EU Fun Run
Leading by example, the Minister for Health & Medical Services, Hon Jone Usamate took part in the European Union (EU) Fun Run that happened over the weekend.
Despite the early morning drizzle, Mr Usamate energized the crowd and thanked the EU for organising such an event.
“As we all know, July is NCD month, so there’s never been a better time to eat healthily and increase your physical activity. I want to see more events like this that promote Wellness. I firmly believe that all Fijians need to move more, and Fun Runs like this are a good way to motivate people”, he said.
Two races were run simultaneously along the Suva seawall, being 10km and 5km. The winners were:
5km Women: Maya Ramsden; Men: Jeremiah Shavneel
10km Women: Kati Doehring; Men: Raveneel Kumar
