A Three-Pointer for Young Argyris

Date: August 25, 2018

A wonderful initiative by the pioneers Aggelos Pelagia and Andreas Kokkinos, manager and coach of the European University Cyprus Alumni Basketball Team (Warriors) was organized on October 23 at the closed court of Agios Dhometios. Four teams from the Amateur Basketball Championship participated in a charity tournament for young Argyris!


Combining love for basketball and a sense of social responsibility, the basketball tournament (with groups of Second Category of the Nicosia amateur championship) helped collect €4000 for the treatments of young Argyris. Argyris has cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia. He had a series of successful surgeries on his feet in Athens. Thereafter followed four specialized physiotherapy programs which significantly contributed to the improvement the Argyris’ walking. Sponsors from the beginning of this huge effort were Ojo Sunglasses and the Municipality of Agios Dhometios.
