Sponsors of the “Wings of Hope Trip”
The participants of this year’s charity event “Wings of Hope Trip”, returned to Cyprus on 1 April with wonderful memories, after contributing to one of the most successful fundraising events for Telethon.
The “Trip” to Prague became a reality thanks to the sponsorship of Petrolina and its associate company PTT Aviation Services, which sponsored the fuel for the trip. Around 70 people participated in the trip, which is expected to generate a net revenue of around €15,000 for Telethon.
The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics and the Cyprus Muscular Dystrophy Association, who organise the Telethon event in Cyprus, extended their warm thanks to Petrolina and PTT Aviation Services for their long-standing support to the “Trip”. Telethon has been organised in Cyprus since 1994, aiming to financially support the effort for better treatments and a better quality of life for the members of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This year’s Telethon campaign is organised under the slogan “TELETHON 2019, let our heart speak!”
The Cypriot petroleum company Petrolina supports, through its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, events that support the work of charitable foundations with a proven track record of contributing to improvements in public health and quality of life. Telethon, among other things, supports specific scientific research programmes on neurological and genetic disorders.
