The Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants (CIIPA) annual charity run will go virtual for 2020.

Dubbed "The Conquer Covid-19 Run/Walk", the event will benefit Resilience Cayman. Resilience Cayman is a volunteer-led initiative managed by the Chamber of Commerce. The programme has provided food support, financial coaching, intern placements and support for farmers. CIIPA’s volunteer social committee chose Resilience for the work they are doing to help those in the local community hardest hit by the global pandemic with a focus on sustainability.

CIIPA CEO Sheree Ebanks noted, “Resilience has worked closely with a number of organisations on island to effectively and efficiently help families and small, local businesses and we’re pleased to be able to assist in this way.”

Launched in 2013, the annual run has raised more than $35,000 for local charities including the Cayman Islands Red Cross, Special Olympics Cayman Islands, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and the YMCA.

The event is open to the everyone, and participants are encouraged to run or walk in their neighbourhood, on their treadmills, or wherever their journey takes them!

To register, visit, then complete your race by the end of September and submit your photos and your time. All participants will receive a souvenir tech shirt.

Sponsors of the event include Baker Tilly, BDO, Deloitte, EisnerAmper, IMS and RSM.
