Walk for Life / Carrera por la Vida

Walk for Life / Carrera por la Vida is a charity dedicated to fighting cancer. It is active in fundraising primarily in support of, but not exclusively for, breast cancer in both English and Spanish communities across Tenerife. As well as contributing to fundraising for projects by other organisations, the foundation also organises its own initiatives, notable The Bra Project and The Pink Room.  The Bra Project: Carrera por la Vida-Walk for Life Foundation will gift a post-mastectomy bra (with a base for a prosthetic breast) to every woman affected. This will be a new bra specifically for each woman, to her measurements. This action is undertaken in conjunction with the AECC, medical centres and hospitals, to guarantee the highest quality and efficiency.

In addition, Walk for Life / Carrera por la Vida manages The Pink Room, a welcoming space for information and events about cancer and for use by cancer patients and their friends and family. It is located at Edif. Escuela de Seguridad y Convivencia, Calle Beneharo s/n, Las Nieves, Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife. The Pink Room is open between 4:00pm to 8:00pm every Wednesday. A space for affected people, created by affected people and volunteering. Space donated by Adeje Council.
