LDM Global is excited to sponsor the Kiting for Cancer event this year in the Cayman Islands. LDM Global is a leading consultant to mid-tier law firms around the world, focusing on legal discovery management and computer forensics.
During a weekend in January or February – depending on best weather conditions – a team of 10 kite boarders will kite for 100 miles in open ocean to raise money for the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
“This will be the first time this journey has ever been attempted. With a team of incredibly passionate kite boarders, we hope to not only complete it successfully, but also raise a substantial amount of cash for the CICS, which is certainly our main motivator,” said Amy Strzalko, who is the team leader and founder of the event. “Almost everyone has been affected in some way through cancer, so each team member has their own individual experience that I am sure is putting fire in their bellies to together help make this an epic event that can help change lives.”
LDM Global works hard to create a positive and healthy culture for its employees. Supporting charities its employees feel strongly about is part of that culture.
“Our leadership team believes in encouraging employees to volunteer in their communities and to stay healthy by taking breaks to enjoy the outdoors,” said Caribbean Director Sean Theron. “We were honoured to sponsor Kiting for Cancer because not only is it an event that encourages physical challenges, but it gives back to a worthy and important cause.”
The Kiting for Cancer team has raised more than $90,000 to date. The team members are paying their own expenses so that all funds raised go directly to charity.
“The Kiting for Cancer event is a way to connect a love for adventure with support for the Cayman Islands Cancer Society,” said Jeremy Walton, a member of the kiting team and partner at Appleby. “We are thankful for our local supporters, such as LDM Global, who will help to make this a successful event.”
