The Long

Walk 2022

SEPTEMBER 30 – OCTOBER 2 2022
We cross mountains, one step at a time
supporting “Women & Families, Fighters & Survivors”
on Gran Canaria

Total raised so far …

This year our goal is to raise over €10,000 for our local charities. Sign up now now or donate.

Tenth Anniversary Fundraiser

Every penny we raise is divided between our main charities helping Women & Families, Fighters & Survivors on Gran Canaria. This year we are raising funds, once more, for the ACCMyG, Canarian Breast Cancer Association (joined by our sister event the Caminata Maspalomas), and The Food Project, Mogán's food bank and outreach programme on the south of Gran Canaria, and plan to give at least 10% of the money raised to plant more trees at The Long Walk Woodland Reserve, in association with Fundación Foresta

Can’t join us on the walk?

You can donate directly and all your donation will go to our local charities.

Corporate Sponsorship

Our content will reach over 250,000 people via news channels, social media campaigns and events. Your brand will be associated with women’s health and wellbeing, healthy active lifestyles, rural tourism, team building, luxury hospitality, Gran Canaria Culture and history, and lots more. And most importantly all funds raised through corporate sponsorship go directly to local charities.

The Long Walk

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 directly raised well over €150,000 for local charities, starting with The ACCM (Canarian breast cancer association) and then also including The Food Project in Mogán, and Fundación Foresta, planting trees for our own little woodland reserve at the top of the island.

When you start to include the sponsorships involved, and the various other events, campaigns and organisations that have followed our lead, we estimate the total generated to be well in excess of €250,000 over the last decade.

Join The Long Walk

Join us for 1,2 or 3 days, enjoy the mountains of Gran Canaria surrounded by amazing company whilst you support important local causes on our island.
