People from all walks of life turned up at this year’s Yellow Ribbon Fun Run
The 2014 Yellow Ribbon Fun Run that was conducted this morning at Albert Park was hailed a success by Yellow Ribbon Coordinator, Assistant Superintendent, Isireli Dausiga.
Attended by more than 450 participants from as far as Naboro as well as Nausori, the event was aimed at creating awareness on the Yellow Ribbon initiative on giving a second chance.
“We are indeed grateful for the turnout at today’s event as well as at the other five centres around the country that also carried out their Fun Run programme,” explained Mr. Dausiga.
“This event marks the seventh year since the Yellow Ribbon Program was initiated back in 2008. The program is designed to inform the public of the roles and responsibilities that they need to play in the successful re-integration of our sons and daughters who currently incarcerated in our penal institutions,” added Mr. Dausiga.
Participants also turned up in numbers at the other five centres namely in Ba, Lautoka, Labasa, Levuka and Taveuni to take part in the Yellow Ribbon Fun Run.
The Yellow Ribbon Fun Run will become an annual event in the Fiji Corrections Service calendar and is expected to become bigger and better in the years to come.
The Fiji Corrections Service also thanks the participants and sponsors that made the event a successful one.
