Walkathon to raise funds for new hospital

The Phnom Penh-based Nokor Tep Foundation will be organising a Walkathon along the Mekong River on Saturday, March 24, to raise funds for a 220-bed Nokortep Women’s Hospital with facilities to deal with various ailments including cancer.

The three-hour activity will begin at 7am with participants needing to assemble at NagaWorld Casino & Resort at 6am before boarding a ferryboat across the river to Aray Khsat commune on the far side.

There will be a choice of a 10km or a 4km course to complete and walkers are advised to bring sun screen, mosquito repellent, good walking shoes, and a waterproof bag or container in case of rain for storing valuables.

Registrations can be made either at Tabitha-Cambodia Office, No 239, Corner of Street 51 and 360, Boeung Keng Kang 1, online at www.nokor-tep.net, or by phone to Nokortep officials on 095779282.

Organisers say they are taking every effort to make the event a fun and healthy experience, whilst raising awareness and funds to help women suffering in silence.

Walkers will be provided with caps, water along the way, soup at the finish and medical assistance if necessary.  

Those who mobilise sponsorship of US$100 will have their names engraved on the ‘Wall of Caring’ at the lobby of the proposed hospital.

Further details can be obtained from the website.
