MOJACAR is marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a fundraising walk.

The march under the AECC Spanish Cancer Association’s slogan ‘Mucho por vivir’ (a lot to live for), is aimed at raising funds for investigation into the disease and raising awareness about the importance of prevention.

Organised by the local branch of the AECC and Garrucha volunteers in collaboration with Mojacar council, Sunday’s will be the ninth edition of the initiative. Walkers will start out at 12 midday from Plaza Nueva in Mojacar Pueblo, where they will be given caps and key rings as a memento of their collaboration with an extremely worthy cause, as well as sandwich and a bottle of water to keep them going on the way. The finishing line will be the Hotel Puntazo on Mojacar Playa.

The organisers ask walkers to come dressed in pink to form a “pink tide”.

Mojacar’s public fountain will also be illuminated in pink as a mark of solidarity with the breast cancer cause.

Mojacar council pointed out more and more people take part in the fundraising walk every year, and that many of the participants are local foreign residents.
