DAYS after braving the hot sun, more than 18 people who took part in the inaugural White Cane-A-Thon walk from Suva to Lautoka have completed their journey.

The event, spearheaded by the United Blind Persons of Fiji, attracted a number of sponsors to help the group raise funds to assist the organisation.

Organisation youth president Josaia Suqesuqevanua said they did not have a specific target but had different sponsors each day — namely TFL, HFC, Jack’s of Fiji, Punjas and Legend FM and Viti FM.

The 21-year-old said they also had the services of more than 10 university students who volunteered to be a part of the event.
