Walk for Life 2018 – put 16 December in your diaries, and learn the dance for the record-breaking flashmob attempt!

Preparations have already been long underway for this year’s Walk for Life, which will be held on Sunday 16 December. Last year, around 4,000 walkers took part and raised over €20,000For those who don’t already know, the walk takes place every December, and this is the 14th year it will have been held. It is an event which brings together Spanish cancer charities and support organisations, people living with cancer, their friends and families, those who have lost someone to cancer, and on a wider scale the general public of Adeje and Arona. The start of the walk alternates between Adeje and Arona and ends in the other municipality, and this year it will start at 11am in the Golden Mile (Avda Las Américas) in Playa de las Américas (Arona) to the CC Salytien (Costa Adeje).

Walk for Life is a full charity in every sense (and more) that we would understand the word (see HERE for an explanation). It is the Fundación Canaria Carrera por la Vida and has a dedicated website HERE (remove the “s” from “https” if you have a problem loading the page), and a Facebook page HERE. This year, too, there will be a Flashmob – see the following video if you would like to join them dance for life!

  2. Hi Janet, I have just given out your email address on air at xpradiotwo about the Walk for Life. I’ve also asked them to watch and learn the FLASHDANCE on your site. I tried to do a paragraph, pressed ENTER and it cut the music off halfway through.Never mind, I’ve been in Tenerife for 27 years and have always loved reading your ‘words’. Many thanks, Katy
