Games Help

Athletes from the maritime zone and rural schools will be receiving free track and training shoes when they turn-up for the 2015 Coca-Cola Games, which starts on Friday.

This initiative was announced by the Rotary Club of Suva president Ajay Bhai Amrit at the Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji plant, Laucala Beach, Suva, yesterday.

Amrit, also a local television said the initiative was in partnership with several sponsors to help less-privileged athletes.

“It’s an initiative where we give brand new joggers and track shoes to needy students in the Coca-Cola Games,” Amrit said.

“Our aim was for five hundred pairs and as of today, we have over 700. We are going to give joggers to needy students and most importantly, rural students from all over the islands and rural parts of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu because they don’t have the access and the economic firepower to afford.

“We’ve got a few sponsors who’ve been very kind and helped us to buy the items. We are very thankful to have them participating in this project. We’re happy to have this project every year and make it bigger and better.

“Overall, we have over 2000 athletes and maybe on both days we can everyone that is participating a pair of joggers, shoe bags and track shoes.

“I’ll be giving them out on the day. Logistically it’s going to be hard but we’re going to do it. The Project is good.”

Joining the Rotary Club of Suva are Coca-Cola, Pacific Energy, FIJI Water, Mark One Apparel and the British High Commission.
