Just like last year, Race Around Poland will support the campaign Filipowe Kilometry!!!
According to the data published by Autism Europe, associating organizations from 38 European countries, including 25 EU member states, governments, as well as European and international institutions, autistic disorders affect 1 in 100 people, which means that in the EU alone, over 5 million people are affected.
The scale of the phenomenon and the associated limitations make particularly important those actions that, apart from helping specific beneficiaries directly, disseminate the knowledge about autistic disorders to help recognize their symptoms and diagnose them earlier, enable access to professional care and therapy, and carry the positive message that the disease, although not easily, can be overcome!
Probably no one has managed to link this message with the spirit of sports more accurately, fighting own barriers and encouraging to ride more and more kilometers by bike, than Dawid Salamon, the father of Filip and the founder of Filipowe Kilometry 🚴
The idea of the action is to fight own limitations, as Dawid’s son, Filip, does every day, and to ride the "Filipowe Kilometry" together with other participants. Those of the participants who register their participation via Strava, pay a donation to the bank account of Fundacja Dzieciom "Zdążyć z Pomocą", ul. Łomiańska 5, 01-685 Warsaw, Alior Bank 42 2490 0005 0000 4600 7549 3994, with a note: 25489 SALAMON FILIP – DAROWIZNA NA POMOC I OCHRONĘ ZDROWIA, and travel the 1503 “Filipowe” kilometers, will receive jubilee medals and campaign gadgets 🏅🏅🚴♀️🚴
We are pleased to announce that, in accordance with the assumptions of the action, the Race Around Poland organizers will pay PLN 0.01 for each kilometer of the route traveled by the race participants. In addition, we encourage each participant and fan to become an ambassador of the campaign and obtain occasional gadgets for cycling 1503 km (which is “just” less than a half of the route)!
Together with Filipowe Kilometry, we’re also preparing some extra entertainment that will be of interest to both participants and fans - we’ll inform you about the details on the website, our Facebook and other media, so stay with us! We encourage you to support this outstanding initiative!!! 😊
