Walk/run to benefit children’s cancer fund

| 11/10/2011

(RBC):  RBC Royal Bank of Canada is sponsoring fundraising walk/runs across the Caribbean to benefit the RBC/RBTT Children’s Cancer Fund. In Grand Cayman, the walk will start at 6:30am and the run will follow at 6:45am from the RBC Royal Bank of Canada House at #24 Shedden Road in George Town. RBC invites community members to join RBC employees in the event to raise funds for this important cause. “Pediatric cancer is a terrible disease and families often need financial support when their children are treated,” said Jason Waters, Vice President and Country Head of the Cayman Islands “Through these fundraising events across the Caribbean, our goal is to raise at least $25,000 from this collaborative effort.

Though only three years old, the Children’s Cancer Fund has already assisted children in four counties, including Grand Cayman. It has also provided support for foreign testing of biopsy samples, which results in quicker diagnosis and earlier treatment of cancer when identified. “The fund has made a major difference in the lives of the families helped,” said Waters. “We look forward to the participation of many clients, employees and community members in order to raise funds and awareness for this important cause.”

The cost to walk or run in the event is CI$25 for adults and free for children under 12. The registration fee includes a T-Shirt and water bottle. Prizes will also be awarded for the top 3 fundraisers and the top 3 runners.
