Walk For Life, Tenerife unites to fight cancer

A walk along the seafront in Tenerife always makes you feel good, but on Sunday 13 December, over 2,000 people will converge on Playa de Las Americas to boost the fight against breast cancer.

North and south, young and old, male and female, British and Spanish will come together wearing pink , as they walk the 3.5 kms from Mediterranean Palace to Sal Y Tien to raise money and awareness. Last year 20,000 euros were pledged, this time there is just the one walk on the island and coaches will ferry volunteers down from Santa Cruz to add their weight to the cause. Two charities will share the proceeds, AECC, a Spanish cancer charity, and Amate, a Tenerife charity dedicated to fighting breast cancer.

Awareness,early diagnosis and treatment are the keys to the continuing increase in cancer sufferers making a full recovery. Cancer touches many lives,most people know a family member or friend that has had the disease, all the more reason to make the Walk For Life a great success. There will be stages at each end of the walk, with entertainment in Spanish and English, this really is an event that cuts across all boundaries.

The walk starts at 11am, but it’s a good idea to arrive early. If you need any more information, phone 600821100 or try the website. If you are coming along, register your intent at Facebook, and help the organisers to plan ahead.
