LAST Sunday, November 24, the promenade in Marbella was dyed pink as several thousand volunteers undertook a five kilometre wall to raise funds for Cancer Charity AECC.
Each person who took part contributed €7 and received a pink tee shirt to wear during the walk, which was described as being non-competitive so that the very young and much older could take part.
Pink is the colour chosen to highlights the dangers of breast cancer and although much has been done to ensure that those who do contract this insidious disease can recover and still enjoy a long life, money still needs to be spent not only discovering possible cures but also in catching the disease at the earliest possible time.
The event also had a wider intent as it wanted to remind everyone of the fight against gender violence and the health advantages of all types of sport.
