ACDP has done it again! Constantly raising the bar for POM! This time is organising our very own Active City Port Moresby Pinktober Run. The first-time running event in Port Moresby was made possible with our partner, the French Embassy of Papua New Guinea, and sponsors Total Energy, Swire Shipping, the Europe Union Delegation to PNG, and Easy Skills place on the 29th of October 2022; from 5:00 am.
A total of K25,950 were raised, and all the funds from this run were collected by the Friends of POMGen and donated to the Cancer Ward of Port Moresby General Hospital to support cancer treatment.
“I thank the French Embassy to Papua New Guinea, Friends of POMGen, PNG Cancer Foundation, Ministry of Health, sponsors and partners for supporting this inaugural event in POM. I hope with the funds raised, Port Moresby General Hospital could carry out more activities to promote early detection through screening and diagnosis,” said NCD Governor, Hon. Powes Parkop.
Congrats and kudos to all of the 519 local and international participants making it to the finishing line of the 7KM run that started and ended at Sir Hubert Murray Stadium, following Champion Parade, Stanley Esplanade, and Bramell St. roads.
Judging from the successful inaugural running event looks like it’s going to be an annual running event! See you all again next year!
