Participation in the Limassol International Marathon

Remedica participated in the PrimeTel 5km Corporate Race of the Limassol International Marathon, which took place on the 23rd of March 2019. This Marathon is run on a flat course which follows 42.195 kilometres from the centre of the city, along the beachfront, to the ruins of the ancient city of Amathus. With a total of 126 marathon runners, Remedica’s team was the 4th largest group of the marathon and out of the 228 companies that participated, our team came in 6th! In the context of the charitable purpose of the event, handmade gifts were sold at the price of 5 euros at the company’s reception desk during the registration period of employees in the marathon. The amount collected was donated to the Karaiskakio Foundation, which is run by the Bone Marrow Donor Registry, and which combines volunteering and specialised scientific support to patients with haematological malignancies both effectively and efficiently. Saliva was also collected for the Bone Marrow Donor Register before the start of the Marathon. With the arrival of the spring season accompanied by plenty of long, sunny days, participants were inspired to get out and run: the marathon was the perfect opportunity to meet with friends and keep fit while at the same time contributing to a charitable cause which was the main goal of the event.
