Raquel López, executive director of MAMIfit, is about to start a challenge in the company of 15 other women. On Thursday, May 26, these brave women will leave the Plaza Mayor in Madrid, at 06:00 in the morningand will travel the 561 kilometers that separate this area from Gijón, the destination they want to reach Saturday the 28th in the late afternoon.

Madrid – Gijón, a tribute

Madrid- Gijon; Gijón – Madrid is the route that Raquel, like so many young Asturian people -known as the ALSA generation-, took for many years: she left her homeland to go to Madrid to carve out a future, in this case as a professional dancer (his dream at the time). Today, a few years later, and after having walked that path hundreds of times, she does it again accompanied by this group of brave people to pay tribute to her land.
