Dear Members and Friends,
Following the huge success of our Sponsored Walk for the second year, we are now making this event an annual fundraiser and we would love your support.
Please join us for our third fundraising walk, which will take us to “The Hidden Benahavis” and get a chance to discover the outstanding countryside and mountains behind the beautiful “White Village” of Benahavis.  There will be 2 walks, one easy and the other a little more challenging. All walks will be guided and supervised. Beautiful mountain views, fresh air and great photography opportunities.


All walkers will receive a certificate of completion and there will be a special prize for the most sponsorship raised. After the walk there will be an optional lunch – read on for more details……

The walk/s
Starting from the formal gardens we will follow the river to the lake and the dam.  Here we will cut off from the formal path onto a track which takes us through woodland alongside a meandering stream sparkling in the dappled sunlight.  We then climb the hill to the north, to be rewarded by views of Benahavis, La Zagaleta and the range of mountains around. There will be many photo opportunities before we descend back to the lake to see the fish and wildfowl.
The "gazelles" amongst us will be led along a further path across another hilltop by a Rotary Guide whilst the "lotus eaters" will be led, on the high road, back to the Village Square for a well-earned drink.  The gazelles will join us a little later for our special lunch.

The lunch
Our picture shows a well deserved break for drinks in Istan last year.
This year the lunch will be at Restaurant Eugenio Las Canas, and the menu will cost 20 Euros, to include:
• Salads, Croquettas, Chorizos etc.
• A choice of fish or meat
• One bottle of wine and one bottle of water between 4 persons.
The restaurant is family run and is on the Benahavis main square.



Massages
After the walk foot massages will be on offer from Marjan Massage, with takings donated to the Club. We suggest a minimum donation of 5 Eur per 5 minutes.

What to bring

All walkers who have confirmed before the event will receive a sponsored T shirt.  

However you will need a few other things as well.
The weather can be varied so bring sunhats, sunglasses and suncream as well as something light and showerproof to cover up with. Don’t forget a bottle of water.
Comfortable shoes or trainers are essential and potential gazelles should bring walking boots.
The walk may go through long grass or scrub, so if you want to wear shorts consider long socks to keep your calves protected. You can keep them rolled down until needed.

Please bring your sponsorship money on the day

We recognise that not everyone is able to collect sponsorship money, hence the small participation charge. However if you do raise more than 100 EUR, your participation is free. You can bring the money to the registration point on the day.
Use the website page to show potential sponsors information about the walk.

ITS IMPORTANT TO CONFIRM how many of you coming in advance, and if you will want lunch. If you are unable to do the walk, join us just for the lunch – it’s always a great atmosphere
A quick email to rotaryclub.marbella.g@gmail.com will help us manage the day and allow the restaurant to prepare the right amount of food. Or  call Lorraine Powell on +34 619 099310

Above all, enjoy the day, meeting and walking with like-minded people, knowing it is all for a good cause.
