Brackers ride for charity

| 23/04/2009

(CNS): Over $5000 dollars was raised which will go into the Rotary Club of Cayman Brac’s Paloma relief fund when 55 Brackers got on their bikes for the club’s 27th annual Bike-a-thon on Saturday, 28 March, who rode the 11 mile course from Spot Bay to the West End Community Park. First past the post again this year was Michael Hundt, who finished in 29 minutes, but he faced stiff challenge from a pack of 5 or 6 serious cycling enthusiasts.

A release from the club notes that it was especially pleasing to see so many parents out riding with their children. The prize for the biggest family riding went to the Fredericks of WestEnd. The oldest rider was Wallace Platts and youngest 5 year old Caleb Frederick. Winners for the school aged riders were Simon Watson, Shanelle Frederick, Eval Miller and Camille Brown. The fastest lady prize went to Vivian Williams. This year the trophy for the school which collected the most sponsorship went to Creek and Spot Bay.

The club wishes to thank all those who donated funds to the riders, and special thanks to the sponsors who helped to make the day such a success. Prizes were sponsored by Jim Bollinger, Lime, Texaco and Casa Bracca. Refreshments and food for the riders were sponsored by Dr Charles Reid, Billy’s Supermarket, Ed’s Place, and The Shoppe.

The club also received a generous donation of helmets to give to all the riders from Pamela Skull of the Young Marines of California.
