Schoolkids participate in M4DW
The children of the Xarblanca school will participate in a special M4DW project. Because of the fifth anniversary the organisation has invited them to walk a 6km route on the 8th of October.
About 300 children from CEIP Xarblanca will participate in a pilot project from M4DW. Together with their teachers and some parents they will walk a route of 6 kilometers on Thursday the 8th of October. They will leave at 10hrs and return when the first adult walkers will get back as well so together they can enjoy the music and festive ambience at Las Terrazas del Puerto Deportivo. “We wanted to do something special for Marbella, since it is the fifth year” says Hans Wohl. “We considered inviting all schoolchildren but it turns out there are 17.000. A bit much. Because of the enthusiasm of Xarblanca last year when we started with Marbella 2Days Walking Kids we decided to contact them.”
Antonio Casero Martín, director of CEIP Xarblanca, is happy about the collaboration. “It is a nice activity for our students and we have build a project around it so it is also education.” The route they are going to walk is the same as the one on Saturday, from the Paseo Marítimo towards Marbella Club Hotel and back to Las Terrazas del Puerto Deportivo.
