2018 Keiki Great Aloha Run

Posted by Kahoomiki

2018 Keiki Great Aloha Run


The 2018 Keiki Great Aloha Run started with a bang and there were 2,200 kids, parents and supporters who crossed the Finish Line.  The event raised $34,000 for fitness and nutrition programs at 130 Oahu schools.

We are thankful for the generous support of our sponsors and community partners, and hundreds of volunteers. Like an umeke (calabash bowl), there were so many contributions put in towards the success of the event.

We would like to say “MAHALO” to the following:

  • Hawaii Pacific Health – For being the Title Sponsor and providing the First Aid stations.
  • Carole Kai Charities – For the partnership and umbrella support of the Great Aloha Run.  Special thanks to Claire and Brent.
  • Meadow Gold Dairies For donating milk, juice and yummy yoghurts.  It was fun moo-ing around with Lani Moo and Calci.
  • Kokua Hawaii Foundation – For setting up the main water station and donating reusable tote bags and bamboo sporks.  These donations were in connection with its Plastic Free Hawaii initiative to reduce single-use plastics in our islands.
  • Whole Foods Market – For the bananas that were perfect companions in the breakfast bags.
  • Clif Kid For the energy bars that were tasty post-run treats
  • LaTour Bakehouse – For the slices of freshly baked, nutritious multi-grain bread.

  • McKinley High School Athletics and Cheerleading – For helping to set-up, serving as course marshals, and cheering on the runner.   Due to your community service, you were shining role models for our young, budding athletes.
  • YMCA of Honolulu – For providing support in SO many ways.  Thank you to Penny’s Tai Chi classes for collating and preparing the packets.
  • Kama’aina Kids For hosting this event on the “Keiki Corner” on KHON’s Living 808.
  • City and County of Honolulu, Honolulu Police Department and Department of Transportation Services For your support in ensuring the safety of our participants.
  • Keiki Run Planning Committee Members – Your attention to all the pre-event planning details which lead to a safe, smooth and successful event.
  • Kaho`omiki –For the Board’s commitment to the Keiki Run.  Colby for stepping into the new role of coordinating the Start & Finish. Anna for coordinating the press releases.  Donna for wearing multiple hats.
  • Hawaii Child Nutrition Programs – Jennifer for your ongoing support and guidance.
  • E Ola Koa, KSBE Dance Fitness Team – Your Zumba with KSBE students onstage was contagious and got the crowd moving and energized.
  • Running Room – For again hosting the packet pick-up with wonderful patience of the organized chaos that we brought that day.
  • Augie T. – Thank you for emceeing in the Augie T. special kine way and being a part of the Keiki Run ohana.
