Keaau’s Fitness Class

Jon Taketa’s Keaau High School Fitness class concludes the school year by running a 5K along Hilo Bayfront.

Taketa, the physical education teacher for the Cougars, believes in the value of running as a great aerobic exercise.
 Students from Kea’au High School in Mr. Taketa’s Body Conditioning class participated in their annual 5K fitness run which was held on Wednesday down at Coconut Island/Liliuokalani Park. 
“In class, students are taught the fundamentals of physical fitness and the benefits of living healthy active lifestyles with the intention that it’ll carry over into the rest of their lives.  The weather held up and everyone succeeded in meeting their personal goals,” Taketa said.

Ka’u Family Fun Fest set for June 11

Record Attendance Expected for First Annual Ka’u Half Marathon (PR announcement)

Na’alehu, HI – O Ka’u Kakou proudly announces the first annual Ka’u Family Fun Fest on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at Na’alehu Park on Hawai’I Island.  Online registration and event details are now available at race360.com/15811.

Known as “The Southernmost Goodwill Games in the USA”, this unprecedented event features a Half Marathon, 10K and 5K races, and a variety of athletic tournaments for all ages.  Bay Clinic, a network of nonprofit community clinics, has been named the beneficiary of this summer fundraiser with proceeds going toward the construction of a new Ka’u Family Health Center.   

This event promises to be a memorable experience for runners of all ages and abilities.  The race course traverses an old historic “Cane Field Road” in Ka’u, once used for hauling sugar cane to Na’alehu and Pahala sugar plantations. Offering one of the most scenic views of the Big Island’s southern coast, the route encompasses over 30 miles of breathtaking coastal landscapes from mauka to makai (mountain to sea).

Following the race, athletes will demonstrate their skills and compete for prizes in archery, basketball, Jan Ken Po, a hunter’s obstacle course and Portuguese horse shoe tournaments.  Live music and entertainment, a live auction with Mayor Billy Kenoi, food and vendor booths, a health expo and a number of children’s activities will be also featured. 

 Early registration ends May 11, 2011.  Event information and updates can be found at okaukakou.com, bayclinic.org, on Facebook (Kau Family Fun Fest) and Twitter (@KauFamFunFest).

The Ka’u Family Fun Fest will be marketed heavily both locally and internationally, offering significant media exposure for participating sponsors and community leaders.  Contact race director Raylene Moses at (808) 235-8251 or kaufamilyfunfest@gmail.com for information on volunteer, sponsorship and vendor opportunities.
