The Valencia Conference Centre has joined the initiative organised by the Valencian branch of the Spanish Cancer Association in the 2nd charity event entitled “Valencia against Cancer”.
Around 5,000 people will be taking part in this event, which aims to promote healthy eating and solidarity. The races will be held in the Paseo de la Alameda on 29th October, with thousands of people that are committed to healthy eating habits and to fighting cancer, taking to the streets, improving their quality of life and contributing to raise money to fight the battle against cancer. The events include a 5 km walk, a run, and skating and spinning races. These events are part of the Valencia Run Cancer circuit, which has already organised 40 charity walks and 21 charity races throughout the province of Valencia, bringing together over 36,000 participants who have raised a grand total of €142,000. All the money raised goes towards funding pre-doctoral scholarships for young Valencian researchers in biomedical institutions in order to find a cure for cancer through research.
Participants will be able to pick up their race numbers and T-shirts from the Valencia Conference Centre on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th from 10am to 8pm.
