Visit to the President of the Hellenic Republic
The members of Pastra Cretonaxiosa Swimming Team, the first Greek team to accomplish cross-swimming the English Channel, were welcomed at the Presidential Residence by the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
The President congratulated the members of the team “mainly on the extent that you have given to all your efforts, considering the future of young people, especially in areas of our country that need actual support. And we’re talking about people who, in their turn, are searching for their own future through a respective “cross-passing”, that of life. I hope your efforts set an example to plenty others.
All the noble characteristics of your action, especially the fact that it is completely selfless, in a world that is – not only in domestically but also internationally – not distinguished by selflessness, are valuable to us. To these characteristics, Solidarity towards Human can be added. We lack this kind of Solidarity.
