The 2nd Fun Run organized by the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) is going to be held in four different towns next month.  The theme for this year's run is "Running for Cancer," which is a global recognition of October as Cancer Awareness Month.  The NBC Fun Run aims to promote the well-being of NBC employees and the corporation strongly believes that healthy employees contribute to decreased absenteeism and increased productivity. This was emphasized by NBC's Employee Engagement Officer, Lucy Rocco.


"The NBC Fun Run is more than just a physical event. It is a testament to the power of unity and collective action. It represents the dedication of NBC, to the stuff, viewers and to the broader community, because we believe that by working together we can make many meaningful impact and contribute to the well-being of our society."

"Equally important is our commitment to extending the positive impact of this event to our local community as a further extension of our corporate social responsibility, and this will be held under the NBC Cares umbrella. The Miss Namibia Organization, as part of the NBC as well as local sports personalities will also join hands with us and run/walk.
