Happy New Year Athletic Dept Ohana!

On Sunday, February 6 Big Dog Productions will be hosting a “free” 5k (3.1mi) walk/run beginning at Coconut Island, 7:30am. Entry fee is one canned good to be donated to the Hawaii Island Food Bank.

Our fearless leader, Bob Wagner would like to encourage all of us- and our families- to participate. What a great opportunity for us & our families to mingle, set an example for our students & start our day off with a little exercise & fresh Hilo air!

So here’s what you need to do:

1)      Confirm your and any family members’ participation with Zeny.

2)      We would like to show our unity at this community event. If your family members will be participating, please email Zeny their t-shirt size. Athletic Dept t-shirts (grey) for those people will be distributed at the event.

3)      Bring your food donations to the Athletics Office the week of Jan 31 or to the event.

4)      Meet at Coconut Island no later than 7:15am. All participants must sign a BIRRC waiver to participate.

The walk/run will begin promptly at 7:30am. It is a lovely, flat course that runs along Bayfront. Walkers, joggers, runner of all levels are welcome. Leisurely/brisk walkers generally finish in about an hour.

Feb 6 is Super Bowl Sunday…consider this our department “pre-game.” If you are unable to join us, you are still welcome to donate any canned goods. Your participation in this event is completely voluntary. Please pass on this invitation to our extended dept ohana.
