Vuelta a Nado Isla de La Graciosa 2021
28Km charity swim around the island of La Graciosa.
This year’s edition is in aid of “Estrellita Mágica de Yenedara”, set up by a fighter mum who’s raising funds for the research of neuroblastoma childen’s cancer . She says:
” I’m Melania Brito. Mother of a warrior who fought against NEUROBLASTOMA, the most common and under-researched cancer in children. I’ve created this page because I’m going to celebrate a fundraising gala in Lanzarote in 2020 to raise money to get a proper research study for this cancer. Help us help. Remember; you aren’t born with this disease, anyone close to you could get it; your kid, your sibling, your cousin, your nephew/niece or even your neighbour. Why not give them the right to live? Why not have a proper research study? Is it not enough to fight against this disease at such young age? This project is dedicated to my little big star who taught me the true meaning of life and the will to remain living with strength, courage and love in spite of having that internal fight against this disease. Her dream was to help all those kids who get sick. For her, for them, we have to succeed. We want more kids on earth who can show us how pure life can be and less stars in the sky.”
