Africa World Airlines (AWA), a Ghanaian airline company, has partnered with Medivent Consults, organisers for the first edition of the Sekondi-Takoradi Marathon (Taadi Bronya).
AWA becomes the first official sponsor of the event.
The marathon, which is scheduled for December 26, under the mandate of the Western Regional Coordinating Council (WRCC), will see thousands troop to the Oil City and battle for the juicy packages at stake.
The Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Africa World Airlines, Kwasi Oteng, was elated with the partnership, adding that they were looking forward to promoting sports tourism in the region.
“We are grateful for partnering the Sekondi-Marathon and it is not only important to connect communities commercially but also socially, especially through sports. We want to use this opportunity to promote sports in the country and we at Africa World Airlines are ready to provide the best of comforts for all traveling to the region,” he said.
The General Manager of Medivents Consults, Henri Penni General, expressed appreciation to AWA for the support.
“With few days to the launch of the event, this package for all I can say is timely. We look forward to having a fruitful partnership with AWA,” he added.
The Sekondi-Takoradi Marathon, an initiative of Medivents Consult and Total Marketing & Tours Limited, is expected to cover a distance of 21 kilometres (half marathon), and it will be part of the activities marking the popular Ankos Festival (Taadi Bronya).
