The Long Walk 2021 Faro de Maspalomas – Gáldar, over the highest peak on Gran Canaria… #WeCrossMountains
2021 has been a tough year, huh?
You can bet, there are plenty of people who have had it much tougher and so we need your help.
Even just a few Euros can make all the difference for a family-in-poverty trying to put food on the table. Any amount you can contribute will help our local breast cancer association provide assistance to women on the island dealing with life threatening illness and trying to keep their family together. We want to smash our target and raise more than 5000€ for Women & Families, Fighters & Survivors on the island of Gran Canaria
The Long Walk – Gran Canaria aims to show that no matter the size of the challenge ahead of us, by working together, one step at a time, we can all cross mountains. #WeCrossMountains
We raise funds and awareness to assist families, groups and individuals on Gran Canaria facing potentially terminal illnesses, like Canarian Breast Cancer Association ACCM (Asociación Canaria de Cáncer de Mama y Ginecológico), environmental organisations helping to protect our island, such as Fundación FORESTA, and those dealing directly with poverty in our community, such as https://TheFoodProject.es Proyecto Vecinal de Alimentos de Mogán Nabohjelpen among others.
The Long Walk 2021 will start Day 1 by the famous Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse, and head north along The Pilgrims’ Way, the only officially recognised stretch of the Camino de Santiago (Ruta Jacobea) outside of mainland Europe. We will travel from the Dunes of Maspalomas, up through the Fataga valley to Tunte, where we will stay the night, and on Day 2 complete our ascent with a traditional toast at the highest summit on the island following a small detour from the trail, up to Pico de Las Nieves. Walking across Las Cumbres (The Summits) stopping another night at Cruz de Tejeda. Day 3 will begin with a visit to The Long Walk Woodland Reserve, before our descent, through the northern mountain pine forests, into the ancient pre-hispanic island capital, the royal city of Gáldar, and end on the north coast around sunset.
10 adventurers. 3 days. 80+km. 1 island.
