Announcements MaplesFS Helps Local Students to Get Active

08 May 2014

MaplesFS is delighted to once again lend its support to the Cayman Heart Fund and Children's Health Task Force's Get Active Challenge, an annual twelve-week fitness programme aimed at local high school students. MaplesFS recently donated CI$1,000 towards the programme, which started Sunday 4 May and runs through August.

Every year, the Get Active Challenge supports a select group of teenagers who struggle with weight control, helping them to become more health-aware through nutritional education and healthier through regular exercise. The challenge provides one-on-one nutritional consultations, as well as a number of training sessions every week, ranging from cooking demonstrations and supermarket shopping to heart-healthy activities such as Beach Bootcamp and paddle boarding.

Childhood obesity has become ever-increasingly prominent in the Cayman Islands over recent years. "We hope that at the end of the challenge each participant will be armed with the knowledge to make healthier food choices and the motivation to continue exercising on a regular basis and that they positively influence their family and friends," said Get Active Challenge founder, and Paediatrician at TrinCay Medical Centre & Urgent Care, Dr Christine Chen. "I'd like to thank MaplesFS once again for their generous donation towards the challenge, and their continuous support of a more active and healthy Cayman." "Initiatives like the Get Active Challenge are key to inspiring Cayman's next generations to cultivate healthy habits from an early age which will help prevent health problems in the future," said MaplesFS CEO, Scott Somerville, "We are pleased to be able to support the challenge through another successful year, and to aid the Cayman Heart Fund and Children's Health Task Force's overall efforts to bring awareness of the issue to the forefront in the local community."
