(CNS): The Rotaract Blue club of the Cayman Islands will be hosting a Family Fun Day event on Saturday, 25 October, at the Airport Park. This event is a continuation of the club’s Open Arms programme, which aims to create community awareness of different disabilities and to integrate individuals with disabilities into the community.

According to a release from the club, the Rotaract Blue Open Arms Committee hopes to change society’s perceptions and educate everyone on the fact that those with disabilities deserve to be respected and provided with the opportunities to learn and grow. The programme saw success with the first Annual Rotaract Blue Open Arms Awards Ceremony, which was held on 12 July 2008 to honour caregivers and educators of those with disabilities.

The committee hopes to build on this success with the Family Fun Day event this weekend. This event will provide an opportunity for those with special needs to have fun with their families, members of Rotaract Blue and the wider community. Gates open at 11:00 am and the fun will continue until 6:00 pm. The Family Fun Day will feature a bounce-a-castle, lots of games, cotton candy, snow cones and barbeque. There is no admission charge.

Rotaract Blue Open Arms Committee member ShakiraGourzong had this message for the public, “I would like to encourage members of the community to come out and support this important event. It will be a day filled with fun for the entire family!” All the proceeds will benefit the Sunrise Adult Training Centre and Maple House.

Rotaract is a programme which is recognized on an international level and is designed for young professionals who want to make a difference. Rotaract Blue is one of the newest Rotaract initiatives in the Caribbean. They are proudly sponsored by Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central and under their guidance have become the second established Rotaract Club in the Cayman Islands.
