Behind us is another start in the business dragon boat league competition, of which, as in previous years, we have become a sponsor. Although the event is of a sporting nature, there is a charitable purpose behind it - the funds raised, this year being a record-breaking one, were donated to the Dutkiewicz Home Hospice in Gdansk.
On 26th June, the fifth edition of the Dragon Boat Business League took place at the marina of the "Żabi Kruk" water club in Gdansk. Over the last few years, this not very popular discipline has gained a lot of fans, thanks to which this year's edition was a record one in terms of participants. Together with the JohnnyBros team, a total of 14 crews competed for the title of winner.
The more than 30-degree heat did not stop them from rising to the challenge, with all boats tackling a distance of 150 metres in the preliminary runs. After a stage of quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals, a winner was selected - London Stock Exchange Group, who we congratulate on winning and our team thanks for their fierce fight and willingness to help in any way possible!
This year's high attendance translated into the highest ever collection within the league - the organisers, Artur Czerwinski and the "Przygoda Gdansk" Sports Club, managed to raise over PLN 20,000 for the youngest dependants of the Dutkiewicz Hospice in Gdansk.
