Sports Authority is once again a generous sponsor for our 2nd annual event! We look forward to a continued partnership with them for this year’s event!
The Maui Ocean Center is also again donating 40 free admission tickets to the school with the most participants! Maui Waena Intermediate had the most sign ups last year. Will YOUR school have the most this year??
We have added a “Virtual Run” to our 2013 event! What is a “Virtual Run” you ask?? If you know of someone who lives outside of Maui or the State of Hawaii ask them to support your school by signing up for our “Virtual Run”. They can do their own 5K run/walk in their own neighborhood or on their favorite route on the same day as our event. We will send them a Maui 5K t-shirt and if they post their finish time on our Facebook page we will even send them a finisher’s medal with their t-shirt! Get your friends and families involved to support your school!
