Marbella Néon Night 2017
This year’s Neon Night charity walk took place on Saturday 7 October with over 1,000 people getting together as the sun went down on the terraces above the Puerto Deportivo in central Marbella.
From early afternoon, “néoners” (a term used to describe the participants) gathered to enjoy the numerous activities and the entertainment as a prelude to the start of the walk at 21.00. There was a great display of karate from Marbella’s youngsters, performances of Capoeira, flamenco and oriental dance classes and a canine exhibition by Marbella’s local police.
At 21.00, the phosphorescent lights were focused on the arch with the walkers all waiting for the start signal from the mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz. They headed off to the dock next to the Marbella Club Hotel where they turned and headed back to the terraces. Once back, they enjoyed a raffle with gifts donated by local businesses.
This year the funds raised exceeded €5,500.

As the sun went down, people gathered to collect their kits and prepare for the darkness. To entertain everyone whilst waiting for the start, there was Zumba to music encouraging both adults and children to take part. This was followed by Olympic Karate Marbella who gave us a taste of karate. It was amazing and received raptuous applause from the audience. Marbella Dance School entertained us with their wonderful dancing and then the Rock Factory provided various styles of music from pop to rock.
Everyone was there to raise funds for C.A.D.I – the local association which helps children with disabilities. In particular, they raise funds for essential therapies. We are pleased to report that €6,500 was raised.

All the walkers were given a neon accessory kit with earrings, a ring, a necklace, glasses and bracelets, to wear during the walk and ‘light the way’.
