28th Grand Finale is filled with exciting novelties. Apart from moving to a new location, we will, for the first time, we break with tradition and move the date of our charitable run to January the 11th - but we have more news about the Get Even with Diabetes race!
Equipment for Mountain Search & Rescue
We have been joined by representatives of all Polish Volunteer Mountain Rescue Teams (GOPR) who received equipment from the hands of the chairman of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, Jurek Owsiak. Our Foundation supports the work of volunteers, who came to Warsaw to pick up 72 pieces of equipment. This time, we have donated "rescue backpacks" and professional paramedic bags, which are worth over 500 000 PLN.
Volunteer rescuers joined us to witness our attempt to set a new record of the biggest simultaneous CPR session which took place to celebrate European Restart a Heart Day. We hope that our initiative, which attracted over 100 thousand participants nationwide will help raise awareness of how important it is to learn CPR and first aid.
The medical objective of the upcoming Grand Finale fundraiser, which will take place on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 will focus on raising money to ensure the highest standards of diagnostics and care in paediatric surgery and treatment. Our motto is Wind in Our Sails!
Olga Tokarczuk donated the first official replica of the medal to the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to be auctioned off in aid of the medical objective of the Grand Finale fundraiser 2020.
