On the final straight – the 21st edition of the Noble Package – athletes who represented Poland at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo joined the rescue. Two weeks before Christmas, on the so-called miracle weekend – December 11-12, 2021 – volunteers will go home all over Poland with packages containing things bought by benefactors.

Silver medalists in the 4×400 m relay Justyna Święty-Ersetic, Małgorzata Hołub-Kowalik, Natalia Kaczmarek, Iga Baumgart-Witan; world record holder in time climbing Ola Mirosław; volleyball players Kamil Semeniuk, Olek Śliwka, Łukasz Kaczmarek and medalists of the Paralympic Games in table tennis and high jump – Karolina Pęk and Maciej Lepiato – prepared the Noble Pack for the family of Mrs. Ania and Mr. Marek.


The Olympians help

– They waited a long time for a child and when the child finally appeared in the world, it turned out that he was ill and unfortunately had a genetic defect – says Ola Mirosław.

– I was captivated by the fact that these people do not really ask for some things for themselves, but for their child. Things that can help him because of his illness. A pulse oximeter or a car seat to transport a child for tests – adds runner Małgorzata Hołub-Kowalik.

The athletes have completed a package, which, in addition to the aforementioned equipment, also includes food and detergents.

– I am very glad that it is the group of Olympians that I am among who will buy, pack and deliver this help – admits volleyball player Olek Śliwka.

– These are small things that are very important for some, that I or others have every day and we do not realize that others need it and that we really do not have to do much to help them – argues Paralympic Karolina Pęk.

And you can help

The final of the action is on December 10. The final countdown will end under “Last Straight”. Our country’s representatives encourage mobilization.

– Athletes have the support of a trainer, physiotherapist or dietitian, but on the final straight, standing on the starting line, entering the athletics stadium, they are alone. It all depends on them. This is also the case in Paczka. You can influence how the final straight of this edition of the Noble Package turns out. You can choose a family and help – says Iga Baumgart-Witan, one of the silver medalists of the 4×400 m run.
