Chair of the Fundraising Committee said, “The Jingle Bell run is our longest running fundraiser, with walkers and runners embracing the festivities that the holiday season brings. We are moved every year by the generosity and support of our sponsors, participants and volunteers as we recognize the power and unity a community can create when moving together”.
2018 was the event’s largest turnout to date with over 550 participants and hope to increase these numbers for this year. Raffle prizes will be available for race participants and this year will have a special prize for our best decorated tree race shirt.
The CICC is fundraising to build a new shelter for local victims and their children, as the current shelter no longer meets the needs and the increase of victims that are seeking shelter.
And when a situation like this happens, involving a public figure in a public place, the violence issue, way too long on the back burner, is brought into sharp relief. Perhaps this is what Malcolm Gladwell would call ‘the tipping point’.
Registration is now open on www.caymanactive.com/jingle. CI$25 pre-registration and CI$30 day of the event. Sponsorship opportunities for all levels are available to support this event. Please visit https://www.cicc.ky/events or contact email@example.com for more information.
The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is a charitable organization that provides support to all victims of domestic violence via various services and programmes focusing on domestic and sexual abuse.
