“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
These famous words by Dr Martin Luther King motivate us to keep fighting, no matter the difficulties that may stand in our way. For the team at BirdLife Cyprus this means that we will persevere and do all in our power to achieve our goals for the conservation of birds and nature in Cyprus. Christina, BirdLife Cyprus Monitoring and Research Coordinator, may have taken these words a little too literally.
Christina certainly cannot fly, but, by her own admission, she’s not much of a runner either. So when on a whim she signed up for the 2017 Limassol Half Marathon this March, there was only one thing to be done. Make it count.
As she takes on this challenge, Christina is taking the opportunity to raise money to support the conservation work we do for birds and their habitats in Cyprus. If you wish to contribute to this spirited fundraising effort, you can sponsor Christina here. You can donate from as little as €1, but with a donation of €10 or more you will receive a birdy pin badge of your choice.
We wish Christina happy training and all the best for race day!
