Make a date in your diary, Sunday 11 December, that’s when around 2,000 people will join the Tenerife Walk for Life from CC Gala shopping centre in Arona to CC El Litoral in FaÃ±abe to help the fight against breast cancer. Pink is the order of the day, try and wear at least some if you can, all ages and both sexes are welcome, breast cancer affects everyone as it touches many lives.
It’s just a 4.8 km walk starting at 11 am in good company along the Avenida Rafael Puig in Playa de Las Americas, a different route from previous years but the spirit and determination is the same. Many choose to dedicate the walk to lost loved ones but it is also a joyous celebration of the strides being made in medical research and a belief that early diagnosis and fund raising for a cure offer real hope.
Money is always needed to fund the fight so get yourself sponsored, every little helps. This year special calendars by photographers Williams Rodriguez and Abraham Aranega will be on sale to further boost the collection. Everyone will be playing their part, the swimmers from Club de Natacion Tenerife Masters have posed especially for the calendar. Money raised will be shared between AsociaciÃ³n EspaÃ±ola Contra el CÃ¡ncer (AECC) and theÂ AsociaciÃ³n de Mujeres Afectadas por CÃ¡ncer de Mama (Ãmate).
To get involved check the website or call organiser Brigitte Gypen on 629111856 or just come along on the day, it’s a very worthwhile way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning.
