£120raised of £100 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £120 to raise awareness and provide inspiration for great Gran Canaria causes & charities, walking 3 days, coast-to-coast over its highest mountain

    Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria, Spain
    Funded on Tuesday, 31st October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    We want to support really worthy local causes, with a particular focus on cancer patients and their families, locally on Gran Canaria. We work with patient associations, created by sufferers and cancer survivors, to look after the psychological and emotional needs of the patient as well as their immediate family. We also work with the local food bank to support the many families in need who rely on the generosity of the local community, native and foreign, to ensure that accommodation, clothing and food are available to those who need it most.

    While lots of Spanish state money nationally goes to large cancer research and medical treatment organisations, after treatment care and patient support during recovery in Spain is not well provided. Similarly the Spanish benefits system is sorely lacking and it falls to food banks and local residents projects to help ensure that those who are struggling can survive and try to improve their situation.

    Locally organised groups to try to provide the necessary emotional and psychological support to those in need, with experience based information to help those who are suffering most feel that they can get through the challenges ahead of them.

    The local associations we work with also to provide support for life partners and even children to help them understand what is happening, and how they can stay positive, grow and help to overcome life challenges they face.

    We want residents and visitors to Gran Canaria to join us in a message of solidarity; that by working together, we can all cross mountains, no matter high, no matter how far we have to travel to achieve what might often at first appear unachievable..

      Just to say thank you to all you guys who donated on here. We fairly quickly switched to the main site to continue our fund raising directly, as most outside of UK and US don't really know Justgiving so well. Pleased to report that not only did we walk coast-to-coast over that mountain, but are well on the way to raising more than €6000 for local charities, although we may just fall short of our target before the end of October, we are nevertheless very proud of everyone who has taken part. Still a few more days to go, wanted to thank you

      Well this is the sixth year we've come together to raise funds and awareness for local causes, this year we're again raising money for Canarian Breast Cancer Association ACCM, and also for families in need who rely on our local food bank to get by. We are being joined this year be participants wanting to raise funds for these great causes and one more very special association Pequeños Valientes, who support local children with cancer. We'd really like your participation. Join the walk, encourage others to, sponsor us for every step of km
