Fiji's Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) campaign has raised a total of $345,000 to assist children who are suffering from cancer.

Chairman of the WOWS Matt Wilson while making the official announcement on the amount raised in Suva yesterday said it was amomentous and memorable period of fundraising to help children with cancer.

“The Wows committee made a call to the nation. It touched the hearts of people everywhere. They replied with generosity, the kindness and compassion," he said.

Wilson said after deducting the operational and the administration expenses, they currently have a net income of $295,699.

This sees a 25% rise in comparison to last year's result and the biggest contribution of $223,000 came from a well known radio organization.

Wilson said donations are still pouring in and they are thankful to each and every one for their continuous support in landing their hands.

“It is in deed we are grateful for everyones support. Since 2009, the Wows Walk has been    great for Fiji along with Fiji Cancer Society recognizing valuable contribution.”

"Villagers, pensioners, school children, bus drivers and market vendors, the ordinary and the famous, corporate and international organisations, those who have felt cancer’s cruel and sometime fatal, they all became part of a great campaign," Wilson concluded.

WOWS is the authorised representative of Tonga's Tae Kami foundation that was formed to fulfil the dying wishes of Tae Kami, who succumbed to cancer in 2008 at the age of 15.
