RE/MAX Honoured with Community Service Award Presented by RE/MAX Caribbean and Central America

RE/MAX Cayman Islands is proud to announce that they were recently honored with the 2023 Community Service Award presented by RE/MAX Caribbean and Central America.

“RE/MAX Cayman Islands is an inspiration to many franchises around the world, due to the level of service that they provide, and how much they give back to their community,” added Ricardo Cardenas, Co-Owner and Regional Director, RE/MAX Caribbean and Central America. “They are a true example of the abundance mentality that we profess at RE/MAX. They see giving back not as an option, but as a responsibility that they are happy to fulfill.”

The RE/MAX Caribbean and Central America region consists of 25 countries with more than 106 offices and 836 agents.

For the past 30 years, RE/MAX Cayman Islands has been recognized for its commitment to community service, distinguishing them from other real estate companies on the island. Their dedicated charity committee leads their annual donation drives and community engagement initiatives, with every agent actively contributing to their yearly fund.

“Giving back to our community has always been a cornerstone at RE/MAX Cayman Islands,” added James Bovell, Broker/Owner. “Over the last 30 years we’ve been involved with charities throughout the island. We helped re-build after Hurricane Ivan, we’ve participated in blood drives, collected toys for kids at Christmas, have multi-year commitments to fundraisers across the island and everything in between.”

In 2023, RE/MAX Cayman Islands sponsored Stride Against Cancer, which they have done for over 12 years now. They also participated in the Chamber’s Earth Day Roadside Clean-up and was a Gold sponsor for the Flowers Sea Swim for the 8th consecutive year. They also participated in “Rock Your Socks” in support of World Down Syndrome Day, “Seniors Rock” in support of Meals on Wheels, among others.

Inspired by co-founder Kim Lund’s late wife Brenda, The Breast Cancer Foundation lies at the heart of the charitable endeavors at RE/MAX Cayman Islands with Kim Lund and James Bovell as founding members and current board members of the foundation which celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2024.

“15 years ago, my desire was to continue the work that my late wife, Brenda, had started to bring more awareness to Cayman about breast cancer and the importance of early detection,” added Kim Lund, Broker/Owner. “As we continue to ramp up our support services, our goal is to help anyone with breast cancer get help when they need it until the Breast Cancer Foundation is no longer necessary.”

At the end of 2023, the charity fund raised additional revenue which enabled RE/MAX Cayman Islands to make two substantial donations. RE/MAX Cayman Islands donated $5,000 to Jubilate to fund their annual budget for education enrichment supplies and donated $5,000 to the Alex Panton Foundation to sponsor their Community Mental Health Presentation Series starting Q1 2024.

RE/MAX also hosts an annual Family Fun Day in November which brings out hundreds of kids and families to King’s Sports Centre for a free afternoon of free roller skating, bowling, and rock climbing plus free food and drinks.
