Petero Civoniceva and his Founda­tion, in partnership with Asco Motors, have launched their fourth an­nual Dash for Diabetes charity 5kilometre event.

This annual event will be held on December 15 at Buckhurst Park, Suva, from 7:30am to 11:30am.

This year it will be a Santa Dash with a ‘fancy dress’ theme.

Participants are urged to come in their biggest and boldest fancy dress costumes as a way of cel­ebrating the festive season. There will also be a main prize for the best fancy dress costume.

The event is open to all ages and is a great family fun day with free face paint­ing and bouncy castle for the children and free fruit, coconuts and entertain­ment for all.

Mr Civoniceva said: “This is an awareness event for all ages to raise the issues of Diabetes within Fiji and through my Foundation we have created a pro-active event based around be­ing physically active and healthy eating with our free fruit and coconuts to en­courage people to look after their bodies so that in turn our bodies will look after us.”

In the past three years the Dash for Diabetes event has donated more than 10,000 insulin needles to Diabetes Fiji. This year Mr Civonice­va is keen to raise even more funds.

“We are calling out to all corporate organisations to kindly support this event and bring your workforce out of the office and to unite by entering a team at this year’s event.,” He said.

“There will be prizes and a trophy for the organisa­tion with the most partici­pants.”
