Ready, set, go! Enter our charity run now!
Run for fun (and for charity!). The 5K family-friendly race will be held in Warsaw for the 13th time! Local editions of the race - their distance and form depend on the vision of the organisers - will take place across the country and abroad as well! All editions of the "Get Even with Diabetes" run have two things in common: firstly, they are all held in order to raise money to buy personal insulin pumps. These pumps will be rented, free of charge to women suffering from diabetes who are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant. Second - we all meet to have fun and promote a healthy lifestyle! Keep your eyes peeled for local editions of this event and read on to find out more about the Warsaw "Get Even with Diabetes" run!
Traditionally, we are going to welcome 5000 runners, who will compete in a 5K race taking them through the streets of the Polish capital city of Warsaw. Clad in bright-orange T-shirts, these runners are fantastic messengers of our idea - let's be healthy, have fun, and help those who need our support the most - by sharing whatever we can with the needy!
Find out more about the medical initiative we finance with the funds raised from the symbolic "sale" of race starter packets. You can learn more about our diabetes social awareness campaign the "Get Even with Diabetes" initiative here.
