Story

On 11/11 I will be running the Authentic Marathon in Greece.

Please help me raise funds for Leap of Life, a charity of women with breast cancer which was formed and started action in 2008 in Thessaloniki/Greece while the main office of the pan-Hellenic association in Athens has been operating for more than twenty years.  

Their basic aim is to offer to every woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer socio-psychological support, organised mutual help by specifically trained volunteers, updates on all health and labor issues, as well as other extra aid provided by public services.

Another important  goal is keeping the public informed about the importance of prevention and timely diagnosis of the disease as well the mobilisation of women for regular checkups.  Additionally, over the last years they have added one more important function in their association’s programs which is supporting uninsured or financially struggling women.  Every year they carry out a plethora of free screening tests in collaboration with diagnostic institutions and the main cancer hospital of Northern Greece.

Every year they run many events and celebrations with the underlying theme of demystifying breast cancer, aiming young people as well, in their attempt to change around the up-to-now-common notions about timely diagnosis and prevention.

It will be my first time running a Marathon and I'm thrilled and scared. The thought of these wonderful women from Leap for Life will keep me going.
