More corporates hold hands in “We Race Together” initiative

Following last week’s maiden announcement of six corporates who endorsed the We Race Together initiative, today Bank Windhoek, CRAN, Kasi Vibe Namibia and Nampower took the bold stand to join the podium.

The four corporates now join the list of Shoprite Namibia, Namib Mills, Erongo Marine Enterprise, Bipa, Namport, MTC and Namibia Airport Company as front runners in this initiative.

Launched in 2019 under the flagship of what has come to be referred to as the MTC Knockout Project, the initiative is aimed at creating a platform for corporate Namibia to join hands and raise funds to combat social ills in society. The initiative first tackled GBV and followed by homelessness which saw personalities from all walks of life first in a boxing ring, and secondly on stage singing a roof over the homeless Namibians. The last two editions raised a combined whopping N$2 million which was channelled to respective themed courses.

Thanking the corporates who joined the initiative today, MTC manager for Corporate Affairs and Sponsorship John Ekongo said, “We would like to thank all the corporates so far who took a bold stand to join us in raising funds that will be channelled to making our communities better. This is bigger than MTC, and for us, it is a delight to have like-minded corporates who understand that we can only become better when those who make us who we are have their wellbeing considered”.

Salmi Shigwedha of Kasi Vibe who also pledged an amount of N$30 000 said while the festival over the years has always been known to seek for funds to host their event, it was time to give back to society. “We are changing society and in order for us to change and effect positive change, we need to work together,” she said.

After endorsing Presidential Advisor Daisry Mathias in the last Knockout Project edition to carry their brand, Bank Windhoek this year has forked out N$60 000 towards the initiative. Speaking at the press announcement this morning, head of marketing Carmen-Rae Bridgens said this event seeks to achieve what the bank stands for.

On 23 April 2022 at the Independence Stadium, over 140 personalities will take part in a relay race to raise funds for the course. Corporates are encouraged to participate in a personality or a full team at a cost of N$30 000 per participant. All monies raised will be challenged to a charitable course at the discretion of all corporates.
