The Holy Trinity Cathedral Suva members did their monthly ‘The Walk for Life’ last Saturday to promote healthy living and to combat non communicable diseases.

Over 60 people took part in the fourth ‘Walk For Life’ event which is a seven kilometre walk from the cathedral along the Suva waterfront and back beginning at 6am.

One of the organisers Julie Sutherland said that there was breakfast provided for those who took part in the walk and that it was open to all the members of the public.

Ms Sutherland said: “It was a beautiful morning and it really made us all value our health and appreciate every morning of every day we are blessed with.”

The Dean of the Cathedral, Reverend Claude Fong Toy said: “Two cancer survivors from the Fiji Cancer Society spoke about their battle with breast cancer or ‘talk the walk’.

“Both ladies changed the way we look at our health and they have made us much more aware of the importance of getting tested for breast, cervical and  prostate cancer.

“Cancer doesn’t discriminate even men can get breast cancer.”

The ‘Walk For Life’ takes place on the last Saturday of every month and it’s a round trip from and to the Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral.
