Help from the PKO Foundation
For many years the PKO Bank Polski Foundation has been involved in initiatives for the public good in the areas of education, upbringing, social welfare, protection and promotion of health, culture and art, environmental protection, including activities supporting the development of communities and local communities, and promoting social goals in the environment banking and volunteer organization.
Recognizable among the runners of the bank’s charity campaign is primarily participation in the campaign: I run for… (Biegnę dla…) which the foundation has been organizing for 6 years. At that time almost 400 such actions took place in Poland, in which over 165 thousand people took part. I run for… (Biegnę dla…) is a race dedicated to a chosen person, thanks to whom you can help and collect funds, among others: for treatment or rehabilitation. In addition, a permanent element of the marathon weekend is the interactive town of PKO Bank Polski, which entertains, develops, but also educates. During the last edition of the event, all interested children and adults could try their hand at athletics competitions, take part in first aid demonstrations, seek advice in the health zone or meet with famous athletes.
For several years, the bank has also been a partner of the BiegamBoLubię campaign, which encourages active spending of time and training under the supervision of professionals. As the initiator of many running events in Poland, it supports young talents and drives new generations to develop.
