By BBN Staff: UDP Standard bearer for Cayo Central, Mark O’Brien, and his committee had scheduled a 5-a-side football marathon for this Sunday in Cristo Rey, Cayo.
The marathon was being held to fundraise for a cancer patient from the village.
However, today, O’Brien posted to Facebook that the marathon has been canceled.
Many residents have commented on their discontent with the decision to not allow the fundraiser to be held including former Cayo Central Area Representative, Daniel Silva.
Silva commented, “If this information is correct then it is a wrong decision. Who doesn’t want you to use the field? Have u received a letter?”
O’Brien told BBN that the cancer patient reached out for assistance and they went ahead and planned the marathon along with the support of the Village Chairman and residents.
But, he has now been informed the orders were given by the Cayo Central PUP executive that O’Brien is not allowed to use the field or the equipment.
