Preparations have already been long underway for this year’s Walk for Life, which will be held on Sunday 15 December. Last year, a record-breaking pink wave of 5,200 including the mayors of both Arona and Adeje took part, raising €35.500, and this event just keeps getting bigger and bigger. For those who don’t already know, the walk takes place every December, and this is the 15th year it will have been held.

It is an event which brings together Spanish cancer charities and support organisations, people living with cancer, their friends and families, those who have lost someone to cancer, and on a wider scale the general public of Adeje and Arona. The start of the walk alternates between Adeje and Arona and ends in the other municipality, and this year it will start at 11am in the CC Salytien (Costa Adeje) and head to the Golden Mile (Avda Las Américas) in Playa de las Américas (Arona).

Walk for Life is a full charity in every sense that we would understand the word (see HERE for an explanation). It is the Fundación Canaria Carrera por la Vida and has a website HERE and a Facebook page HERE.
