The 9-year old little John’s wish, who suffers from myelodysplastic syndrome, was to play with his classmates and his favorite players from Survivor 2017 and 2018.

So on Saturday, September 22, in John’s hometown and on one of the most beautiful beaches in Andros, Make-A-Wish and bwin created a huge obstacle course, inviting and “challenging” six players from both shows of Survivor and a “Survival” Game between Red Team – Lightning and Blue Team – Lightning started!

The teams consisted of John, his friends and the Survivors Konstantinos Vassalos, Ilias Gotsis, Katerina Dalaka, Sara Eskenazi, Irini Kolida and Melina Metaxa. Mr. Kostas Kastrandas, Principal of Gavrio Primary School, played the part of Sakis Tanimanidis, coordinating the games in the best possible way!

The winning team was Lightning, led by John, amid cheers and applause from the audience who had come to watch the fight.

John’s mother, moved, said: “Bless you all; I wish you will always be well to make children as happy as you made John today! Thank you is actually such a poor word to express my gratitude! These days, you have changed the lives of us all; I can’t believe what happened and we will certainly miss you a lot! Every moment has been imprinted on our minds… everything has been perfect, wonderful, fantastic! But something else has also happened; we have love you. You have remained in our hearts forever”!
