Over 300 employees of IDILIQ Group came together wearing pink IDILIQ Foundation t-shirts to mark World Breast Cancer Day.
In collaboration with the mayor of Mijas, Josele González, and other members of the Municipal Corporation, representatives from the company also joined this emotional event. This image serves as the centrepiece of the internal fundraising campaign led by the staff throughout October, with all proceeds supporting the Spanish Association Against Cancer.
The president of the IDILIQ Foundation, Juan Miguel Marcos, expressed his satisfaction with this pink movement that moves the entire company internally every year: “We are proud to be part of this great family that demonstrates its enormous solidarity with the citizens every day. Specifically, in October, all our efforts are focused on helping research, prevention and early detection of breast cancer.”
Pink is more than just a colour. This has been highlighted in the enormous involvement of each department, through the organisation of different activities aimed at raising as much money as possible, which will go towards the fight against this disease.
The mayor of Mijas, in gratitude, once again acknowledged the significant contributions made by employees of IDILIQ Group in supporting the most vulnerable groups and individuals within the municipality.
According to the Spanish Association Against Cancer, 10,669 breast cancer patients were treated in 2022, accounting for 30% of the total number of women diagnosed with breast cancer annually.
Thanks to the pink movement, significant strides have been made, resulting in an average 5-year survival rate of 85% for breast cancer. Still, there is much work to be done.
