The ANZ Cure Kids Fiji Cycle 500 got underway yesterday. The cyclists made their way to Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki as to fundraise for Cure Kids Fiji- an NGO that focuses on preventing and improving outcomes for children living with rheumatic heart disease. This is a potentially life-threatening condition affecting one in 30 school-aged children in Fiji.

The cyclists are making their way around Viti Levu over the four-day cycling trip, with logistics support to be provided by staff from Higgins Fiji.

“We look forward to welcoming the group at our branches across the island during their cycle, and very proud that some of our own colleagues from ANZ in New Zealand are a part of the cycling team,” ANZ Fiji Country head, Saud Minam said.

A total of 15 riders are making their way around Viti Levu over the four-day cycling trip, with logistics.

“I thank the cyclists for choosing Fiji as a destination for their tour. Fiji is a great place to visit and an increasingly popular sports tourism destination, as demonstrated by the recent high-profile rugby games held at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.”
