Charity walk to raise cancer funds

 PNGFM Ltd will be sponsoring children living with cancer through the Port Moresby Cancer Relief Society (POMCRS) in its annual walk-a-thon. 

PNGFM, trading as NauFM, YumiFM, LegendFM and Total Event Company, launched the charity walk-a-thon on Monday.

The walk proper will be staged on Aug 24, from 6am to 10am. 

The walk-a-thon was initiated in 2010 with the idea of helping the less fortunate. 

Each year the company chooses a charity and helps raise money for it.

PNGFM charity committee chairwoman Rosemarie Botong said the concept had grown since its inception.  

“It’s always a good feeling to give back to the community and I’m proud to say that we have had the chance to touch and change lives,” Botong said. 

The company invited people to take part in the walk-a-thon by sponsoring a personality from PNGFM for K1,000 each to do the walk. 

The walk will be followed by a barbecue at Ela Beach and a shave off for radio personalities.
