Avenida del Mar will host on November 7, starting at 12 noon, the departure of the IX Solidarity Race Pink Tide, an event that will be held in person again after the pandemic with the aim of continuing to make the fight against breast cancer visible.

The mayor stressed that “it is a great satisfaction that the city can once again host a proposal that has always been massively supported because it is a festive activity, which is done with great love and enthusiasm” and has encouraged citizens “to show their support in this new edition to get exceed the more than 2,000 participants of 2019”.
Cintado, for his part, pointed out that “the work carried out by AECC volunteers and staff with people suffering from the disease and their families is absolutely commendable and deserves our full support” and has highlighted the importance of Marbella ” once again flooded with this pink tide and let’s get a record of attendance, because the income will allow us to continue with the projects and services provided by the association ”.
Del Cuvillo explained that “it is one of the most relevant events that we organize, not so much for the collection, but for the visibility it has and because it is a day to share and give hope.”
Registrations can be made until November 4, for an amount of 7 euros, at the AECC headquarters and at the following link. In addition, the race will have the support of Ambulancias Andalucía and all security measures will be maintained, respecting the sanitary protocol.
Finally, Martín has highlighted “the importance of women who suffer from the disease have a network that does not make the economic drama join the staff and that is one of our main objectives” since, as he has pointed out, more than 70% see their income reduced.
