La II Cursa Solidària for the benefit of the Spanish Association Against Cancer Ondara will be held next Sunday 20 in October. The course is organized by the Department of Sports of the City Council of Ondara and the Local Board of the AECC, with the collaboration of the Athletics Club of Ondara.

Mar Chesa thanked the great effort made by the Local Board of the AECC in organizing the course and all the people who collaborate, both businesses and companies, as registered to participate in the race.
Chesa highlighted the collaboration with the organization of the Athletics Club of Ondara and recalled that in the first edition of this solidarity race, held at 2018, a great participation was achieved and 5.120 euros were collected in favor of the AECC. This year, it is hoped to consolidate the race and get high attendance again. To this end, a call for solidarity has been made, since all the proceeds obtained in this sporting event will go entirely to the AECC for the investigation of the fight against cancer.
