Paul Gilliam has lived and worked on Gran Canaria for more years than any of us care to remember!

After having lost his mother to cancer, and on hearing about the very first success of The Long Walk back in 2012, he wanted to take part in something that would help highlight local cancer charities on the island he loves so much.

Paul, strongly supported by his team, has been a leader among participants since 2013, and has completed more coast-to-coast walks than nearly anyone else taking part.  We are proud to be able to call him President of The Long Walk Association.

A keen walker, he has been as delighted by the wild interior of Gran Canaria as he has been the huge support shown by others around him for his continued commitment to “giving something back” to the island he has made his home.

Paul and his co-workers have been the single most important team supporting the event, enabling thousands of euros every year through various fund raising activities, and by every year voluntarily joining The Long Walk across Gran Canaria.  On the third day of The Long Walk, Paul is joined by many of his supporters and colleagues for the last 20km or so to the finish line.

“After losing my Mum to cancer, I have always wanted to raise money to help out people going through the pain and battle against Cancer.

We want to support cancer patients and sufferers locally on Gran Canaria. We work with patient associations, created by sufferers and cancer survivors, to look after the psychological and emotional needs of the patient as well as their immediate family.

While lots of Spanish state money nationally goes to large cancer research and medical treatment organisations, after treatment care and patient support during recovery in Spain is not well provided.

It falls to locally organised groups to try to provide the necessary emotional and psychological support with experience based information to help not only the sufferer feel that they can get through the challenge ahead of them, but also to provide support for their life partners and even their children to help them understand what is happening, and how they can stay positive and help to be part of overcoming the challenges they face.

We want residents and visitors to Gran Canaria to join us in the message that by working together we can all cross mountains, no matter high, no matter how far we have to go to successfully get to the end of the journey we must face.”

You can donate directly to Paul´s online campaign either here or by visiting his Just Giving Page:

Paul’s total is inclusive of what he has raised through his own endeavors on JustGiving….
