The 10th annual Breeze Fusion 5K Walk / Run is set for November 5th.  The event organized by Radio Cayman and Breeze FM, will also expand this year, with the population of Cayman Brac seeing their 1st annual leg of the race on 26 November.

Since inception in 2007, proceeds from the Breeze Fusion race have supported the National Council for Voluntary Organizations (NCVO), an independent, non-profit, charitable organization which engages in projects to meet the ever-growing needs of the community.

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 1st Annual event will assist with raising funds to support the Harmony Learning Centre.  The centre was founded in 2011 and is the only non-profit organization on the Brac working 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 expressed her satisfaction saying “Breeze Fusion is a family event we are proud. 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.

Ms. Zeta Bodden, an avid supporter of the Breeze Fusion race is pleased to be participating in her 10th event.  She stated, “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.”
