The PKO Białystok Half Marathon is also an important charity event. We have been doing this together since its first edition in 2013! During the 10th edition of the PKO Białystok Half Marathon, we will be raising funds for the „Jasny Cel” charity.
The „Jasny Cel” charity was established in December 2000 with the aim to help children with cerebral palsy. The charity’s mission is to provide comprehensive assistance to children with cerebral palsy and other motor impairments caused by damage to the central nervous system, as well as their families. The multilayer, interdisciplinary form of rehabilitation, which the organisation provides these children with, gives them the opportunity to achieve their optimum in life, at work, and in social contacts. At the moment, the charity is looking after about 80 children.
In September 2020, the „Jasny Cel” charity launched a non-public special school in order to prepare these children to work. Currently, the school has 12 pupils.
Since January 2017, the charity has also been running a public programme dedicated to adults aged 18-30 with injuries to the central nervous system. Each programme participant has the opportunity to attend group classes, as well as individual therapies dedicated to alternative and supportive communication, art therapy, sports and fitness activities, as well as psychological support.
In December 2022, the charity began to renovate their building in the centre of Białystok. Once the works are completed, the building will house a day care home and a respite care centre for adults with musculoskeletal dysfunction caused by damage to the central nervous system.
