THE Eastern Highlands electorate of Obura-Wonenara took part for the first time in a Trukai Fun Run event last week.
For the people it was of Obura a special experience to be part of a national event.
The Fun Run T-shirts were sponsored by O-WAN, which is an acronym for Obura-Wonenara.
Local MP Mehrra Minne Kipefa commended O-WAN for sponsored five hundred T-shirts with along with Vita water bottles.
Next year the number would increase so more people in the district would have a chance to participate.
