About the event

Embark on a noble cause with Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM), as we unite to combat the devastating impact of malaria in our region, spanning Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Timor. RAM is at the forefront of the battle against malaria, particularly in Papua New Guinea, where it spearheads control programs to curb the spread of this deadly disease.

Beyond immediate interventions, RAM directs its efforts towards groundbreaking research for vaccine development, pushing the boundaries of scientific advancements in the fight against malaria. Our multifaceted approach includes comprehensive prevention strategies such as education, the distribution of bed nets, and the utilisation of eco-friendly insecticides, ensuring a holistic and sustainable impact on communities affected by malaria.

Operating with an annual budget of approximately $500,000, RAM prioritises efficiency by directing 100% of funds raised directly to the project. Notably, Rotary projects, including RAM, operate with no administration costs, guaranteeing that every dollar contributed goes towards the critical cause of malaria prevention.

Join us in this collective effort to make the world malaria-free by 2040, a Rotary World Goal that underscores our commitment to eradicating this debilitating disease. 

The upcoming event, scheduled for 10:30AM, invites participants of all ages to contribute to this mission with an entry donation of $5. Your participation not only symbolises solidarity but also directly funds RAM's initiatives.

After your run or walk, unwind with a refreshing drink and a delicious BBQ. Every penny raised during this event will be dedicated to malaria prevention, making a tangible difference in the lives of those most vulnerable.

Let's stride together towards a malaria-free future - your support at the event is not just a step but a leap towards a healthier and brighter world.
