1st Children Marathon Artemis Agrotera, 11/11/2012

On Sunday, November 11, 2012, during the Athens classical Marathon, the Cultural Association ‘Ardittos’ in collaboration with the Citizens of Mets Initiative, and with the support of the Organization for Culture, Sports and Youth of the Municipality of Athens organized a symbolic children’s Marathon starting at the Panathenaic Stadium and finishing at the archaeological site of the temple of Artemis Agrotera.

A group of EcoFans Club members participated in the children’s Marathon and in the events following the race at the archaeological site of the temple. The children had a great deal of fun but also the opportunity to appreciate the true value of participating in a common effort where there are only winners. At the end of the symbolic race all children were given victory wreaths as a symbol of the athletic events in Ancient Greece.

The EcoFans Club had visited the archaeological site of the temple of Artemis Agrotera once before when members helped clean up the banks of the Ilisos River. The Hellenic American Union environmental group is engaged in a number of efforts to preserve the sites and monuments of historical importance and protect the natural setting they are found in.
