Raise money for Cayman Islands Cadet Corps (Marathon Charity)
The Cayman Islands Cadet Corps is an initiative started by the Ministry of Education to educate and train youth in the Cayman Islands. The CICC consists of both male and female students between the ages of 12 and 17 years old.
The principle aims of the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps which is now operated through the Portfolio of Internal & External Affairs, in conjunction with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, is to teach discipline and mold character.
Self-respect, national pride, civic knowledge, punctuality, sense of duty and leadership, physical and mental endurance, responsibility, citizenship and camaderie are some of the values taught to the students by the CICC staff.
The cadets are a very integral part of the Cayman Islands Marathon event. They assist in the set up and clean up for the race and they each run 1km in a relay form. Their Commandant and other leaders also run alongside them. In addition the parents of the cadets make up the majority of the 135+ volunteers who make the race happen.
