The Ram Sami Nasinu Rugby Football Union in partnership with the Ministry of Health will be hosting its first wellness programme for the year at the Valelevu Multipurpose Court, Nasinu on Saturday.

Union president Paula Biu said the programme was the continuation of a fitting theme of ‘Fighting NCDs through Rugby.’

“The support from the general public, our partners including the media, and major sponsor have been overwhelming throughout 2018 and so it is for this reason the Union has decided to continue with these events,” Biu said.

“Last year, we managed to successfully organise four wellness programmes in partnership with Ministry of Health, our major sponsor Ram Sami and also our other corporate partners.

“We are going to kick-start our year with another programme for the community, and so we are again inviting everyone in the Nasinu community to come out in numbers and support our campaign.”

The programme begins with registration at 5.30am, and would include diabetes and general health screening, a 3.8km walk, zumba, and general awareness on diabetes and NCDs.
