Thank you all
Another year WALK FOR LIFE can say proudly that we had another great event. Each year it gets harder, as each year the event gets bigger and bigger: meaning that it needs more organising, more hands to help, more means. But it is all worth every effort when we see the pink wave through the streets of Tenerife South. Thousands of people walking for someone and for this important cause.
The 2016 edition counted over 3400 Walkers and 152 Runners too for the first time! A new record in number of overall participants, which resulted in raising 17.816€ on the day, as is stated in the Notary Deed made up by Sr. Roberto Cutillas, Adeje Notary. (included in this final amount, was an extra 1500€ by the company Tenerife Pearl, as this was handed in a few days before the Walk) The total raised will go to the Cancer Associations Amate, AECC (KM Solidario cancer bus), Fero Investigation & Research, and the Pink Room Project. Thank you to all participants, from the bottom of ours hearts.
