PPC sends a strong message for equality and inclusion

The unique dance act “OUR Final Countdown” was presented for the first time by PPC, featuring Nikos Galis, during halftime of the Greek Men’s National Basketball Team’s game against the Dominican Republic at the 2024 Olympic Basketball Qualifying Tournament, held at SEF on July 3rd. The top Greek athlete, along with a group of 40 artists and players, including individuals with disabilities, starred in this performance. Set to the anthem of the 1987 EuroBasket, the act was directed by Konstantinos Rigos.

The spectators at the Peace and Friendship Stadium (SEF), were there to support the Greek National Team’s effort to qualify for the “Paris 2024” Olympic Games, and witnessed a show with significant messages about equality and inclusion in sports and beyond.

Alongside Nikos Galis, actress Loxandra Loukas, the first woman with Down syndrome to perform at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Lenia Zafeiropoulou, and internationally recognized tenor Dimitris Paksoglou joined forces with the “phenomenon” group En Dynami and MC Yinka on the microphone, setting the rhythm with his unique flow “All Equal, All Here …Power Up the Game.” Together, they delivered a powerful message of inclusion and equality.

As an integral part of the country’s social and economic fabric, PPC actively supports talent, passion, and fair competition, while also promoting equality and inclusion.
