Pini, who has represented PNG for over 20 years said events like the Trukai Fun Run have been a huge benefit for the men and women of Team PNG.
He gave an example saying Team PNG’s participation at the Rio 2016 Olympics was made possible through the support of Trukai Industries and people buying Fun Run T-shirts.
“I would really like to appeal once again to the corporate community to out their hands up and bid for T-shirts at the auction for Team PNG and for schools.
“Through your support, PNG athletes such as myself were able to represent our country on many occasions, striving to better ourselves and influence positive change with our experience.
“The Fun Run also helps deliver a positive message about being involved and active in life and I encourage everyone to get involved. All your support will be greatly appreciated,” said Pini.
