We would like to share an email we received from the PCNC of Wailuku Elementary School.

“Aloha everyone!
First of all, mahalo for this wonderful opportunity you’ve given our Maui Schools. We can’t thank you enough for helping us. Your generous donation is being used to help cover the costs of our Creative Movement program here at Wailuku Elementary School. Since the DOE does not provide the schools with enough money to cover extra curricular programs, especially the arts and physical education, your monies will help us to keep our students active outside the classroom. Our students attend a Creative Movement class about twice a month, and learn to move and dance to the beat. Thank you once again for this amazing opportunity! Can’t wait to do it again next year!”

This encourages us to keep doing what we do and we hope it will encourage you, too, to help us to continue to make the Maui 5K such a success!  The 4th Annual Maui 5K was held on Sunday, March 29th and it drew another record participation of 723 people from near and far – as far away as Japan!  Please come out to join us in 2016!  For more updates to the event, please visit and “Like” our Facebook page!
