Our charity run
The weather might be frightful, but on the day of the Grand Finale, on Sunday, January the 13th many of you will be taking part in different editions of the charitable run. The main event - the Get Even with Diabetes run - will take place in Warsaw.
The 5000 participants will take part in the 5K run across the capital city, but there are local editions of the race held in different towns and cities across Poland and in three locations abroad: in Watford, UK, in Dublin, the Republic of Ireland, and in Sandnes, Norway. It is worth noting that the Irish edition of the run will be a 24-hour relay run across the capital.
Our aim is to raise money for the purchase of personal insulin pumps, which are then rented out to pregnant women with diabetes. On top of that, the run and its different, local editions are a great way to promote a healthy lifestyle, raise awareness, and show our support to people with diabetes.
Volunteers from Collection Centres in Holland met to discuss new ideas, plans for the future fundraiser, and compared experiences of holding our vibrant fundraiser in the Netherlands.
Pol’and’Rock Festival is a great summer Festival where our volunteers who work hard during the winter fundraising concerts can be rewarded for their hard work. Although this is a time to celebrate and fest this is also a place where one can learn lots of useful skills that complement our Foundation’s mission.
