Javier Gutiérrez, volunteer and ambassador of the Respiralia Foundation, achieved his challenge of going around Mallorca walking in stages to make people aware about Cystic Fibrosis and raise funds for the treatments that children and young people with this disease receive.
His heart condition and the need to walk to improve the functionality of his heart made him consider this challenge. In these 18 stages, he has seen how his physical and emotional condition improved: “I feel very satisfied for having achieved this challenge, which has meant both physical and emotional improvement for me. In this case, walking has been a wonderful exercise that has improved my health and that will allow the children and young people with Cystic Fibrosis from the Respiralia Foundation to receive the treatments they so badly need”.
Accompanied in almost all stages by relatives and friends, people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families and by other people who have joined the cause, Javier has managed to raise € 2,712.01 for the program “Education equals Health in Cystic Fibrosis” of the Respiralia Foundation.
The Verse company has collaborated with the contribution of € 4.00 for each first contribution to this cause of each person who used its application for the first time.
