CUDECA Hospice returns to celebrate its traditional Walkathon. It will take place on Saturday, June 3rd on the promenade of Benalmádena in front of the Sunset Beach Club Hotel (c/ Torre vigía Benalmádena) and aims to raise funds to care for and accompany people with cancer and other advanced illnesses, as well as to offer support to their families.
There will be 2 walking routes of 10kms and 5kms, a Holi Colour Party and delicious paella. After the walkers finish their routes, different solidarity activities will be held thanks to the collaboration of Activities and Events for Companies Exploramás; and there will be live music, games for children, a solidarity raffle and many more surprises.
This party was born in India where the well-known Festival of Colours takes place, which celebrates the arrival of spring and is known as Holi. The celebration consists of throwing coloured powder at each other, symbolising the arrival of spring and the colours that will come with it. To be part of this party, registration at the Walkathon is needed.

Holi colour party: 1pm
