HRH PRINCE PHILIP RUNS FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES AT
24TH BELGRADE HALF-MARATHON
Belgrade, 17 April 2011 - HRH Prince Philip, son of Their Royal Highnesses
Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine, grandson of HM King Peter
II of Yugoslavia, participated in the Belgrade Half-Marathon today together with
his friends and many citizens of Serbia, as well as participants from abroad.
Prince Philip, his friends Ms. Lucy Attwood, Ms. Anna-Rose Martelli,
participated in the Half-Marathon, while their friend Mr. Daniel Cartwright ran
the whole Marathon to raise funds and sponsors for HRH Crown Princess Katherine
Foundation which will be used to help disadvantaged children in Serbia.
Prince Philip stated in his letter to donors: “All collected funds will go
towards disadvantaged children, which is something that I hold very close to my
heart. The Belgrade Half Marathon is very important to me as it is being held in
Belgrade, a city which both my family and I feel very connected to and also
because all the collected funds will go toward humanitarian goals. We would be
very grateful for your support”.
Prince Philip and the Royal Family would like to thank everyone that
supported this endeavour: Polimark doo, Megatrend University, Societe Generale
Bank Serbia, Cryo-Save (Life R.F d.o.o. Belgrade), H.E. Mr. Samuel Valis-Akyianu,
