A Cheque for €1,404 has been handed over to Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice.
This was the amount raised by four days of walks held in Marbella earlier this month.
More than 2,000 international participants of 18 different nationalities were involved in the series of walks that left Plaza del Mar square in Marbella to walk various routes.
This was the ninth edition of the event and third consecutive year of collaboration between the Marbella 4 Days Walking organisation and CUDECA, with the cash raised coming from the online registrations of the walkers.
The first walkers started on Thursday, October 17, traditionally the quietest day, with a 30 km route that went through green areas, Puerto Banus and finished at San Pedro Alcantara. The following days the walkers saw different parts of Marbella: altos de Marbella, Nagüeles, Lago de Tortugas, sierra Blanca and parts of the beach.
At the end of each day, all attendees were able to enjoy in the mornings two great music bands and snacks offered by the local and very well-known pastries and catering GOYO. From noon the music was provided by the DJ team of MOOOV events in a collaboration with a variety of artists.
The square was a party plaza everyday where people sang and danced while enjoying a drink. To relax, there was a cozy lounge corner to chill in.
On Sunday, October 20, the last day of the event, on the Via Gladiola in Marbella a gladiolus-symbol of victory-were distributed.
Next year the Marbella 4 Days will take place on October 8/9/10 and 11. For what will be their 10th edition, they hope to welcome 2,500 participants and make it a great anniversary celebration together.
Last week presidents of the organisation Hans and Clarie Wöhl, got together in a meeting with Vanesa Morales, from the Communication and Fundraising department of the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice, to hand over the cheque (pictured).
From the Cudeca Hospice, loving thanks are sent to the presidents of Marbella 4 Days Walking and their organisation for keeping their connection with CUDECA and helping to allow us to continue caring for more patients and their families at the end of life.
