Fluorescent footprints during the charity walk Neon Night Marbella faces its second edition with the goal of doubling the number of attendees
PLAN ESPAÑA & CADI are the two associations/NGO that are 100% beneficiaries of the charity walk..Today the official presentation of the second edition of Neon Night Marbella was held. It is a charity walk that aims getting the maximum number of people joining this fluorescent snake that will go through some of the main avenues of Puerto Banús on October the 3rd. The event will take place at sunset so the fluorescent accessories of the participants shine brighter.
The Sports and Social Rights delegations of the Marbella Town Hall have been an important part of this original proposal promoted by the company Search 4 Sponsors, whose final aim is to shed light and hope to the everyday problems that the families and children face.
During the presentation, held at El Corte Inglés Costa Marbella, the delegate of Social Rights, Victoria Morales, highlighted the family and supportive nature of this initiative. “From our delegation we encourage all citizens to participate in Neon Night Marbella and from our side you have our full support,” she said.
On the other hand, Neon Night’s godfather, Javier Mérida was proud to be part of this idea and stated his intention to “do everything in my power to promote this walk through all possible means.”
From 7:30pm the fluorescent neon kits will be distributed along with a T- Shirt on the terrace of El Corte Inglés Costa Marbella (1st floor) to start the walk at 21:00. The starting point and the goal will be located in the area of the Hard Rock Cafe, to start a 3 kilometers walk.
The playful and supportive nature of Neon Night Marbella makes it possible for entire families, children and pets to enjoy a specially designed route to have a good time.
The funds raised from the sale of tickets, 10 € per ticket, will go to two associations dedicated to children. One is the CADI association of Marbella, composed of children with functional diversity and special needs (www.asociacioncadi.org/). This platform consists of 137 parents and 41 children, newly established and comes to meet the special therapies needed in the psychomotor development of children.
CADI’s representative, Angela Sanchez, said the amount collected will go directly to the families of the association.
The second entity benefited from the events footsteps taken during Neon Night Marbella is the NGO Plan España whose campaign “Because I am a Girl” seeks since 2007 to end gender discrimination that affects millions of girls around the world (www.porserninas.org).
This time Beltran Milla from Plan España, explained the importance of such initiatives to raise public awareness. “The female is always the most disadvantaged, so they need our unconditional support,” he said.
The tickets are for sale since last September 17th at El Corte Inglés, Puerto Banús, Mijas and Málaga at the sports shoes department.
Private collaboration and sponsorship is also a very important part of the second edition of Neon Night Marbella. Leading companies in various sectors such as Helicopteros Sanitarios, Op de Beeck & Worth Insurance Brokers, Ecocarinvest DNA Creative Agency, Hard Rock Cafe, Essential Marbella Magazine, Party Land, Madison Studio, Luks Marbella, Playas del Duque and Eric Patisserie have provided their resources to benefit this cause.
The footprint of a sneaker in bright colors (pink and blue) centers the design of the poster for the walk. A composition purposely chosen to complement our slogan of the event: “Your solidarity leaves a trace”
