''Aegeathlon'' was supported by companies and people who showcased their support to Paralympic athletes and their faith in their potential. At the same time, numerous professionals offered their services voluntarily for the success of the project.
GM Yachting, a Greek sailing company, provided two sailing boats (44 feet long each) , as well as their crew. The company covered all expenses for boats and the crew and also offered experienced escorts to support the athletes during their swimming endeavour.
GM Yachting has been our first sponsor and has offered us the best possible set off for our project.
A press conference to announce the project and present the athletes was held at the headquarters of the Navy Association of Greece (NOE). People of NOE have generously embraced our idea and offered their hospitality and services to athletes, officials and the media representatives that covered the swimming relay.
