On the 8th October 2016, there will be a long neon snake of kind hearted and fun loving people weaving their way through the streets of Marbella for charity, and Op de Beeck & Worth are proud to announce we will be sponsoring the event.
The Neon Night Marbella Walk is a great idea. It’ is a colourful, noisy family (and pet) friendly event which is not only a lot of fun but also raises much needed funds for the children’s charity Centro de Atencíon a la Diversidad Infantil (CADI). CADI is a local association that helps children with special needs, and all of the proceeds raised during the Neon Night Marbella Walk will go directly to the charity.
As an established Marbella based insurance broker, we always try to give something back to the community whenever possible, particularly when it comes to helping local children. So we had no hesitation in supporting this extremely worthwhile cause. The Neon Night Marbella Walk is particularly close to our hearts, as Elisabeth Op de Beeck, business woman, charity campaigner and also the daughter of our founder Patrick, is organising the event.
So what is the Neon Night Walk?
Now in its third year, Neon Night Walks takes place annually in a number of different locations throughout Spain, including Marbella, Cadiz, Seville and Madrid. The aim, first and foremost, is to raise money for the nominated charities. Everyone who takes part pays a registration fee, meets at the allotted time and then becomes one big florescent snake winding through the streets along a planned route. In Marbella, this year’s walk will start from Terrazas del Puerto Deportivo at 9pm on Saturday the 8th October. The more people who join the snake, the more money the charity will receive. In 2015, around 1,200 people joined and 8.700€ was raised for charity.
As its name suggests, you need to carry or wear something ‘Neon’, but don’t worry you will be issued with a kit containing a T-shirt, bracelets, glasses a necklace etc. so you will look equally bright and florescent as everyone else.
