The WOWS Kids team are braving the searing heat and humidity to walk around Fiji's main island of Viti Levu – a distance of 462km – to raise awareness for the Walk On Walk Strong campaign and raise funds to establish Resource Centres in Suva and Lautoka for kids with cancer and other life-threatening conditions.

Leading the walk is the world famous Laughing Samoan, Eteuati Ete, who is giving up two weeks of his time and a lot of sweat and tears to be in Fiji to complete this historic walk.

The WOWS Kids Walk 2014 is split into 13 daily sections, with an average distance of 35km a day, starting Monday 6 October and culminating on Saturday 18 October with a Head Shave and Free Concert at Sukuna Park in Suva. This means 12 overnight stops in villages along the way.

All contributions to this very noble cause would be greatly appreciated.

Please also follow this epic journey via the WOWS Kids Fiji Facebook page. Vinaka vakalevu.


Background

In 2005 at age 12, Tae Kami was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the jaw, which meant extensive and costly specialised treatment in New Zealand.

After several very complex operations over a period of three years, Tae passed away in August 2008.

Before she left us, she wrote the beautiful and powerful song "Walk On Walk Strong" as an encouragement to other patients and families struggling with cancer.

The Tae Kami Foundation was set up in Tonga in 2009 by Tae’s parents, Taholo and Sina, with the hope of helping other Pacific families dealing with similar heartache.

The same work is being carried out by WOWS Kids in Fiji.
