"This year we are celebrating 10 years of the 2K Walk/5K Run and hope to have the biggest participant attendance yet,” stated Kym Taylor – Chairperson to the Board of Directors for the Home. “To show our continued appreciation of our sponsors, we have formed the Founders Club, which comprises of our original sponsors who have sponsored us continuously since our first event."
She identified the St. Kitts Marriott Resort; Royal Beach Casino; Marriott Vacation Club International; Grant Thornton; First Caribbean International Bank and Delisle Walwyn as good corporate partners over the decade.
President of the Royal Beach Casino and chair of the Family Fun Run Organizing Committee, Ugo Gagliard hosted the Lifting Spirits Fun Run Cocktail Reception on Thursday 22 August in recognition of contributors to the Home at the Ultra Sky Lounge at the Royal Beach Casino.
