BENITO JUAREZ, November 17.- It is very satisfactory that the sum of efforts, the government and the private initiative are translated to the benefit of Cancun citizens, assured the city's president, Mara Lezama Espinosa, during the launch
The Karisma Foundation Medical Unit and the closing of the National Diabetes Week 2018, which took place on the Plaza de la Reforma esplanade.

At the end of the tour, he participated in the formation of the Blue Circle for the World Diabetes Day; he also welcomed the cyclists who had previously made a roll of the diabetic community, which began in the Plaza de la Reforma in Puerto Cancun; and Malecon Cancun, returned to the Plaza de la Reforma.
