Come join the Poland Business Run
POLAND The Poland Business Run is to take place for the fourth time on Sunday September 3rd in eight cities.

In Warsaw, the route of the charity run goes through the office area in Warsaw’s Służewiec district and 5,000 runners will take part to raise money for the rehabilitation of the disabled. Register your team now and change somebody’s life! Helping a good cause, promoting an active lifestyle, integrating businesses with the local community as well as a great atmosphere – In short, this is what makes the Warsaw relay race, which is part of a countrywide event, so special.

The starting gun will go off at 10:30 in eight Polish cities: Warsaw, Poznań, Kraków, Katowice, Łódź, Gdańsk, Wrocław and Lublin. The first charity run took place in 2012 in Kraków and was organised by the Jasiek Mela’s ‘Beyond Horizons’ foundation, UBS and Radisson Blu Hotel Kraków. “When we first organised this charity relay race six years ago, we couldn’t have imagined that the event would spread countrywide across Poland,” says organiser Agnieszka Pleti, the president of the Poland Business Run foundation “It is really exciting to see more and more people every year taking part, both individuals as well as companies due to whom we now help so many people. Just last year we managed to raise over PLN 1 mln, which was spent on equipment, prosthetics and therapy. We managed to help as many as 78 people,” she adds. In Warsaw the run has been taking place since 2014 and every year it attracts not only runners but also spectators including the families and friends of the runners. The organisers have set aside a relaxation zone as well as a Kid’s zone for the young ones and the young ones. The Warsaw Business Run is only possible thanks to the work of over 550 volunteers who help organise the event. This year the route starts from Empark down ul. Wołoska and ul. Domaniewska. “The Warsaw Business Run is a project organised by companies for companies to give them the opportunity to create one of the largest all-Poland CSR projects. There is no other event like it in the capital that both strengthens the ties between local companies as well as the ties that bind together the business community. We all come together for a deserving cause to help the disabled,” explains Maciej Stefaniak, the project manager behind the Warsaw Business Run. Teams of five will run the 4.2 km course in relays. So far the Poland Business Run has changed the lives of 138 people, including the 17 beneficiaries of the Warsaw run. These people include those who have had limbs amputated, people suffering from congenital defects, whose with spinal injuries and with disabilities resulting from cancer, diabetes and atherosclerosis. One of those who is to be helped this year is Konrad Molis, who lost his right leg as a result of an accident. However, he has not allowed his disability to dictate how he lives his life. Since losing his leg he has taken up rowing and has started work as a teacher. Those taking part in the Warsaw run will help him purchase a prosthetic leg . The charity event is supported by: Barbara Kurdej-Szatan, Adrianna Palka, Rafał Sonik, Mateusz Kusznierewicz and Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, the mayor of Warsaw. The Warsaw Business Run is also supported by Accenture, Baker McKenzie, Carlsberg, Citi, Courtyard, Credit Suisse, Echo Investment, Galeria Mokotów, Goldman Sachs, Hays Poland, Immofinanz, Marriott Warsaw, PKP Cargo, PP Elpro and T-Mobile.
