Benidorm streets flooded with pink
MORE than 5,000 people took part in the Anemona Solidarity March in Benidorm.
Anemona is a Marina Baja support group for women with breast cancer and the march was organised to coincide with the International Day against Breast Cancer.
Those taking part in the 10-kilometre walk created a pink-coloured tide that flooded the streets of the town, earning spontaneous applause from bystanders on pavements and balconies.
Benidorm’s mayor Toni Perez and Equality councillor Angela Zaragozi and practically all local councillors joined in the march, together with members of the Fiestas committee, the Peñas association and the fiestas queens and their attendants.
Perez expressed satisfaction at the thousands taking part and the success of the 17th edition of the Anemona march.
“Once again the march has beaten records of both participation and involvement,” the mayor said.
