Leadership Fiji Alumni and National Fire Authority Procurement Officer, Ropate Pareti will be climbing Mount Korobaba this Saturday to raise money for the Fiji Cancer Society and raise awareness on Pinktober and Movember.

Pareti says not a lot of people understand the work the Fiji Cancer Society does in terms of how they assist cancer patients and their families.

He says losing people in this journey is always a bad experience, especially when we know that we could have assisted sooner when our instincts demanded rather than leaving it too late.

The Cancer Society champion says he has hiked Mount Korobaba twice before and chose to climb it again to raise funds for a worthy cause.

He says he was approached by the Fiji Cancer Society and decided to take up on their request as it is a way of developing and strengthening his leadership skills and with a greater cause it makes his work relevant, interesting and engaging.

Pareti adds the fulfilling feeling of giving back and contributing to society is unparalleled and giving back is also a great way to get to know the community and its citizens.

If you want to help Pareti raise funds for the Fiji Cancer Society, you can transfer money through M-PAiSA to 808 3867 or 943 8272. You can check out the details on our Hands Across Fiji section of our website, fijivillage.

Meanwhile, Ram Sami and Sons is expected to hand over money to Pareti this Thursday to assist him in his campaign.
