Getting into the spirit of By Andrew King JESEL ROYOKADA embodies everything that is the Star Media City2Surf. Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative a​ imed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said.
