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.
12th GOCC Run
The idea behind the 12th edition of the GOCC Run is to support two of our initiatives - the first one is, traditionally, focused on the purchase of personal insulin pumps for pregnant women with diabetes and, which is a novelty, to finance the running of our educational programme.
The family-friendly 5K run will take 5000 runners across the capital city - highlighting the importance of healthy choices. We also aim to draw public attention to the global diabetes epidemic.
Each participant of the run will receive a characteristic orange t-shirt. You can pick up your runner's packs in Sklep Biegacza, which is located in Warsaw. Make sure to register online by January 4th to be able to secure your participation in this fantastic sporting initiative!
If you are based outside Warsaw - don't worry about not being able to take part in the charitable run because there are local editions of the GOCC run - you can check if your local Collection Centre holds this sporting event here.
Wondering how much we raised since the first Grand Finale in 1993?
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!
