Walk for Life joy!

LAST December’s Walk for Life left us speechless, with over 5,000 people walking and raising over €35,000. It was simply amazing!

There were so many hugs, tears of happiness, signs of strength, hope and unity, with so many more emotions felt that day.

It was a day for, and dedicated to, LIFE, which was made possible, thanks to all the people, the Councils and the sponsors, as the attached pictures demonstrate. So again, thank you to everyone.

The sum raised was a huge responsibility for the Foundation, and we have now finished handing over donations to the different projects, chosen by the Board of the Walk for Life Foundation. These projects make helping a wide range of people possible, which is the Foundation’s goal.

These projects are:

Project Km Solidario Aecc (supporting the cancer bus from South to North Tenerife)

Project Amate (supporting its project of micro-pigmentation for patients)

Project Risopérate of Pequeño Valiente Association (aid for the kids’ ward at the S/C Hospital)

VHIO Research Centre (for research on Liquid Biopsy and Advanced Molecular Diagnostic)

Project Goodbag (to help people who need drainage bags after operations).

We shall continue with our own BRA Project (donating free, new, therapeutic bras to women who’ve had mastectomies), which is also being implemented now on the islands of La Palma and La Gomera. And, hopefully, after the Summer, also starting in Gran Canaria.

In September, we will begin our “LINFA Project”, helping women as well as men with lymphoedema problems after operations. And, after the Summer, activities for patients and their families at the Pink Room will also be increased.

The objective and obligation of the Foundation Walk for Life is to raise funds, and use them to help and improve the quality of life for as many people as possible.

This is what we are achieving, step by step, together with your help, and with the help of the society.

In 2019, we will celebrate our first “15 years Walking for Life”. And, no doubt, we hope to celebrate this special edition, together with you: firstly, with an anniversary cocktail, so please put Friday October 25th on your agenda.

Then, towards the end of the year, we will obviously have Edition No.15 of Walk for Life, on 15th December. No doubt, it will be an extra-special occasion this year.

Canarian Weekly obviously has to be present because it has been supporting Walk for Life all these years. An official invitation will follow, as we have a limited number of guests.

Warmest regards,

The Walk for Life Foundation Team
