About us

The Foundation was established in March 2013, at the initiative of Caroline Bierbaum LeFrak, who, due to her Polish roots, is deeply interested in the situation of athletics in Poland. Coming back to Poland – the country of her grandfathers – Caroline wants to actively participate in the development of this sports discipline among children and young people.
