The Greek champion announced in a post on her social media page that on her birthday, Tuesday the 10th November, 2020, she will be ready to start the Virtual Race of 42.195 meters.


“This flame will never go out!  Nenikikamen!!!”, she wrote in her post and claimed that this year’s race is of great symbolic character after having defeated breast cancer herself and have come through with flying colors! 


“This is a personal race, dedicated to all women who are fighting their battle with breast cancer.  The message I’m conveying is that “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE”.  I am also dedicating it to all the children at “Orama Elpidas” because the greatest celebration is within us!  


All together and each on our own – we will run this distance”, she stated in her post.
