Paddling for Life, Paddling for Children
Is a charity event, supported by the Ministry of Education, organized the last three years and whose donations are all given to institutions that support and help children. In particular on August 15th Costas Symeonides will attempt a passage from Crete –Greece to Limassol-Cyprus of a total distance of 700Km. He will have a sea support by a sailing yacht 47 feet and a power boat and a total team of 10 persons. The event is organized by a total core team of 30 persons and various volunteers. All the proceeds shall be donated to the Center for Preventive Pediatrics; a Centre that Costas and his team feel strong about. This center has the need of constant cash support due to its nature. Currently we are in the process of accepting support and sponsorships that will support us in completing our challenge.
The event was succesfully completed, Costas Symeonides paddled 700km in 10 days and was welcomed to Limassol like the true water man that he is! Finally the event collected more than 33 thousand euros for the Centre!!
