In a bid to support the efforts towards alleviating the sufferings of Nigerians affected by recent flooding in some parts of the country, the 38th Annual Miss Nigeria beauty pageant is presenting a Walk-A-Thon. The event is billed for Saturday 15th December 2012 at the Civic Centre on Ozumba Mbadiwe Victoria Island Lagos beginning from 8am.

According to a statement from the organiser of the Pageant, the Walk is aimed at raising awareness of the sufferings being faced by the flood victims in order to attract help from members of the public.?? ?

?The September/ October 2012 flood massively destroyed families, properties, homes and other social amenities. This has rendered many homeless and exposed them to harsh aftermath of a natural disaster. Join the Miss Nigeria Pageant Team in support of the 1 Heart, 1Purpose, 1 Voice Walk-A-Thon Campaign on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at Civic Centre on Ozumba Mbadiwe Victoria Island Lagos at 8am,? the statement said.

“A lot of us have forgotten our brothers and sisters in the affected areas. A walk-a-thon would demonstrate our sympathy for those that had to flee their homes,” says Elohor Aisien Creative director Miss Nigeria.

In support of the welfare of those who were affected, there are several ways to donate and participate in the 1-1-1 Campaign.

?The walk will be held on Saturday 15th December 2012. Registration for the walk is free but we welcome donations in the form of relief materials and monetary contributions,?? it said.

Customised designed T-Shirts are available for N 2,500 with the proceeds to benefit flood victims. Registration sign up begins at 7:30am at the registration tent at Civic Centre on Ozumba Mbadiwe Victoria Island Lagos.
