Every year on a random Saturday, we get to see individuals running with wheelbarrows around Suva City. These aren’t individuals looking for their next maintenance gig but rather participants for the most awaited and highly anticipated Frank Hilton Amazing Wheelbarrow Race. The Great Bara Battle!!

The Bara Battle has become a much sought after event ever since the first race held back in 2016. Corporate organizations such as Vodafone, TFL, Vinod Patel, Standss South Pacific, Harcourts and many more are avid supporters and participants of the race, not merely as a part of their corporate social responsibility, but also as a team building activity for their staff.

As a charitable Organization, we receive funding from the Government of Fiji and development partners, however, we are left to raise over 20% of our total annual operating expenditure to ensure continuity of services. 

If you want to join the battle and be part of a worthy cause, email
