The action "Throw for the Cure" was initiated
by the mayor of Bialogard
Stefan Strzalkowski, who in the past was a champion himself
in ‘rolling a beer barrel’. Strzalkowski declared that Weronika
would get a new laptop as a result of Dariusz
Slowik’s world record.
Slowik throws kitchen furniture and other large metal
objects for fun, health but also for a greater cause.
In 2003, Dariusz
Slowik- a discus thrower when he is not chucking washing
machines - set a world record in ‘car pushing’, collecting
100.000 dollars for a Canadian boy suffering from cancer.
