Sports Paths Resumes Free Activities for Kids’ Health in the Greek Islands

ATHENS — The Sports Paths program, paused temporarily by the pandemic, is relaunching, inviting children from remote Greek islands to enjoy free sport and creative activities guided by experienced physical education instructors.

This summer, the Sports Paths program will reach eleven islands, from Agios Efstratios to Amorgos, and from Kastelorizo to Folegandros. The aim of the program is to promote sports education and improve the physical and mental health of children who live on the islands.

This year, in addition to the program’s usual activities, kids will have the opportunity to participate in experiential, tech-based WhyMath workshops and learn about staying safe around water and helping protect the environment through educational activities from SafeWaterSports.

Sports Paths began in the summer of 2015, supported in full by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and designed and implemented by the nonprofit Regeneration & Progress through its Sports Excellence Department, under the scientific supervision of the 1st Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Athens University Medical School.
