The Fiji Table Tennis is calling on the public to support the team as they start preparations for the 2017 Pacific Mini-Games that will be held in Vanuatu in December.
Fiji Table Tennis President Anthony Ho said they would be doing a fundraising wheela-pusha-walka-thon this Saturday 15th July from 9am to 12 pm starting from and finishing at the FNCDP Complex in Brown St.
"This to assist our 8 player para table tennis team, which includes 6 wheelchair and 2 standing disability plus officials to attend a training camp and NSW Table Tennis Open in Sydney from the 22nd to 31st of July and thereafter to contribute towards the $1500 per person levy for our para table tennis team to the 2017 Pacific Mini Games," he said.
"Our wheelchair players female and male are currently ranked No 1 and 2 in Oceania , gold medalist at the 2015 Pacific Games, with our female player Mere Roden , the first ever Pacific Para Table Tennis player to attend the paralympics and the current 2016 Sportwoman of the Year."
Mr Ho said they are also taking other young para athletes, some of who are still attending special schools, who are members of our national team for two years.
He said based on the results in 2017 he was confident that our other players would be bringing home potentially more medals at the upcoming Pacific Mini Games.
"We hope you and your family, friends or work colleagues would take a form each and get some sponsors to walk or push a wheelchair person as part of the fundraiser and also as a great way to keep healthy," said Mr Ho.
Fiji Water will be provided at the stations and Powerade will be provided for each person that will finish the walk. There will be other fun activities and some food sales at the FNCDP Complex on the day.
