CitiClub Sport “Socially Active” team runs in Orlen Warsaw Marathon

During the Orlen Warsaw Marathon, the joint representation of Citi Handlowy and Citi Service Center Poland ran to support the primary school in Turz. For every kilometer run or walked during the 10 km race or the marathon, Citi contributed 4 PLN to the noble cause. In this way, the CitiClub Sport “Socially Active” initiative managed to collect nearly PLN 7,144.


“Running is very big in Poland at the moment, not only as a way to celebrate a healthy lifestyle and one’s own development, but also in terms of meeting new people. This was a great chance for Citi employees in Poland to get to know one another better and to do something together for those in need, while having fun all the way,”
says Terri Gerosa, Head of Citi Service Center Poland.

As part of the CitiClub Sport project, 90 runners from 4 different countries took part in the 2nd Orlen Warsaw Marathon. Citi Handlowy and Citi Service Center Poland employees ran 1,786 kilometers, collecting 4 PLN for each kilometer to support the primary school in Turz.

According to Robert Ilczuk, Director of Risk Control and Compliance at Citi Handlowy and Head of CitiClub Sport, this year’s event has seen a record number of participants.

“Within only a week, we received nearly 100 applications from people willing to take part in the event, and we know that many more expressed their interest. That’s why we are planning future initiatives of that type to offer a team running opportunity to all people interested,” adds the Head of CitiClub Sport.

CitiCub Sport Socially Active is by no means the first such initiative of Citi Handlowy and Citi Service Center Poland. Last year, Citi employees took part in the 35th Warsaw Marathon, where the team of 13 ran the distance of 546 kilometers in total. Yet CitiClub is not just about sports. it is an initiative founded by employees for people who share common passions and interests. Every year, the team organizes various cultural, tourists, socially-oriented and educational events. CitiClub Sport members have not only run but also skied, sailed and played chess together.
