Thirty-nine year- old Luke Fuller, an English teacher at the International School Suva will be running from Nadi to Suva from October 10 – 13 to raise funds for a heart monitor for the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.

The initiative is co-ordinated by a Year Nine student of the school, Ella Sinclair.  She is also organising a Suva marathon along the Nasese seawall and Laucala Bay Road. Many students and staff from ISS will be taking part in this marathon which will be held on October 4.

However, Mr Fuller will be running the Nadi to Suva marathon solo because he feels that is his way to give back to Fiji.

He said, “I feel very fortunate to be able to give something back to the society in a very tangible way; especially to a place I have called home for three years.”

Mr Fuller has been preparing for a month now. He has been running 50 kilometres for the past few days with weights that he carries in a backpack.

He is also preparing well and is keeping his fitness level up through participating in boxing, rugby, squash and zumba. He will be running an average of 50km per day over the four days.

Mr Fuller is hoping to assist Ella and the Global Perspectives team from ISS raise $6000 from this initiative.

He has taken part in marathons before in Australia but this is his first attempt at something this long. He is, however, very confident he will complete this run.

“The cause is much needed for our country and I do hope there will be more people interested to participate in these fundraising efforts in the future,” Mr Fuller said.
