Announcements MaplesFS Helps Cayman Heart Fund Reduce Cardiovascular Disease Locally

24 Jun 2014

The MaplesFS Community Service Committee on behalf of MaplesFS clients recently donated CI$30,000 to the Cayman Heart Fund to support the organisations' fundraising efforts towards a new cardiac probe for the George Town Hospital children's ward. "For this year's Discovery Day 5K walk/run, we set out in the hope of raising CI$29,000 to fund the purchase of an ultrasound probe for the hospital and also to fund one of the National Council of Voluntary Organisations' ("NCVO") essential programmes that, on a daily basis, feeds nutritious and healthy meals to the 84 children and infants who attend Miss Nadine's Pre-School and the Jack and Jill Nursery," said Kevin Doyle, Vice Chairman of the Cayman Heart Fund. The new cardiac probe will be a much welcomed addition to the children's ward. Cardiac probes are used to carry out tests on infants before they undergo cardiac operations. Previously children had to be sent off-island for testing a costly, and often traumatic, experience.

The NCVO's children's meal programme ensures that children in need receive a daily lunch and snack. For many, this is the only home-cooked and well-balanced meal the child receives every day. The walk/run, which took place on Monday 19 May, is a highlight on Grand Cayman's annual sporting calendar and 2014 marked the seventh successful year for the Cayman Heart Fund event. The always-popular run/walk saw a record number of runners and walkers take to the road, with over 400 participants turning out early on Discovery Day morning to support this year's worthy causes. "Our heartfelt thanks to MaplesFS for their most generous donation towards the Discovery Day run/walk and its supporting causes," said Doyle. "It's no exaggeration to say that without the support of MaplesFS and its clients, we wouldn't have been able to not only meet but exceed this year's goal."

Cardiovascular disease is one of the largest health problems in the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Heart Fund is a non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to helping prevent and reduce the incidences of heart disease, the primary cause of death in the Cayman Islands and amongst women globally. The NCVO is a non-profit, charitable organisation dedicated to the care, education and well-being of children and families in need of support in the Cayman Islands. In addition the school meal programme, projects include a foster care home, small welfare grants like pocket money for a few of The Pines Retirement Home residents who have no other source of income, and donations throughout the community to people who are experiencing severe problems due to personal hardship or tragedy. "When the opportunity arose, our decision to donate the total required funds to the Cayman Heart Fund was unanimous," said Scott Somerville, MaplesFS CEO. "Statistics provided by the organisation on the impact of heart-related diseases on our community are concerning. We hope that contributions such as this will aid the Cayman Heart Fund's efforts to reduce cardiovascular disease locally."
