Amateur sport sponsoring

We popularize physical activity and preventive healthcare. We activate local communities and maintain social bonds. 

In 2020 only, ORLEN supported 70 institutions, sports projects, clubs and associations. Approximately 327 thousand children from all around the country participated in our projects.

We support running competitions that connect generations and local communities.

The project allows us to popularize running as a pleasant form of activity and healthy leisure.
