Ramu, Lae residents looking forward to annual Fun Run


FOUR schools in Gusap, Ramu, were proud recipients of Trukai Fun Run T-shirts from sponsor Ramu Agri Industries Limited yesterday.
The schools were Ramu International Primary School, St Luke Primary School, Ramu Valley High School and Ramu Elementary School.
Each institution received 100 shirts that can be sold to earn extra income for the school to sustain its daily operations.
Ramu will join Lae residents and the rest of the country in the annual Trukai Fun Run on Sunday.
The Fun Run is the biggest fundraising event for the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee to raise money to help send Team Papua New Guinea to the regional and international sporting events.
Ramu Agri Industries marketing assistant Flora Anders told The National the company had been supportive in sponsoring schools in Ramu Valley for the Fun Run over the years.
“Our focus is on schools in Ramu Valley so we had to push hard to secure schools in the area,” she said.
“It is our community obligation to give back to the community of Ramu Valley through such activities where business has been fruitful over the years.”
Ramu International Primary School Principal Les Potter joined St Luke head teacher Victor Mollock, Ramu Valley High deputy Cesley Dion and Ramu Elementary deputy Dorothy Poya in acknowledge the donations.
“We are grateful to Trukai Industries and Ramu Agri Industries for the T-shirts which we will wear for the Fun Run,” Potter said.
