Corporate Sponsorship

We reach over 100,000 people via news channels, social media campaigns and events. By sponsoring The Long Walk your brand will be associated with women’s health and family wellbeing, healthy active lifestyles, rural tourism, team building, luxury hospitality, Gran Canaria Culture and history, and more. And most importantly all public donations raised through corporate sponsorship go directly to local charities.

The Long Walk last year
10th anniversary event

Walkers were able to join us for one, two or all three days walking coast-to-coast over the highest point on Gran Canaria, from Las Palmas to Maspalomas, to help raise funds and awareness for local Gran Canaria charities.

Join us for one, two or all three days

* This is the minimum sponsorship required to pay for an individual walker, it is not a donation. It would be amazing if you could raise more.  Every registered walker is also given an official fundraising page to collect donations from the public, friends and family to support this epic effort to inspire people in need #WeCrossMountains

Sunday Walkers

If you can’t join us on Friday, the weekend or the whole 3-day walk, come along for The Last Leg, a half day walk to the finish line from Fataga or the 6km Caminata Maspalomas.


The Last Leg

If you can’t join us for one day, the weekend or the whole 3-day walk, come along for The Last Leg, a half day walk to the finish line. From the mountains to the sea.

We will be walking 20km from Fataga to the Faro de  Maspalomas Lighthouse. 25€ covers your insurance, gives you the opportunity to spur on The Long Walkers as they get ever closer to their goal and you even get an exclusive Long Walk t-shirt.

What’s more is you will be able to add to our total simply by asking people to donate on the basis that you will be walking 20km of trails with an epic team of adventurers walking in to Maspalomas

Caminata Maspalomas

Over the years the Caminata Maspalomas has raised more than €60,000 for Canarian Breast Cancer Charity the ACCM.

It only costs 12€ to join and every penny raised goes to this very special charitable association who, as opposed to funding research, provide support for those who have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer or Gynaecological Cancer, helping them to work through their treatments and therapies, with a particular focus on their families, their children and partners, and providing psychological support that simply is not offered by the healthcare system here in Spain.

In many ways they are our local version of the UK Macmillan fund, founded by grass roots cancer survivors here in The Canary Islands.

The Last Mile

Join us at the RIU Palace Meloneras for the last mile to the finish line, joining with The Long Walkers, the Last Leg Cheerleaders, The Caminata Maspalomas and anyone else who wants to wear pink and join us for our moment of Triumph, our tenth anniversary walking coast-to-coast for Women & Families, Fighters & Survivors on Gran Canaria

The Big Picture

Our final act of the event, down on the pier in front of the Faro de Maspalomas, one last image of solidarity, joining everyone together in a photograph of defiance against adversity,

Whether you’ve walked the whole way, or part of it, or you are there to support someone who has; whether you want to remember someone who has suffered, or someone who has succeeded in their own personal challenge, we want to see you there, in pink, and proud to be part of this epic event we call The Long Walk.

See you on the trail. x


More than €150,000 raised since 2011

Since our first fundraising event, at Sioux City in 2011 we have helped raise well over €150,000 for local charities, having started with  our local Canarian breast cancer association we have gone on to make large donations to The Food Project in Mogán (Proyecto Vecinal de Alimentos de Mogán), and Fundación Foresta, planting trees, including for our own little woodland reserve at the top of the island.

Join The Long Walk
