STAFF members of Labasa Hospital and the Westpac Banking Corporation in Vanua Levu took part in a morning walk yesterday to promote a healthy lifestyle.

The health walk which started at 6am proceeded through Labasa Town and ended at the Katonivere grounds opposite the Labasa River where the staff had refreshments and enjoyed the organised entertainment.

Divisional medical officer northern Doctor Romakin Pablo said the initiative was a physical activity they usually embarked on at the end of every month. "This is a form of exercise included in our plan of action this year for the purpose of reducing the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in Vanua Levu," he said. Meanwhile, 125 people were registered during the morning walk organised by the bank staff and the health officials in Savusavu.
