Saturday 13th August – “Palma to Lluc Walk”
The Palma to Lluc Monastery annual walk is scheduled for Saturday 13th August this year. This annual 48km night walkleaves Palma at 11pm and is fully supervised throughout the walk by police, medics, and volunteers manning an extensive number of watering and fruit/refreshment stations along the route. This annual event has taken place now for more than 40 years and last year there were more than 16,000 walkers. The walk passes through the central plain from Mallorca through Santa Maria and towards Inca and then onwards to Lluc. Yes the walk is viewed as an achievable challenge and an ideal and unique fundraising opportunity.
Last year Fundacion JoyRon (JoyRon Foundation) brought together a team of some 26 walkers to raise funds for the Children in Need in the Baleares. This year the foundation plans to walk again and seeks to have some 30-50 walkers.Fundacion JoyRon has already made an initial commitmentto build a new enclosed swimming pool facility with changing room facilities for ASPACE in Bunyola. the net total cost for this project is forecasted to be euro 50,000 of which the foundation has already raised euro 16,000. So this year all monies raised by the foundationwalkers or by direct donation will be used to cover the euro 34,000 still required to complete the swimming pool. For more details about the swimming pool please go to the “about” tab on this site and then click on “projects”.

For all those walking to raise funds for the foundation it is anticipated that each walker should endeavour to raise at least euro 250.00 for their efforts. If more that would obviously be much appreciated and welcomed.
For each registered walker Fundacion JoyRon will pay the walk entrance fee which provides a free return journey from Lluc to Palma (Coach Lluc to Inca and Rail Inca to Palma). In addition the foundation will provide each walker a free JoyRon t-shirt to be worn on the walk.
