Preparations for the 2017 edition of the Łódź Business Run are in full swing and the registration process will be open from today (06.06.17). At a press conference held at the “Przerwa” restaurant, organizers and beneficiaries discussed the Łódź Business Run 2017 relay race.
The 2017 edition will already be the sixth edition of the country’s biggest run. This year, participants will run in seven Polish cities: Łódź, Krakow, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Poznan, Gdansk and Katowice. In 2016, over 16,000 people from 1118 companies took part and collected more than one million zloty.
Employees of Polish based companies will run for those in need. The goal is to help people with mobility impairment to return to normal life. The proceeds will be spent on rehabilitation and the purchase of prostheses for the disabled which will also be of psychological help for those affected.
– The result is not important, participation and integration are important. We are all one community. In Łódź people like to run. Let us show once again that Łódź can do it! – said Łódź President Hanna Zdanowska.
