MERE First To Register For 2018 Olympic Day Run

SUVA , 21 June, 2018 Mere Bulou is the first person to register for this year's Olympic Day Run event. Her eagerness to participate at the annual Olympic Day Run is astounding considering that she is deaf.

Using sign language, the 35-year-old Nadali, Tailevu lady has been attending the Olympic Day Run for the past four years.

She said she first heard about the Olympic Day Run from a fellow worker involved with Paralympic Sports.

Bulou works at the Pacific Women's Support and Fiji Fund in Flagstaff and is also a member of the Fiji Association of the Deaf.

Despite her disability she said being a part of the ODR allowed her and other people with disabilities to take part in a meaningful activity.

Bulou said it was also an opportunity to show others that people with disabilities can take part in national events.

Using sign language, Mere said by participating they can also get together with other people with disabilities, play sports and enjoy fun activities organised by FASANOC.

The 2018 Olympic Day Run will be held on Friday 29th of June, begining from Albert Park along the Sea Wall to My Suva Park and back again.

FASANOC is organising the Olympic Day Run, a global International Olympic Committee programme, in support of the National Sports & Wellness Day Public Holiday. FASANOC's Voices of the Athletes Programme will be present showcasing various activities and modified sports for participants.

The public are invited and encouraged to participate.
