American Academy holds Run for the Community 2018

In May, for the fifth consecutive year, The American Academy Nicosia organised the charity race Run for the Community which took place along the length of Grammiko Park with 500m, 1km, 3km and 5km routes.

This year the event was dedicated to the memory of acclaimed sportsman Andreas Georgiades, on the occasion of the completion of a year since his passing, to commemorate his contribution to sporting and educational events and to Cypriot society overall.

In this year’s event as in previous years, the enthusiastic response of the public was indicated by the age range of participants which varied from three years to 80 years old. The event was celebrated with great success and also featured sports games between students, parents, teachers and graduates of the academy. The parents association of the school enriched the event with games and fun activities for children.

The event was held under the auspices of the municipality of Nicosia, with Mayor Constantinos Yiorkadjis launching it. All the net proceeds of the event are given each year to the charity organisation Angaliazo, which supports poor families in the wider community.
