Hundreds participate in Mamedia walk

The Mamedia annual walk and blood donation exercise in Kumasi was held in Kumasi on Saturday with hundreds in attendance.

The Health Walk dominated by members of the northern zone National Supporters Union of Ghana and the Daddy Lumba Fan Club in the Ashanti regional capital and weekend revellers.

They walked from the stadium to Adum and back to the stadium.

They were later joined by members of the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) and other volunteer groups to donate blood to stock the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) blood bank.

Sponsors, MTN Ghana Foundation, SIC Insurance Company Limited, and M&G Pharmaceuticals all doled out cash and products to make the event a success.

The walk was also supported by Everpure Company Limited, Century Drinking Water and the Sports Hotel.

It was organised by the Mamedia Ventures in association with the Regional Blood Bank, the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, The National Youth Authority (NYA) and the Ashanti Regional Police/MTTU.

The Managing Director of Mamedia Ventures, Nii Maale Adsei, expressed delight at the numbers and hoped it would get better as the years go by.

He called for more corporate support to be able to provide more blood to KATH.
