JUST like the previous years, the FASANOC Women in Sports Commission organised a Walk and Fun Day to mark Mother's Day which will be celebrated today.

The event held yesterday morning at the Victoria Lawn Tennis Courts in Suva attracted a good number of participants.

The Walk and Fun Day started with the registration followed by warm-up exercise conducted by the Ministry of Health staff.

The participants then took a walk around Knollys Street.

FASANOC Women in Sports Commission chairperson Susie Yee was impressed with the turnout and the variety of sport being represented in the event.

She said members from mini athletics, volleyball, AFL Fiji, Fiji Hockey, squash, tennis, golf and chess took part.

"We also had three speakers, a representative from the National Food and Nutrition Dieticians, Sharlene Nand from the Medical Commission and Shamima Ali of the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre."

Yee said the commission would hold workshops in Labasa on July 11 and 12 July, in Suva on August 30 and in Nadi on September 20.
