The Sunrise Track and Field Club (under the umbrella of SUNRISE ATHLETICS) will be having a car wash fundraiser on June 12 from 9:30am-2:30pm at Just Cruising Coffee.  The Summer Club consist of about 12 elementary-age athletes from DeSilva, Waiakeawaena, Waiakea Elem., Haili Christian, etc. and 40 middle and high school-aged athletes from Kea’au Middle, Waiakea Inter. and Waiakea High.  Coaches Lance and MJ Tominaga are holding the car wash to defray cost for travel for youngsters from ages 7 – high school to attend the Junior Olympics Track Meet on Oahu this July 2nd. 

 The Tominaga’s established the track club in hopes of instilling the interest and love for running (and athletics in general, as they have a youth basketball team, too) in children at a young age.  “We try to make the practices fun (especially for the elementary-aged athletes), and yet filled with learning experiences of skills needed for the sport” MJ Tominaga said.
