"It is a big boost to our fundraising and assist our team to the games.

"Our athletics team consists of 95 per cent students and for us to raise funds with them was difficult."

Gold Rock Investment Fiji head of exports and marketing Maurice Erasito said the company was happy to be associated with Athletics Fiji.

"For us (Gold Rock) we have a lot of markets around the Pacific, particularly in Vanuatu and this will provide us with the perfect opportunity to take our brand across alongside the well-known brand of Athletics Fiji and it is truely is an honour for us," Erasito said.

The athletics competition will be held in the second week of the Pacific Mini Games next month.

Meanwhile, the PMG will be held from December 4-15 in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
