THE Jet Runners Club of Nadi has applauded high school students from in and around the Votualevu area in Nadi who have opted for healthy living.
Club president Abinesh Kumar said some youths between the ages of 14-20 who had been smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages had now quit as they took up the challenge to be healthier and more focused young people.
"These boys now join our club coaching directors Parshotam Lal, Bimlesh Kumar and myself and run around the hills in Votualevu so they can regain their fitness," Kumar said.
On the aims of the running club, he said: "The club was formed to cater for long distance runners in the Western Division and it's good to know it has helped some youths adopt a healthy lifestyle."
Kumar hopes publicising their efforts and that of the youths will see others follow suit and give up smoking and drinking for a healthier lifestyle.
