Triathlon festival backs Cure Kids Fiji
The Fiji International Triathlon has attracted more than 400 international visitors to the country as they have the interest of staying fit and healthy. This year, Cure Kids Fiji has been confirmed as one of the 4th Fiji International Official Charity partners. The annual event has chosen to support Cure Kids Fiji as a charity of choice for the work they have done for the past 10 years and also those that are coming up.
Cure Kids Fiji director operations Sally Cooper said, “Each year the participation numbers grow and we believe that this annual event will be getting bigger and better each year.” She added by partnering with Fiji International Triathlon helps raise awareness of the works Cure Kids Fiji do, both on the local and international platforms.
“It is a privilege and honour to be able to support Cure Kids Fiji moving forward with an event dedicated to raising funds for the incredibly important organisation that assist the children of Fiji,” said Mark Stewart, managing director of 100% Events.
“Cure Kids Fiji is a charity organisation that is focusing on the ongoing health care of children. Not just immediate solutions but preventative measures and sustainable care solutions for our Pacific environment. For our long term vision that is why we have selected Cure Kids Fiji as our charity of choice for 2016”. Cure Kids Fiji was established in New Zealand in 1975 and brought to Fiji by founding partner Accor Hotels in 2006. “We have chosen to support CK Fiji as they have an ongoing sustainable approach to health care for Fiji,” added Stewart. 100% Events are pleased to add two Ocean Swim events to the programme this year to assist in the raising of funds and promoting the great work that Cure Kids Fiji does every day. Those encouraged should sign-up for the Cure Kids Fiji 750m or 1.5K Ocean Swims to be staged at 3pm on Friday, May 27. Meanwhile, swimmers will also have the opportunity to participate in an open water swim clinic conducted by Andrew Reid better known as “Reidy” from the smash hit television show Bondi Rescue.
