“We recognize the privilege we have living in the Cayman Islands being surrounded by the serene beauty of our oceans and nature. It is important to us that we work alongside our community to preserve our oceans and local wildlife. We believe in doing our part to contribute to raising awareness about environmental issues impacting our island and conservation efforts.” – Laura Butz, Committee Head for Environment, Miss World Cayman Islands Committee.
Miss World Cayman Islands (MWCI) is raising environmental awareness one step at a time. On 30th June 2019, will be their first ever ‘EnviroWalk’ to raise awareness for the environment. “We are very excited to host our first EnviroWalk/Run on June 30 and sincerely thank our sponsors of the Walk – Flowers and Jacques Scott. We hope to continue doing this event as a fundraiser for the Miss World CI pageant but more importantly to bring awareness to the public about what we can do to help our environment. We believe it is important to preserve what we have now so our kids and grandkids can enjoy the environment for many years to come.” – Pamela Ebanks-Small, Director of Miss World Cayman Islands. The aim of the EnviroWalk is for MWCI to share their ongoing mission of “Beauty with a Purpose” with our local community. The “Beauty with a Purpose” project promotes MWCI commitment to using their platform to raise awareness about local environmental issues and collaborate with local environmental non-profit organizations. That said, funds raised from the EnviroWalk will go towards both Miss World Cayman Islands environmental projects and their pageant. In addition, a donation will be made to a local environmental non-profit organization to aid them in their conservation efforts. The local environmental non-profit organization that will be the beneficiary of a donation will be decided on the day of the walk. Moreover, the walk will be an eco-friendly event as much as possible. Participants are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle to refill at sponsored hydration stations courtesy of Flowers Bottled Water. Highlights to look forward to at the event include a quick 10-minute warm-up session led by MWCI’s fitness sponsor F45 just before the 5K Walk/Run begins. Miss World Cayman Islands winner Kelsie Bodden and the governor Martyn Roper will be leading the 5K Walk/Run. They will both run the course as a friendly competition. Throughout the course, participants can look out for eco-tips on signs to help educate the public on easy tips for living a sustainable lifestyle.
