AHEPA Youth presents
Path to Paradise
Sunday 1 March 2015, 10.30am for 11.00am start
We're enlisting your support for Father Themis' fight against the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone!
Come join AHEPA's Path to Paradise on Sunday 1 March at Princes Park in either our 3.2km run or walk as we fundraise to buy medical supplies for the prevention of the Ebola virus at the Orthodox Mission of Sierra Leone, founded and run by Fr Themis. 3000 families depend on the Mission, especially now in their direst hour of need.
Princes Park is one of Melbourne's most prestigious and well-kept gardens, home to the Carlton Football Club's training grounds and features impeccable views of the city skyline.
Join us for a morning of healthy competition followed by a barbecue, bake sale, fun and games in Lawn 3.
Bring your family, friends, neighbours, kids, pets & all - this event is open to the public but registrations are only available via TryBooking.

About Father Themis
Father Themis has been dubbed "the Apostle of the Poor and Oppressed" for his inspiring and selfless work in Kenya and Sierra Leone.
Due to the current Ebola Virus outbreak, Father Themis must remain at the Orthodox Mission to care for the 3000 families under its care whose direst hour of need is now. This makes our job to fundraise together with Australians all the more important.
In September, AHEPA fundraised for gloves and masks which reached the Mission and were distributed to its families and Freetown locals. This March, help us fundraise for distributable chlorine sachets so that the Mission and its families may sanitise themselves, their water, their homes and work surfaces to help prevent Ebola from spreading.
