 It may be an early start, but at 6 a.m. Sunday morning there’s only one place you should be – and it’s not in bed! 

For the fifth year in a row, the Walk/Run for Recovery takes place at Seven Mile Public Beach. 

Money raised for the event will help the resident of the Hope For Today Foundation – a half-way house for recovering addicts in West Bay.  

And you may see some familiar faces early Sunday morning, as a number of politicians along with Deputy Governor Franz Manderson are expected to take part. 

Many of these are used to running for election – but not necessarily running for sport! 

Brent Hydes from the Hope For Today Foundation said: “As we all focus on rehab and prevention, we try to remove the negative stigma that surrounds substance abuse in our community.  

“Cayman is home to many people that struggle with this deadly disease. If not addressed it will be
detrimental to the community as a whole. 

“We must all show our support and be an uplifting voice in this mission.” 

As well the chance to pick up some trophies for the winning runners, there’s also a number of raffle prizes on offer including a staycations and restaurant vouchers.
