Anitua Limited will be co-hosting the Trukai Fun Run (TFR) this year as the official organizing partner on Lihir Island.
“We accepted the invite from Trukai Industries Ltd (TIL) to host this event on their behalf on Lihir because we see this is a great platform to purse our fundraising efforts to suppor Kavieng General Hospital”, said Anitua Executive Director, Patrick Labongis.
“Our Corporate Service team this year has focused its health advocacy on early detection and prevention of cancer.
” We’ve been planning a number of fundraising initiatives to donate to the Cervical Cancer Screening Clinic at Kavieng General Hospital thus the Trukai Fun Run is timely,” said Mr Labongis.
While funds raised will go towards supports Team PNG to the 2023 Pacific Games, Anitua Ltd plans to donate its portion to Kavieng General Hospital’s Cervical Cancer Screening Clinic as part of the company’s effort to continue educating staff as well as Lihirians about the importance of early detection.
” We are hoping to see at least 2000 participants paint Londolovit yellow with their TFR shirts on Sunday 20th August 2023,” said Event Lead Nancy Gah.
“Shirts will be selling at Anitua Supermarket, Anitua Corporate Services office and on the weekends at the Lihir Sports and Social Club. We encourage everyone on the island to buys a t- shirt and support two worthy causes,” she said.
