Droustsas to Omogeneia: Help promote Greece with the Marathon
Σύνταξη/επιμέλεια από τον/την Νίκος Αγγελίδης   
Droutsas noted that as many major cities around the word such as London, Boston and New York organize such a Marathon, an event that attracts thousand of people from around the world, Greece too wishes to create a similar atmosphere with the Athens Classical Marathon, for the country’s international promotion. He underlined the significance of such an event particularly now at a time when Greece is at the center of so much negative publicity on an international scale with its credit crisis. With the Marathon he stated, Greece could shine through just as it did with the organization of the highly successful 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Finally, in his closing comments, Droustas called on all expatriate Greeks to contribute to the idea with their ideas and proposals for the materialization of such a project.
