The countdown for the first “Parkinson’s Colour Day”

Every morning over 160,000 people in Spain, wake up with Parkinson’s disease.


Under the slogan “For a future without Parkinson’s,” on the 27th of November, the first Parkinson’s Colour Day organized by Arona, and the Parkinson’s Foundation will take place.

This unique event combines sport, fun, music, and solidarity.

The event will begin at 11:00 with a 4km walk that will start at Parque Santiago 4 (Paseo Orinoco) and end at 12:00 in Parque Santiago 6 (Avenida Chayofita), where the Festival will be held. The walk is not timed and it matters little who left first, because the only goal is to have fun and enjoy the music that will accompany the day.

The “Parkinson’s Colour Day” is aimed at all children, families, friends, even pets. Participants may attend dressed up to add even more colour to the day, the only important thing is to have fun and keep adding support for a future without Parkinson’s.

Currently, the event has the support of the City of Arona, Radio Club Tenerife – Cadena Ser and Parque Santiago 6 complex. In the coming weeks, it is expected that other large companies will join this project.

Anyone who want to register can do so on the Cure Parkinson Foundation website, at a price of 10€ for the general public, €8 for groups of more than 4 people and children up to 12 years participate free. The sale of online registration will close on 24th at 12 pm. If there are any remaining places, they may be bought in person at Parque Santiago 6 on 25th and 26th November.

100% of the profits will go to Parkinson’s research projects.
