Cultural and sports events supported by the PPA


The 32nd Vartzakeios Health Race at the PPA


The 32nd Vartzakeios Health Race, organized by the Piraeus Runners Club, has returned to Piraeus, where had begun in 1986, with races of two kilometers for children and 14 km for adults.

The race for the first time in history passed from the port of Piraeus, which opened the Gate E12 in order the participants to run in the Cruise Terminal.

The sporting values of Christos Vartzakis, who, it is worth noting that was an employee of PPA, are consistent with the social offer, as the Health Race is dedicated to the Piraeus Children Protection Association "The Good Shepherd" and the revenue will be allocated to children for their needs.


NASA's international space contest "Nasa Space Apps Challenge Piraeus"
was hosted at the PPA


The "NASA Space Apps Challenge Piraeus" contest was held for the first time in Piraeus and a three-day hackathon was hosted at the PPA's events’ hall.

Developers, engineers, designers and artists worked together to find solutions on problems of space technology and social needs. The Deputy Manager of Public Relations, Investor Relations & Company Announcements Department Mr. Nektarios Demenopoulos, during his greeting, congratulated the organizers and expressed his joy and satisfaction that an important event which promotes new technologies, innovation and youth entrepreneurship, contributing to the openness of Greek scientists, is hosted at the PPA and in Piraeus.

With the above two events, PPA confirms and constantly updates its presence in the cultural and athletic life of the neighboring municipalities.
