'Plus ratio quam vis' Medal for Jurek Owsiak
Jurek Owsiak received 'Plus ratio quam vis' Medal from the members of the Senate of Jagiellonian University. The Latin name of this award translates as 'mind over strength' and the founder of the Foundation has been recognized for his tireless commitment to improving the level of care offered to patients in public hospitals in Poland and support that the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has offered to University Children's Hospital in Krakow, in particular.
Each Grand Finale fundraiser has a medical objective - we raise money to buy equipment for children's hospitals. Each year, we set a very clear fundraising goal. This year we are going to support paediatric surgery and subsequent treatment.
A vibrant, diverse group of people decides each year decides to become volunteers and commit their time effort to raise money in aid of our wonderful initiative. We wanted to know who they are.... so we asked you!
