Our eighth annual Walk for Life raised €12,115.36!
The day started with a warm up zumba session given by Angie and her zamburinas from Quesdada, once limbered up the walk began at 10.30am. Around 420 people took part creating a sea of pink, from pink coloured clothes to pink fancy dress, a brilliant effort was made by all. At the start line the walkers were given bottled water provided and donated by Evolution Bar.
At the finish line each walker received a pink t-shirt from TV Horadada, this is the fourth year they have kindly donated tops for everyone. For a small donation walkers could purchase a sun cap provided by Mercadio del Toro.
Thanks to Sunshine Trophies for donating the trophies for the best dressed man and woman on the walk.
There was a fantastic afternoon of entertainment from Danza Lusion by Ariel Munoz, Jo Jo, Al Joel, Dan Davy, Sinead, Nikki G, Just Ollie, Suzy G and Jaz, No Limits, Cindy Fitzpatrick, Jonny Lea, David John (Rod Stewart tribute), Kylie Burgazzi, JJ Soulman and our very own Pink Lady Patti in Abba Elite. Hosted by Simon Morton of Sunshine FM and compared by Stevie Spit, all of which gave their time for free and we are eternally grateful to them all.
The Pink Ladies and Panthers were on hand all day with tombolas for both adults and children, AECC merchandise and they were taking appointments and queries. A full bar service was provided by Evolution Bar, along with a hog roast, Caribbean food, ice-cream van and market stalls.
Maria would also like to thank Councillor Lusia Bone from Orihuela Costa town hall for providing all that was needed on the day, local police for keeping the walk moving and to all of her volunteers for all of their work on the day and the run up to the walk.
We are all looking forward to next years walk!
