BE a superhero for the day and make a difference by taking some time out to help raise money for the amazing Costa del Sol Avoi charity, which helps children and their families during and after cancer treatment.
Find your best superhero outfit and go alone or take your whole family to what will be the seventh fancy charity dress walk, due to be staged on Sunday March 8.
Walkers will gather at 9.30am for a 10am start at the Carvajal end of the promenade, going to the Castillo Sohail in Fuengirola.
It is just €5 per person to take part, all the money going to the charity. Participants can also request a sponsor form and collect their own sponsor money to put towards the donations.
“Avoi is a charity which does so much to help all the children live the most normal lives and really keep the families as strong as possible during a very hard time”, charity walk organiser Rosie May Weston told the Euro Weekly News.
“They helped and are still supporting a very close friend of mine and her little boy Oscar. He was diagnosed just over a year ago with Pineal Germinoma and is still currently going through treatment.
“Nobody should have to go through this alone”. says Rosie.
“Let’s make this an amazing event for the real superheroes going through such a difficult and scary time.
“We can’t help everyone but everyone can help someone!”
Trustatrade.es has kindly sponsored this event and will be providing water and snacks for the walk.
