My name is Luci and I am the mother of three boys here at O´Castro British School. For those of you who do not know, our youngest son Joaquin (a.k.a. Kini) has fought and beat cancer.

Kini has been through brain surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, etc. all without complaining and all with the support and encouragement of his family and friends. He attended school throughout most of his treatment and his friends here at O´Castro made him feel loved and cared for every minute he was there. Kini ´s favorite movie is Disney Cars and he loves cars and F1 races. So during his treatment and anything that we did to bring awareness to childhood cancer we used the hashtag Kini´s Pit Crew! For those of you who follow F1 or Cars know that the Pit Crew are the ones that not only cheer you on but help you win! (changing tires, giving gas,etc) We thought it fit great for Kini´s family, friends and doctors as they too cheered him on, administered meds, etc.

On Sunday, November 1st, 2015 at 10am starting from Avenida de Castelao (los volcanes) there will be a fundraising race/walk organized by Vigo Contra el Cancer. Please join us and become part of Kini´s Pit Crew in honor of your fellow school mate and in honor/memory of all kids and adults fighting against cancer. No one should have to go through what Kini endured, but if they do let’s let them know they are not alone! Let them know that Vigo and O´Castro British School will walk/run to help find a cure for them!! Since this year the walk is the day after Halloween we invite you all to come in your costumes!

Come be a part of Kini´s Pit Crew. If you are a runner, you can do so in a 10km competitive race and if you are not, you can join us in a 5km walk. If you cannot do either, you can still help by donating to this day under Dorsal Solidario. Thank you in advance! Hope to see you all there!
