DANCER and choreographer Rafael Amargo has scaled La Concha, the most famous peak of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, to raise awareness of Butterfly disease.

The severe skin condition affects between 3,200 and 5,000 people in Spain, and can be life-threatening.

When he got to the top, he led a musical performance with a guitar accompaniment, on a bench that has been dedicated to highlighting the disease.

Amargo was also joined by members of the International Police Association, and the Malaga F.C. women’s team.

On their return they met with Mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, who praised the “commitment and involvement of Rafael Amargo, one of the most important artists in the country.”

She also thanked the DEBRA charity for its invaluable work and research around Epidermolysis Bullosa (Butterfly disease) and said:

“DEBRA does a magnificent job for those affected by Butterfly skin and their families.”
