(CMR) Team Nolan, the paediatric program of the Cayman Heart Fund, has made a donation to a local family with a child undergoing cardiology healthcare.
Despite being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, having had to postpone its largest awareness and fundraising event, KIDSFEST, originally planned for June 27 ; Team Nolan was still able to raise funds for families in need .
During the difficult COVID-19 lockdown periods, Team Nolan organized an online Zumbathon hosted by The School of Fitness allowing the public to join in and make donations online while enjoying a great, fun workout from the safety of their homes. The June 27th Zumba event raised over $2,500 KYD.
“I really appreciate the help of Team Nolan and the Cayman Heart Fund during these difficult times. I admire the work of Ailian and Sean of Team Nolan – having the strength to help others despite their own personal tragedy is inspirational,” said recipient of the grant Brenda Bush.
