Mijas La Cala Lions Diabetic Support Group Sponsored Walk
November 5, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
La Cala Lions Diabetic Support Group 5th Sponsored Walk and Market for World Diabetic Awareness Sunday November 5th. The whole event begins from 10 am.
People all over the world celebrate World Diabetes Day. Many cities, through the World Diabetic Foundation, have a monument lit in blue for solidarity on the day itself, for example the Sydney Bridge, Coliseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In La Cala we light up the Town Hall in blue. It is truly an international day for us.
On November 5th we have our 5th Sponsored Walk for Diabetes Awareness for 5 km along the Boardwalk. Also to keep you busy there are several entertainers here in Torreon Square, La Cala de Mijas. Music and groups, Zumba, Pilates, the Fencing Group, the Drang Children’s Band and fabulous flamenco dancers too. Our nurses will also be giving free glucose checks etc. The whole area is traffic free and there are play areas for the children, beautiful beaches, puppies to pet from ACE, and lots of bars and cafes for drinks and tapas.
There is also a fabulous Artisan Market with over 30 stalls along the paseo selling items not found in the High Street. YES! everything from honey and gingerbread to works of art, clothes, crafts, artwork, bric-a-brac and jewellery. Come along on Sunday 5th November to either join in the sponsored walk for diabetes awareness or be part of the fun. Now’s the time to shop early for Christmas too!
