The Noja City Council and the ‘We are all Iván’ Association have opened registration to participate on December 9 in the VII Solidarity March.

The price to participate is 15 euros, both for the walker modality (12 kilometers), as well as for the trail (12 kilometers) and the family walk (6 kilometers). The objective is to raise funds for childhood cancer research and support for minors and family members affected by this disease.

The departure of the walkers will be at 10:30 a.m., the 12-kilometer trail will be at 11:00 a.m. and the family trail will also be at 11:00 a.m.

The ‘We are all Iván’ Association is a non-profit organization created in 2017 by Juan José Pulido and María José Pellón, in memory of their son Iván, who died a year before from Ewing’s sarcoma, a cancerous tumor that develops in the bones or in the soft tissues next to them.

The association works to support children with cancer, affected families and research projects and early detection of childhood cancer.

Every year, around 1,400 new cases of children with cancer are diagnosed in Spain from 0 to 18 years old. Despite being a rare disease, childhood cancer is the leading cause of death from illness up to the age of 14.
