About 150 people turned up to Niue's national hospital this morning to participate in the island's annual Walk For Life event celebrating better health in their communities.
The 5 km walk which kicked off at 5am local time was organised by the island's cultural division, Taoga Niue, and the national Health Department.
The walk is a promotion of the Decade of Healthy Living plan which began in 2014 and is aimed at raising awareness on different health issues in Niue and improving the health of the island's population of 1600.
Local youths Sialofa Feilo-Hasina and her cousin Siale Kuki-Lagatule are hoping more youth will join in future.
They said it was great to see so many families participating.
"Yeah they loved it. It was really good, yeah we were all like happy in the end and we were relieved we were like oh its finished. (laughs) Everyone is cheering us on and we are like yes! It's completed, " said Sialofa Feilo-Hasina and Siale Kuki-Lagatule.
