200 Police Recruits In Morning Walk

About 500 people turned up at Albert Park in Suva last Saturday to take part in the Westpac Morning Walk.

Westpac communications manager Jyoti Maharaj said out of the 500 participants, 200 hundred were new recruits of the Fiji Police Force.

“Officers of the Fiji Corrections Service (FCS), students of Ballantine Memorial School, event supporters and President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau participated in the event,” Ms Maharaj said.

She said the Toso Dance Group led an aerobics session and refreshments were provided by Nestle.

“There were people of all ages who participated; the families had lots of fun,” she said.

Meanwhile, Corrections spokeswoman Kuini Waqasavou said they supported the Westpac Morning Walk because it was part of the city’s Civic Pride Programme.

“This is also one way that we can address and promote awareness of non-communicable diseases among our officers,” Ms Waqasavou said.

She said physical training was part of their weekly programme at the Corrections Service and participating in the walk would boost the morale of their officers and strengthen team bonding.

“This will not be the last of the physical activities for them to participate in but we will continue partnerships with other stakeholders as well.

“We will be having our own fun run in October this year and we hope to gather as much support from members of the public, organisations and companies,” Mrs Waqasavou said.
