Season Greetings from Big Dog and the Mrs., along with Jackie from Taiwan.

Wishing all of you the happiest of holiday season and should you all stay injury free for 2012.

If you’re wondering why the rabbit ears in Taiwan it is because they don’t usually celebrate Christmas but it is CUTE!

Vet Day 5K Reaps Benefit for the Hawaii Island Food Basket

Staff & Family of the Hawaii Island Food Basket

Big Dog’s Veterans Day 5K produces Big results for the Hawaii Island Food Basket

The Big Dog’s Veterans Day 5K, held at Coconut Island on Nov. 11 attracted 198 participants and 30 volunteers in what was one of the most successful running/walking events on the island in 2010.

The event raised 356 pounds of food and $293 in cash and checks for the Hawaii Island Food Basket.

Some of the Food Basket Helpers

Many thanks goes to the Hawaii Island Labor Alliance, who supported the event, which saw the Hawaii State Teachers Association win the “most participant award”.

To Jerry Chang and his large group of volunteer staff who supplied all the refreshments, bananas, papayas, cookies and the like.

To Keith Aoki from Anheuser-Busch who made the banners and supplied the sports drinks for the event.

To Mrs. Big Dog for her tireless energy in helping in the days leading up to the event.

And to the Veterans who came and participated.

Mahalo to all as the Big Dog looks forward to making 11-11-11 even bigger and better, with all of your help.
