In this time of physical distancing, you may be looking for something to keep you active and moving – while also helping support coral reefs. CCMI invites you to take part in this special virtual event that can be done wherever you are in an effort to virtually travel to one, two or even all three of the Cayman Islands! Starting 8 April, log your walking, running, swimming and cycling miles, seeing how far you can go by the end of the challenge on World Oceans Day (8th June). While you are out enjoying some fresh air and activity, take pictures of your efforts and post them in our special Facebook group, telling us how you are doing, using #ReefReliefSquad as part of your post.

Each registered participant will receive a special edition Reef Relief Squad tech tank top (US $40 registration option). Shirts will be mailed in early June (pending mail service situation). We hope you will wear it proudly to show that you are a supporter of CCMI and coral reefs. These special shirts will be available in unisex and women’s styles. A no-shirt registration option is also available for US $25 for those who wish to participate but prefer to not receive a shirt.

You will also receive a digital certificate with your distance travelled upon completion of the Three Island Challenge.

At the end of the Challenge, we’ll enter the names of everyone who logs any activity into a drawing for a special Healthy Reefs prize pack!

We hope you enjoy this fun virtual event that is designed to get our supporters out and moving while also supporting CCMI’s efforts for learning about, protecting and restoring coral reefs. CCMI remains focused on our mission to unlock the secrets of coral resiliency in the face of changing environmental conditions, a challenge that remains of extremely important to the future health of our oceans.
