Civoniceva starts new foundation

July 23, 2015 4:54 am

Rugby league legend, Petero Civoniceva has set up a foundation under his name to help promote sport in Fiji.

The former Fiji Bati skipper say’s the foundation will help fight non-communicable diseases (NCD’s) in the country.

“We want to utilize the power of sports to empower and enrich the lives of young people. We have got a really strong focus on diabetes education as NCD’s is a huge issue here in Fiji so we want to get to our young people, talk to them about their diets so that they’re living a healthy lifestyle.”

Civoniceva’s campaign received a major boost after Asco Motors donated $15,000 to help organize a Fun Run in November.
