Facing a period of profound social and humanitarian crisis, in a challenging economic environment, with our moral under threat, I feel, now more than ever, the need to contribute in every way possible to protect the cornerstones of our culture.
Recognizing the growing needs of our most vulnerable people and prompted by Marathon’s historical and cultural background, I take the initiative to launch the Marathon Foundation. The purpose of this effort is to develop the local community, improve the living standards of Marathon citizens and promote our culture, sportsmanship and environmental consciousness.
As a reaction to the crisis our society faces on a daily basis, I envision a Marathon that will be a stronghold for the creation of a genuine community of solidarity, an international hub for culture and sports, a gate that will promote Greece across the world.
Through the Marathon Foundation, I aspire to unite our partners in civil society, foundations, prominent Greek and foreign citizens and of course the residents of the broader region to bring a wave of change.
We change Greece, starting from Marathon!
