On June 15, the summer edition of the nationwide ULTRAKREW social campaign began. You will be able to donate blood or blood components using the Ultrakrew password at any blood donation facility in the country between 15.06 and 31.08.2022. Summer is a special period of blood demand, when the number of donors is reduced and the blood demand increases at the same time.

Thanks to the cooperation with the Strategic Partner supporting the Globalworth Foundation, a unique sports event will be held for people who joined the campaign and donated blood or its components using the Ultrakrew slogan.

Run to the 35th floor of the Warsaw Trade Tower on August 6, 2022. One of the tallest and most beautiful skyscrapers in Warsaw. Like all activities in the various editions of Ultrakrwi, participation will be free.

The pass to participate in the race is to donate blood at any blood donation facility using the Ultrakrew password by 30.07. Taking a photo with a card with the words ULTRAKREW SUMMER during the donation and registering on the website. Importantly, blood can also be donated by another person for the player.

There are medals for all participants. The race will take place in the individual and two-person relay formula. In the case of the relay race, the Organizer symbolically wants to connect people who can donate blood with those who will never be able to donate blood. In the event of a large number of applicants, the Organizer will carry out a draw up to the predicted limit of participants.

"Blood transfusion is an indispensable component of health care. It contributes to saving millions of lives each year, both in routine and emergencies. The Globalworth Foundation is committed to the promotion of blood donation by encouraging people to care for each other and demonstrate social responsibility," Rafał Pomorski, board member of the Globalworth Foundation.

Thanks to the Ultrakrew campaign, which has been taking place for 5 years, over 3,300 liters of blood were collected, which gave a chance for statistical health and life of over 21,000 people.

"Blood cannot be produced artificially. The other person is the salvation for the needy. With all our activities, we try to encourage people to be with us. Donating blood is the best investment in ourselves or our loved ones. It is like an insurance policy. Today I am helping someone, tomorrow maybe someone will help me. I am very much looking forward to our strategic cooperation with the Globalworth Foundation. Together, we create a real CSR that is to involve people," Jacek Bastian - Ultrakrew Action Director.
