With just days to the 2020 virtual Rotary Cancer Run, Buganda Katikkiro, Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga, has confirmed his participation in the upcoming virtual Rotary Cancer Run that is to be held on the 30th of August 2020.

The Cancer run has for the past 9 years attracted over 50,000 thousand participants from Uganda and the diaspora, who have joined effort towards fighting the Cancer scourge through the proceeds from the Rotary Cancer Run marathon and the charity drives.

During a press engagement at Bulange in Mengo, the Prime Minister, Buganda Kingdom, Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga, revealed that, “It is reassuring to see the organizers and partners of the Rotary Cancer Run keeping their goal of fighting cancer alive, despite the tides that have come with COVID-19 and I therefore hereby confirm my participation in this year’s virtual run, thanks to their relentlessness and drive exhibited.”

He explained that, “Fighting cancer is not just about buying machines and building bunkers, it embodies a number of aspects including exercising and nutrition, which lifestyles are pivotal in preventing Cancer,” adding that, “this program is beyond what meets the eye, and it is at this point that I call upon fellow Ugandans to participate in the forthcoming virtual Rotary Cancer Run this Sunday.”

In relation to the unprecedented times, organizers of the annual Rotary Cancer Run marathon have opted for a virtual run in observation of the Ministry of Health standard operating procedures in curbing the spread of the corona virus.

According to Stephen Mwanje, the Chair Uganda Rotary Cancer Programme, the virtual Rotary Cancer Run will be streamed live on Rotary Uganda official Facebook page and also broadcast on BBS Telefayina to enable participants to join in from the comfort of their homes or communities.

“Participants can use their vests from the previous years, and they can go ahead to post a picture or video on their social media platforms with the hashtag #RotaryCancerRun2020, dedicating it to a friend, or loved one and inviting them.” He noted.

While giving her remarks, Beatrice Lugalambi, General Manager Corporate Communications and Marketing at Centenary Bank stated that, “As a Bank, we have been part of the Rotary Cancer Run for 9 years now, majorly because the Rotary mission aligns well with our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives of supporting the communities where we serve,”
adding that, “For this reason, we earmarked up to Ushs 100 million as our commitment towards the Virtual Rotary Cancer Run 2020.”

All 74 branches of the bank are confirmed to be participating in this year’s Rotary Cancer Run.

“I urge everyone to be part of this cause by donating any amount because every coin counts. I also encourage us all to participate in this year’s run,” Lugalambi concluded.

SuperSport adopts new system for channels to make it easy for viewers to find their favourite sports

By Our Reporter

SuperSport has dropped the numbering system it has used for its channels for more than two decades, replacing them with a thematic offering around individual sports to ensure it makes it easier for viewers to find their favourite sports.

From September 1, SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv will be able to enjoy special dedicated channels for leagues and sports, among them the Premier League, La Liga, WWE, UFC, tennis, motorsport, golf and several others, which will now have a home to call their own.

New to DStv Premium customers across the continent will see the launch of SuperSport Grandstand, which will come immediately after Blitz at the front of the line-up. Grandstand will be hosted in studio on weekends and will guide viewers to the wide selection of sport on the World of Champions, cutting between live events and simultaneously directing viewers to the channel on which the best sporting action is available.

On DStv there will now be up to 19 SuperSport channels in all, including a “Variety” channel offering.

In addition, DStv’s new sports line-up also includes ESPN and ESPN 2, on channels 218 and 219.

GOtv offers 5 Supersport channels, plus the recently relaunched ESPN on channel 37 (137 -Ghana/337 – Uganda).

“This is a landmark decision in SuperSport’s history and one I’m convinced will add a fresh and invigorating dimension to our broadcasts,” said Gideon Khobane, Chief Executive of SuperSport. “The changes will mean that additional SuperSport channels of local and international sporting content will be added to the DStv and GOtv platforms.”

SuperSport broadcasts more live sport than any other broadcaster internationally and as much as these options are incredibly valuable to fans, the depth and breadth of content can make it difficult to find what they’re looking for. Exhaustive market research has shown that fans would prefer to enjoy the sport of their choice on a dedicated, named channel.

The new strategy will more closely align channel names in across the continent and will indicate a clear destination for fans’ favourite sports.

As the virtual Rotary Cancer Run nears, participants across the world are in high spirits to take part in a first of a kind virtual Rotary Cancer Run 2020.

Sensational Rugby Star Bryan Habana and Tyson Gay, an American Olympic 100 meter Gold medal winner have become the latest celebrated sportsmen to endorse the virtual Rotary Cancer Run.

“I encourage everyone one to take part in the Rotary Cancer Run so that we make Cancer history, as we stay fit and healthy” said Tyson, while Habana  mentioned that “you can all run or walk from the comfort of your homes virtually, anywhere in the world, to help kick cancer out of Africa” which validation was made in videos recorded by the two sportsmen.

The Rotary Cancer Run is organized by the Rotary Uganda and is sponsored by Centenary Bank who committed Ushs 100 million, Parliament of Uganda, and LycaMobile among others. The run will be held on 30th August 2020.

On the event day, the virtual Rotary Cancer Run will be streamed live on the Uganda Rotary Cancer Program website and official Rotary Cancer Run Facebook Page. Buganda Kingdom’s BBS Terefayina will also provide live broadcast of the proceedings.

“The day will kick start with aerobics at 7.00 am,” revealed Denis Jjuuko the Chairman of the virtual Rotary Cancer Run 2020.

Jjuuko added that “we continue to encourage Ugandans to donate towards this noble cause, as the proceeds from the run will be dedicated towards the construction of bunkers to house modern cancer treatment machines.”

“I therefore, call upon all Ugandans to take part in this year’s virtual Rotary Cancer Run, from the comfort of their homes or neighbourhoods. Please post a picture or video of yourself in your previous years’ vest on your social media platforms with the hashtag #RotaryCancerRun2020 and dedicate the run to a loved one suffering from cancer or may have died of cancer,” Jjuuko concluded.

PHOTOS: Fortebet winner gets UGX 422 million from 2K stake

A Fortebet winner is all smiles after bagging UGX 422 Million from a 2,000shs stake. Whatever praise you may want to heap on to this ticket is in no doubt very much deserving.

Three weeks ago, this winner (identity withheld for security reasons) tried out placing this ticket, not knowing that it will be his life changer.

He says that he was at home, about to go to bed, and decided to place the bet before sleeping off and forgetting all about it. “I placed this ticket at midnight. I wanted to sleep but had no sleep, so I said I should just try out selecting some matches. From that night, I even forgot all about this ticket,” the winner said in an interview.

He went on to add that; “I have been placing ticket for the last 2 years but without a single big win. This is the first time I am winning”. The first matches on his ticket (number 8020866558999999) were played on July 28 while the last on August 13. His 2-match ticket had 13 home wins, 3 away wins, and 4 over 2.5 goals. His ticket was a mixture of fat odds like Arsenal’s win over Chelsea in FA (odd 3.20) and as small as 1.30.”

Talking about how he felt immediately after winning, the winner said; “The Atalanta-PSG almost made me faint because the score was 1-0 upto the 90th minute yet I bet on over 2.5. Unbelievably, PSG scored in the 90th and 93rd minute to earn me the result I wanted.”

Fortebet paid out this win (422, 254, 752/=) to zero balance in cash as the winner wanted.

“I have always dreamt of becoming a big modern farmer and I think this is my time,” he explained on what he will use the money for, while he advised fellow bettors never to lose hope.
