Miss Nigeria Beauty Pageant is proud and honored to announce its involvement with a noble cause this year.
In view of this, the 38th annual beauty contest presents a cause-based initiative tagged WALK-A-THON. This cause is dedicated to relieve victims of the September/October 2012 flood victims whose lives were wickedly affected by the natural disaster.
The flood had destroyed families – tearing them apart – homes, properties and social amenities. It was a sad case for victims at the time who are still suffering from the aftermath of the shocking experience.
For this reason, the Pageant has decided to give victims a helping hand and a shoulder to lean on. Join the Miss Nigeria Pageant Team to support the 1Heart, 1Purpose, 1 Voice Walk-A-Thon Campaign to hold on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at Civic Centre on Ozumba Mbadiwe VictoriaIsland Lagos at 8am.
Elohor Aisien, creative director of Miss Nigeria voiced out on the cause; “Alot of us have forgotten ourbrothers and sisters in the affected areas. A walk-a-thon would demonstrate oursympathy for those that had to flee their homes,”
There are also several other ways you can render help and show support or participate in the 1-1-1Campaign which include contributing relief materials (which will be collected at collection points on the day of the walk) and making monetary donations.
Also available will be designed T-Shirts that will go for N 2, 500. The proceeds from these will be used to benefit the victims.
Registration for the walk is free and sign up kicks off at the registration tent of the Civic Centre on Ozumba Nbadiwe street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
