NBC is running for cancer

The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) recently launched the second edition of their Fun Run, set to take place in different areas this October. 

The run is designed to promote wellness, foster community spirit, and raise awareness and support for those affected by cancer. 

The NBC Fun Run will take place on the following dates and locations: Windhoek on 7 October, Katima Mulilo on 14 October, Oshakati on 21 October and Rundu on 11 November 2023. 

This year’s theme, ‘Running for Cancer’ coincides with the global recognition of October as Cancer Awareness Month, uniting Namibians in a powerful demonstration of solidarity and support for those facing this challenging journey. 

The aim is to show support to cancer patients and survivors, and show unwavering support, celebrating strength and resilience, while at the same time enhancing the well-being of NBC employees. 

NBC public relations manager Beaulah Boois-Beukes said at the launch of the event last week that the Miss Namibia Organisation, along with sports personalities, will join hands to run, walk and strut for cancer. 

She added: “This is a unique opportunity to meet and greet your country representatives, who will be taking to the international stage later this year and next year, along with our sporting heroes and heroines. The event encourages our staff and members of the public to prioritise their health and fitness”. 

The run is open to all – from avid runners to families and individuals of all fitness levels. 

Participants can choose from various categories to run or walk, ensuring that the event is inclusive and accessible to everyone.
