With continued tremendous support from the Port Moresby business community, the Foundation raised a total of K144,380 through team registration fees, an auction and raffle sales to support their work.
Moo Engineering are the 2019 Oil Search Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge winners, finishing on top of 29 other teams.
“The fight against cancer is everybody’s fight,” said Ruth Waram, PNG Communications Manager, during the presentation after the event.
“Creating more awareness so that people know what to do and when to take action is critical – and the awareness conducted by the Cancer Foundation of PNG is important.
“Oil Search has been a passionate sponsor of the Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge since the event began in 2003. 2019 marks the 17th consecutive year that we have worked with Cancer Foundation PNG in helping to reduce the threat and impact of cancer in PNG through successful education, prevention and clinical support.
“All funds raised from the event will go towards bringing cancer education and awareness programs to various communities and schools throughout PNG in 2020 and of course, none of this would be possible without the participants and our prize sponsors.
“We look forward to this continued partnership which will ensure organisations such as Cancer Foundation can continue to carry out their programs,” Waram said.
Cancer Foundation PNG Executive Director, Priscilla Napoleon, when thanking supporters and sponsors, acknowledged Oil Search’s continued support over the years.
“Thank you to Oil Search who continues to support the Cancer Foundation through the Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge. The funds raised will go towards ensuring our awareness programs can be rolled out in 2020,” Napoleon said.
“Our awareness programs are focused on teenagers to ensure that the message of making healthier life choices reaches this group who are the future of this country.”
