ABOUT 20 staff members of Westpac took part in the Westpac Christmas Morning walk in Suva on Saturday.

The President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau also joined the early morning walk.

Westpac Fiji's general manager Adrian Hughes said they took the opportunity to jointly organise the walk with the Ministry of Health in the midst of the festive season.

"The morning walk was to basically drive home the message of keeping healthy as it was usually a time when people indulge in food and drinks," Mr Hughes said.

"Keeping well and healthy is the surest way to preventing non communicable disease."

Westpac joined forces with the Health Ministry's National Wellness Unit to create awareness on the effects of NCDs and advocate for prevention through healthy lifestyles. The program consisted of open air zumba to warm up and a quick 30 to 45 minute walk.
