Some 3,000 people have participated in the 19th edition of the 'Posa't la gorra' (Put on your hat) pediatric cancer awareness event in Barcelona's central Ciutadella park, including Catalan president Quim Torra and health minister Alba Vergés.

Organized by the Afanoc association for friends and families of children with cancer, Saturday's gathering was complete with all sorts of family-focused concerts and workshops.

"Today [the community at] Ciutedalla park has mobilized against pediatric cancer by putting on hats. Thank you all for your solidarity - strength and courage to Afanoc for the laudable and necessary work they do," the president Tweeted.

Afanoc has distributed 28,000 baseball caps thus far at schools, municipal councils, private and public entities. They can also be purchased online for €8.

Saturday's event is the first in a string of similar events that will take place throughout Catalonia.
