MORE than 300 people turned up at the Olympic Day fun run in Suva earlier this morning.

“Each year since 1948, the International Olympic Committee has called upon the Olympic Movement to help promote the importance of movement and leading an active life,” a press release from FASANOC stated.

“From nine nations in 1948 to over 150 in 2017, Olympic Day festivities have been enjoyed by six million people, playing and participating in sporting and cultural activities, such as fun runs, exhibitions, music and educational seminars.

“FASANOC had invited members of the public to move with a walk, learn about the Olympic values and discover new sports on Olympic Day.”

FASANOC thanked First Responders for their first aid service on the day and Fulton Hogan for its assistance with road management planning and equipment.
