Unicaja Banco will once again collaborate with the Salamanca Charity Walk Against Cancer, which will be held on 8 October. This is an initiative that each year reaches 15,000 participants. As a new feature this year, the walk will end in the Plaza Mayor.
The walk will start in the area of the old church of Arrabal, as in the last edition, and then will continue through the most central streets of the city, passing through Toro or Zamora street, and will end in the Plaza Mayor, where there will be various activities and the possibility of joining the charity pincho and menu of some locals who will join the initiative.
The event was presented today at the City Hall of Salamanca, with the presence of the Councillor for Public Health, Vega Villar, and the president and manager of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), Angel Losada and Roberto Martin, respectively, as well as Unicaja Banco’s head of Institutional Relations for Northern Area, Maria Jose Rivera.
The price of the bib to participate and collaborate this year is eight euros and will also serve for the collection of the commemorative t-shirt of the current edition of 2023, as it was explained during the presentation at the City Hall of Salamanca.
As they have explained, the initiative will serve to raise funds for research but also to celebrate the "commitment" of society with the association throughout the year, hence it is intended to be "a party" and a way to give "a round of applause" to all Salamanca people who help the AECC with their contributions and actions at different times.
"The word unity is the key," has stressed the president of the AECC, who remarked that the society of Salamanca contributes more than one million euros a year for the initiatives launched and also does so through the "knowledge" of scientists and researchers working from the city.
"The objective in the short and medium term is that no life is cut short", said Ángel Losada in a presentation where he insisted that "what everyone contributes is useful" within a series of actions that allow people in need to "walk in company".
