Kissamos Fun Run – STIRIZO

We ran, and it was fun!

A small team from Kissamos News took part in the recent Fun Run and charity event “STIRIZO” / “(I support)” held to raise money for the special needs school of Kissamos. The organisers did a fantastic job, and there was a good turn out both for the run and the charity basketball match / hair donation.

The event finally raised €1,016, which will be used by the special school “EEEEK Kissamos”
