Grand Finale 2021 looks to be an unprecedented fundraiser, and we do all within our power to inspire people to find some joy and hope for the upcoming months. For those, who choose to stay home, we rolled out different forms of online giving.
International Collection Centre Convention in Brussels
This unofficial convention is a great opportunity for all of us to meet the people who are giving their absolute best and make our success go global. It is also a great opportunity to network, exchange experiences and share ideas and good practices. We are also delighted by the fact that our meeting has the patronage of European Parliament - a high honour indeed!
We will meet the representatives of Collection Centres from Belgium, Germany, Norway, England, Scotland, Jersey, the US, France, the Netherlands, and Ireland. We hope that this meeting will bring about a lot of new ideas and will foster new friendships and will allow our international Collection Centres to grow and develop their initiatives!
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 15th edition of our Get Even With Diabetes run could not take place as it always has—in the heart of Warsaw, with hundreds of runners in the iconic orange run t-shirts. Instead, this year the run went digital!
What's the plan for the Grand Finale 2021? Our fundraiser might culminate in a one-day extravaganza on January 31st, 2021, but the run-up to the event and the days after the Grand Finale are important for us as well.
