On your own feet – running or walking – on a bike, rollerblades or scooter… Do it the way you want and help build the Respite Care Centre for family caregivers, which is being built in Gdańsk on the initiative of the Hospice Foundation.


We run, we walk, we ride together!

This is the fifth time that the Santander Foundation has organised a run for the Gdańsk Hospice Foundation. The four previous editions were attended by 4623 people. 227k was raised. £. This year, we invite you to participate in two formulas: stationary and virtual.

  • Stationary , i.e. you can run with the employees of both Foundations, covering a distance of 7.4 km, from Work Cafe Santander in Olivia Centre to Plac Zebrań Ludowych.
  • Virtually, which means you can run in any part of the world where you happen to be.


What is the purpose of the run? Lofty!

Support for the construction of the Respite Care Centre, which is being built in Gdańsk on the initiative of the Hospice Foundation. The Respite Care Center is a place that will provide care for sick children and adults, and give their families a moment of rest. People who take care of sick relatives at home tend to be tired, burnt out, and overloaded with responsibilities. Just like all of us, they need at least a short vacation, a moment of respite, during which they can rest, take care of their needs and simply recharge their batteries. The Respite Care Center wants to admit its first residents as early as 2023. Learn more.
