OVER 1,000 PEOPLE GRACE FORTEBET-JINJA SICKLE CELL RUN

By WN Admin

Jinja – Fortebet, Uganda’s betting giant has continued to show its commitment to saving the lives of Ugandans living with sickle cell. Fortebet committed a whole Shs15m to fighting the deadly disease, part of which was used to organize the run on Sunday last weekend.

                                 Many school kids took part in the run.

This money was handed over to Raising Hope International Friends, an organisation that works hand-in-hand with the government of Uganda to fight the scourge.

                Alex Muhangi and other officials ready to flag off the run.

Available information from the Ministry of Health indicates that 20,000 babies are born with sickle cell every year. Unfortunately, due to inadequate treatment and care, 80% of them die before the age of 5.

                                        The run was massively attended

This is very worrying and is the main reason we came on board to save lives,” said Alex Muhangi, Fortebet brand ambassador talking to the runners shortly after the run. The run was graced by Busoga First Deputy Prime Minister, Ahmed Noor.

                           There was an aerobics session before the run.
