You will be included in a members only Facebook group where you can connect with other runners as well as staff at CCMI. You will have your own fundraising page that you can share with friends, family, and acquaintances to support your cause and raise money for CCMI’s healthy reefs campaign.
All participants pay their own entry fee to register; contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a code that will take 10% off registration fees for running with CCMI in the Walkers Cayman Islands Marathon.
There is no minimum amount that participants need to raise for CCMI; however, participants need to raise a minimum of $250 to receive a complimentary Reef Relief Squad tech shirt/tank.
All proceeds will go to support efforts such as CCMI’s Healthy Reefs campaign, which is a series of important field survey, education, and outreach activities that promote our understanding of the state of coral reefs in the Cayman Islands, as well as other efforts such as coral restoration and education programmes at the Little Cayman Research Centre.
