Running with the Big Dog

Scholarship 5K run/walk on Sunday, May 13, 7:30 am, Coconut Island

The Big Island Road Runners in partnership with Wayne Joseph and Big Dog Productions will be holding its 2012 Scholarship 5K run on Sunday, May 13, 2012.  The run starts and ends at the Moku Ola or Coconut Island Parking Lot.  The run starts at 7:30 am with on-site registration starting at 7:00am 

The run is free and open to the public, however donations to the scholarship fund are greatly appreciated.  This event is a run/walk and all are welcome. 

Each year the Big Island Road Runners awards two promising high school seniors a $1,000.00 scholarship.  This year’s recipients are Keaau’s Deann Nishimura-Thornton and Honokaa’s Robert Connors, full $1000 each and a half scholarship to Waiakea’s Kelsie Kobayashi.

The scholarship fund was created through the generous donation from Richard and Virginia Alderson and is sustained through donations from participants and members of the Big Island Road Runners.  There will be post run refreshments.   Any questions can be directed to Steve Pavao at 430-0267

Come out and support our young runners and in the process do a 3.1 mile run/walk and keep yourself healthy.

Congratulations to the Road Runners for once again supporting the youth in our community.
