LAUANS in Labasa celebrated their special day with a difference this year, focusing on healthy living instead of the traditional feasting that often marked the occasion.
Spokesman Aminio Ledua said they decided to mark their celebrations this year with a sports day.
Some activities such as coconut scraping, weaving and other traditional competitions and the annual soli were continued in this year's event.
"Life is precious and this is a great way to ensure that we are a healthy people."
Money collected would be used for the welfare of Lauans in Labasa.
