Live and learn English


Heart of gold, legs of steel

Sharing is caring!

Michael Xuereb

What was EC’s own CEO, Michael Xuereb (second from the left), up to last Sunday, the day of rest? Take a guess…

  • Full English breakfast in bed
  • A brisk walk along the promenade, or
  • An end of summer swim…

None of the above!

He woke up to a 51 k run (!) in aid of The Ladybird Foundation (, an honourable cause which gives terminally ill children a last wish.

Now, isn’t that just admirable? Here are a few words from the brave man himself:

What keeps me going is the purpose of this run, which is to give children with terminal illnesses a last wish. The funds are given to underprivileged families who do not have the means to take their child on that last holiday – whether it is Disneyland or to watch their favourite sports team.

What’s more, Michael and his four friends created a site to make it easy for people to donate: EC Malta and EC Head Office also showed their support by organising and attending a charity walk to help raise more funds.

Well done to all those who walked, ran or contributed to the cause, and kudos to Michael Xuereb for such a fantastic feat!
