A struggle to get chest out Against the breast cancer in a very symbolic way and without agglomerations, which will remain on the retina for at least twelve months. Police and Civil Guards of the country, most Alicante and Santa Pola, have developed a solidarity calendar to raise funds with which to help Amacmec Elche and region to continue developing the physiotherapy and psychology programs that the members need to face the disease.
The initiative comes from the international police exchange association, Star Spain, which is already well known for other solidarity campaigns such as “The Great Journey of Felix” to help people with Alzheimer’s and their families; the “Trip to Clawhouser” against cancer around the world, as well as the bicycle journey made by agents from the fishing village to Santiago de Compostela in 2018 also against the disease. The pandemic of coronavirus makes it difficult to develop actions involving crowds and for this reason help is now in the form of a calendar. For this, about twenty agents have wanted to make their contribution by showing their most creative part. They have looked for the ideal landscape, the pose in which they felt most comfortable and They have been photographed with pink ribbons painted on the chest.
Some go out by bicycle. Others want to take down the disease with their boxing gloves or prepare for a good attack in their kimono. Even the police dogs add up. One of the intentions with the initiative is to send a message of positivity with the motto “Breastfeed Against Cancer”. “You have to be proud and it is not a problem that you have to hide because many times for women who suffer it it means that they have to be hidden and it is not like that, you have to get ahead” Jordan Dorado, President of Star Spain and one of the members of this emotional tribute to all people, especially women, who suffer from the disease and later recover from its consequences.

The calendar can also be ordered online and a raffle for gifts made by local businesses and businesses is planned, as each copy is numbered.
