A Challenge to Combat Cancer
A unique individual and group challenge – 24 hour endurance run!
In September 2019, Alex Panayotou, Old Columban and current ultra long-distance runner challenged the St Columba’s College community to extend their support for her latest charitable passion project. She will be running for 24 hours straight on Saturday the 25th and finishing on Sunday 26th April on the St. Columba’s College campus in aid of Purple House Cancer Support Centre. We hope that all of us will join her and that she will be accompanied every step of her run.
Meet Alex below!
Who is Alex Panayotou?
An Old Columban and accomplished endurance runner … but much more!
Alex has exhibited great endurance in her sport and indeed her life. She is a lymph cancer survivor and has been instrumental in developing charity sports in Spain. Her last extreme solo running challenge was when she ran 400 km almost non-stop (sleeping only for 5 hours throughout the entire process). She has shown us how instrumental one person can be in impacting change and now wishes to show us how powerful we all can be when we work together.
