It's Saturday evening, and we still have hours to go before the Grand Finale fundraiser... and we already raised PLN 11 850 688! It's PLN 1 700 000 more than last year. We are beginning like we mean to go on.
Final of CPR for Schools competition in Warsaw!
We jumped at the chance to take kids who flawlessly performed in the two previous stage of the competition on an adventure. The first stage of our competition was to prepare a home-made educational poster and the second, much more demanding one required students to come up with their own board game. The beautifully crafted and ingeniously prepared board games tested the players' knowledge about first aid and CPR.
The winners were invited to Warsaw to take part in a location-based game. Taking the kids across some of the most well-known landmarks of the capital. Exciting tasks took place in National Museum, historic PASTA building, and at the Museum of Warsaw Uprising - among others. Teams which had to navigate a map and complete the tasks with utmost precision and speed. Each task focused on elements of first aid and tested their skills, reflexes, and teamwork abilities.
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.
With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
