Although one of the most spectacular moments of each Finale of the GOCC - the run of several thousand participants through the streets of Warsaw – is still few hours away, the 16th "Get Even with Diabetes" run is already underway, thanks to the virtual form, which was launched on Monday, 24th January.
Two Locations in Kołobrzeg Named After our Charity
Jurek Owsiak joined the president of the city of Kołobrzeg Anna Miecznikowska to symbolically unveil the official name of the new roundabout located in the vicinity of the seaside boardwalk. The city council of the spa town decided to name one of its roundabouts after our Charity in 2019, but the official unveiling of the name took place this week.
Another spot in the beautiful seaside town which serves to commemorate one of our everyday heroes - volunteers who commit their time and efforts in aid of our winter fundraising initiative. One of the symbols of the seaside town is a curious seagull, Marian, who takes up different guises. This time the statue depicts the seagull with the most important attribute of our volunteer - our Collection Box. The statue is located in the city centre and will surely become one of the focal points of the town!
This year we are playing to ensure the highest standards of sight diagnostics and treatment in children. Although it is the first time that the January collection is dedicated to this issue, these are not the first actions undertaken by the WOŚP Foundation in support of sight treatment and diagnostics.
New medical equipment has been delivered to a hospital in Hajnówka, where refugees, who were stranded on the Polish-Belarussian border received urgent and much-needed medical care.
