​GG thanks POM residents

​The Governor-General has thanked the residents of Port Moresby for a big turnout at this morning’s Trukai Fun Run, to show support for Team PNG.

After reaching the finish line, GG Bob Dadae said Team PNG athletes have done a good job representing the country and putting PNG on the world map, and that the Fun Run was one way to keep supporting them.

“Thank you to everyone who took part today. For those who didn’t, I encourage you to join us next year,” said Dadae.

He added the Fun Run unites the people of PNG.

“It was fantastic. There was a good turnout this morning. It was good to see a lot of Papua New Guineans, young and old walking together.

“I could feel the sense of oneness and unity from the 800 different cultures. I could feel the emotion as people were walking happily together for a good cause,” Dadae.
