The Money Box Project

10 June 2021 Categories Junior, Senior

Dear Parents,

We are very happy to present to you one of the charity organizations that we have been supporting this year.

Agios Christoforos is a non-profit charitable association founded in 1985 by Ioannis & Sofia Kaltekis, parents of a young patient with muscular dystrophy. It is the first association in Greece created to support myopathic patients and their families. The association provides counseling services for patients and their families, as well as supports sports activities for the disabled via their Athletic Association “Agios Christoforos” (ASAX) that has been training athletes who have achieved great successes in world and paralympic games.

Our support of Agios Christoforos is in memory of a parent and active PRC member, Mrs Efi Mirotheou-Fevga, who sadly passed away last summer. Mrs Fevga was also an active supporter of this organization and we wish to honor her vision.

In order to find out more about Agios Christoforos, we and Campion CAS students have prepared a short video presentation and have also attached a Youtube video of various boccia tournaments in which some of Agios Christoforos’ athletes participate.

It is now in our hands to support Agios Christoforos via the Money Boxes that our children brought home these past days! The money that will be collected in the boxes will hopefully be able to cover part of the expenses for a driver who will transport the Agios Christoforos members with their own specially adapted bus, as well as to purchase boccia balls for their sports activities. Please note the dates to bring in your Money Box and hand it to your teacher:

Junior School (all years) From: Tuesday June 22 -Thursday June 24

Senior School

Y11-12 : tomorrow Friday June 11 (please hurry!)

Y7-10: Wednesday June 23

If you have children in both schools, please send the box to the Junior School.

Please note that the boxes will be returned to you for future activities in the next year!

Special thanks go to Mrs Maria Yiassa-Kalapotharakou who coordinated the project and Mrs Maria Trellis who designed the new logo for Agios Christoforos.

Our CAS students M Manola, N Mavropoulou, L Longar, D Skotinioti, N Mitsokapas, F Makri, L Fais, Y Katsikis, M Zinelis are designing a brand new website for the organization and will help them with their social media as well, in order to improve their visibility and reach. We are very proud of their dedication to this project!

In case you don’t feel comfortable sending your donation through the money box, please email us at prc@campion.edu.gr to arrange a direct deposit.

We would like to thank you all in advance for your support.

Warm regards,

The PRC Board
