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.
Charity match on Sunday!
We will be playing football for a good cause because all proceeds from the sale of tickets will go towards the purchase of a modern ambulance for Memorial Children's Hospital. We will be playing against the seasoned footballers and TV personalities playing for TVN station. Even though we are going to be rivals in the field, we have a common goal - not literally, of course! The proceeds from the sale of tickets will go towards covering the costs of purchase of an emergency ambulance outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment.
The teams have spent a busy summer honing their skills under the watchful eye of coaches from Diamonds Academy. Our captain, Jurek Owsiak, will lead a team consisting of friends and employees working at the foundation. The team is being guided by one of the best scorers in the history of Polish football - Włodzimierz Lubański. You too can join our team and don a limited edition "lucky 13" t-shirt.
The mobile service provider, Play, is kindly sponsoring our team. We will be facing some of the best known and loved TV personalities and together we will play not to win - but to help others help youngest patients in the Memorial Children's Hospital.
The star-studded teams will take the field on Sunday!
