Supporters of the Cudeca Foundation from all over the province of Malaga came together on Sunday to participate in the hospice charity’s annual walkathon fundraising event.

In order to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, a virtual initiative under the banner of WalkaHome was repeated again this year to replace the traditional seafront walk.

More than 1,100 people took part in the initiative, organising an array of activities in their homes and neighbourhoods.

To coincide with the event, which began at 10am and finished at 8pm, Cudeca hosted a YouTube broadcast presenting different participatory activities such as Zumba and yoga classes, along with cooking lessons, messages of support from local celebrities and live entertainment.

The prize for the biggest group participation (59 people) went to the Colegio Palma de Mallorca in Torremolinos.

A spokesperson for Cudeca said, “We would like to thank everyone that participated again this year, and also a special thanks to all of our sponsors.”
