Summary of Rally for Health 2023

25 Oct 2023

The third edition of the Cycling Rally for Health, organized by the Wieslawa Adamiec Carita Foundation, took place in Poznań on September 2, 2023. This year's event, in Poznań and various places in Poland and Europe, was attended by more than 350 participants, who rode a total of 7,000 km.

The main goals of the rally's organizers were to show that hematooncological disease does not exclude patients and their loved ones from a normal life, and that physical activity positively affects not only physical but also emotional well-being.

During the event, funds were raised to support the realization of special goals: the modernization and creation of a friendly chemotherapy day room for all hematooncology patients being treated at the University Clinical Hospital in Poznan, and the retrofitting of a physiotherapy room in the Hematology Department at the L. Rydygier Regional Hospital in Torun.

Hundreds of examinations and consultations were carried out as part of the side events, thanks to 9 partners thriving in the Health Zone. These were: FuraZdrowia Association for Helping Sarcoma and Melanoma Patients, Osteobus Pro&Diagnostic, National Health Fund, DKMS Foundation, Comarch Healthcare- Mobile Diagnostic Point, PARS - Polish Amazons - Social Movement, Medicover Foundation, Amicus Foundation for Psoriasis and Lupus, Voxel - Radiological Consultation and Imaging Studies.

The involvement of such a large group of participants in the Rally for Health proved that hemato-oncology patients suffering from plasmocytic myeloma, lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia can actively participate in society, as well as count on the support of others. Together with the Carita Foundation, we invite everyone to the next edition of the Rally, which will be held in the fall of 2024.

See you next year!
