Evo Pilates and a charity evening for the memory of all
On October 27th, around 30 people, lovers of Yoga & Pilates attended the charity event that Evo Pilates organized at their premises in Bulevar Cala de Mijas (on top of Carrefour).
They all came up dressed up in pink to honor those who are going through cancer and the ones who are no longer here, which made the event very emotional for everyone.
A donation for Cudeca was requested at the entrance and raffle tickets were sold by Gareth (one of the owners of Evo Pilates) and Laura Ríos (with the Tins Department of the Cudeca Foundation).
In words of Gareth and Sue, owners of Evo Pilates: “It is amazing to have been able to find Cudeca so we can dedicate our charity work to them, since their cause is close to our heart. We believe in putting the heart and the soul together with health, and there is nothing that would make us happier than continue raising funds for Cudeca, so they can keep on their special kind of caring to so many”. On her behalf, Laura Ríos with the Tins Department of the Cudeca Foundation: “I feel so honored to be able to work with people as Gareth and Sue, with such a big heart and wanting to help others so much!.”
Later on in November, Sue and Gareth paid a visit to the Cudeca Palliative Care Centre in Arroyo de la Miel (Benalmádena) and were given a tour around the premises by Laura Ríos. They were very impressed and were able to see the new projects on the Cudeca Institute for Studies & Research on Palliative Care and the Palliative Care Paediatric Unit.
