The annual fun run event is said to be even bigger this year.
Chief Executive Officer of Kalang Advertising Limited, John Mong, while presenting the fun run T-Shirts to schools said, the event will coincide with the Pacific Games, as it will take place on July 5th after the opening ceremony.
Kalang Advertising Limited, trading as FM100 and Hot97FM, has officially handed over six hundred Fun Run T-Shirts to the Carr Memorial and the Holy Rosary Primary Schools in the Nation’s Capital.
Mr Mong added that the distribution of shirts is their way of promoting the fun run goals and objectives, as well as showing their engagement with the community and supporting community services.
He said the event is not only a major fund raising drive for Papua New Guinean Athletes, but an event that brings together many different people, therefore, they are happy to be associated with Trukai Industries Limited and the PNG sports Federation.
With the Pacific Games just three days away, he said as a broadcasting organisation, they will do their best while providing live coverage during the games.
This year’s Fun run T-shirts are special as they come with a medallion for participants to keep as souvenirs.
