Cancer is undoubtedly one of the biggest ailments that causes great suffering in the world today. And when children become its victims, then it gets even more heartbreaking. This is why Engel & Völkers could not miss the opportunity to collaborate and participate in the sports day charity event for childhood cancer. This event is to be held on Saturday, June 9th between 10.00 and 13.30, in the Tennis Club of Sant Andreu de la Barca.
What Will the Event Consist of?
As we have already mentioned, it is a sports day where tennis will be the main game, but not the only one. In fact, beyond paddle tennis, within the facilities of the Tennis Club of Sant Andreu de la Barca, adults and children can enjoy Zumba classes, painting contests and live music during the entire event.
In addition, the 50 companies and businesses that have collaborated with this cause, including Engel & Völkers, will organise a raffle for the little ones to take a nice souvenir home. To this, we must add that more than 100 people have made the event possible. In addition, the ticket price is € 5 and it comes with a raffle number for the draw.
Who is the Collection For?
The entire collection at the event, both in tickets and other purchases that can be made within the club, will go to the Esperanza and Vida Coco Association. This charity organisation focuses its work on children suffering from the cancer type neuroblastoma. This is a type of rare tumour that affects mainly babies and children under 5 years of age and it occurs anywhere in the nervous tissue.
The representatives of this charity foundation will, in turn, be responsible for delivering the donation collected by the Tennis Club of Sant Andreu de la Barca to the Hospital de Sant Joan de Deu in Barcelona, one of Europe's most advanced health care facilities in research and treatment of this disease.
