(CMR) The Cayman Heart Fund (CHF) recently received a generous donation from BritCay in support of World Heart Day 2019.
On Sunday September 29th, 2019 the world will be celebrating World Heart Day. World Heart Day is a global campaign during which individuals, families, communities, and governments around the world participate in activities to take charge of their heart health and that of others.
Cayman Heart Fund is running two separate campaigns for World Heart Day 2019 as we understand the importance of spreading awareness to our community.
Wear Red campaign is about wearing RED on Friday, September 27th, 2019. It’s no longer just about wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about making a commitment to stand together with CHF and wear red, taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without. Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do alone either, so grab a friend or a family member and make a Cayman Heart Fund commitment today.
Light the Sky Red is an event will be held on World Heart Day, Sunday September 29th 2019 from 6pm – 9pm. This event is another day where we encourage the community to come out wearing red and watch the sky light red in honour of the Heart Warriors and Heart Heroes. It will be a great night of awareness and raffle prizes by Cayman Crossfit, Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa, Bon Vivant and more. Do not miss it.
Lamar Haynes BritCay Health Manager, said The Cayman Heart Fund is one of the local non-profits who we applaud for their efforts to save lives simply by educating the local population about heart and circulatory diseases, and by providing access to life-saving cardiac equipment. Heart disease is a major health challenge in the Cayman Islands, so we hope that others in the community will see the value of partnership with the CHF and join us in supporting their various endeavours.
Dr. Bella Beraha, CHF Chairperson, said we are thrilled and thankful for the support shown by the community ahead of World Heart Day. Britcay is strong supporter of the preventative medicine and we thank them for their generous donation. The Cayman Heart Fund strives to educate the public about Cardiovascular Disease; Donations such as these help us to get closer to achieving the goal of eradicating heart disease in the Cayman Islands.

- A promise to our children to exercise more help them to be more active, to say no to smoking and help our loved ones stop
- A promise as an employee to invest in heart-healthy workplaces
