A Volunteer Fundraising Group was launched today to assist the Fiji Rugby Union in raising funds for its Road to Rio campaign.
Driven by ardent Fiji Rugby supporters, the committee consists of volunteers who are executives in their respective fields aimed at using their expertise to maximize raising funds for the national players.
Co-Chaired by Fiji Sports Council Chief Executive, Litiana Loabuka and Coca Cola Amatil National Sales Manager Lawrence Tikaram the group includes many more individuals who have stepped forward to be part of the committee.
The logo of the project was today officially opened by the President of FRU, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
One of the first projects for the committee is to place a huge rugby ball to act as a money bank at the departure lounge of the Nadi international Airport.
They aim to raise $800,000 for the national teams.
The Olympics will be held in Brazil from the 5th of August next year.
