The bus will stop by the Henryk Reyman Municipal Stadium in Cracow on June 27, by the Wielka Krokiew in Zakopane on June 28, and by the Tauron Arena in Cracow on June 30. All those who can’t make it to our stationary points are welcome to the mobile blood collection point – said director Beata Mazurek.

During this festival of sports, we will show what is most beautiful in Malopolska and Poland, all the greatest values that we are proud of. One of them is to provide help. I am very happy that we can jointly propose a project during our Games, directed precisely to those who need this blood – said Marcin Nowak.
