At 10 of July, i will participate in my first full Ironman race, in Switzerland, Thun (3.8km swim, 180km cycling 2200 height difference, 42km running).

At the same time, i am fundraising for the construction of a volleyball court in the General High School of Arkalochori and help the restart of the area, after the devastating earthquake of September 2021.


Why Arkalochori?

In 2015 i participated for the first time in the half-marathon of Crete in Arkalochori. Since that event, the idea of endurance races starting growing inside me.

The years following, i took part in that same race, either as a participant or a volunteer and the race started having a symbolic significance for me.

Through the next years, i started training in cycling and swimming participating in various triathlon races, smaller or bigger (half Ironman in Poland, September 2021, half Ironman in Greece, Costa Navarino, October 2021).

Day by day, i started thinking more actively, in participating in a full Ironman Race and what initially seemed like a dream, with hard work of body and mind started looking like a doable event.

At the end of September of 2021, an earthquake strikes in Arkalohori, leaving behind, a lot of devastated houses and people's souls.

After a few weeks, my decision will be double: I would participate in a full Ironman race and i would crowdfund to support with my way morally and materially, the place that teached me the joy of participation, the celebration of sports and redefining my own limits.


Why volleyball court?

After further talks and the co-operation of the Athletic Health Club of Arkalochori, we decided in crowdfunding the construction of the volleyball court in the general high school of Arkalochori, a court that will be the first of it's kind in the area.

The fundraise is also support from the General High School of Arkalochori and the municipality of the area.


Where the money goes?

All the amount of the fundraise will be used for the cause of creating a volleyball court in the area:


-Volleyball posts and net

-Redifining/constructing of the surface to the demands of a volleyball court

-Painting and lining of the place

-Surroundings works

-Volley equipment

-Lights
