Happening This Weekend: 38th Annual Nā Holo Wahine Run
The 38th Annual “Nā Holo Wahine” 5K run and 1-mile walk will take place Saturday, May 6, at 8 a.m. at Keopuolani Park in Wailuku.
This year’s event, hosted by Valley Isle Road Runners, will benefit The Maui Farm, a local non-profit organization that empowers families and cultivates lives.
“The Maui Farm is doing wonderful things for displaced families, providing an environment to learn and turn their lives around for the positive,” said Jim Lynch, Vice President of Valley Isle Road Runners. “To be able to help in some small way to support such an remarkable community organization is truly an honor.”
Categories this year include a 5K race, a 1-mile walk and a mother-daughter team option.
The cost ranges from $15 and $35, depending on the category registered, and there is a discount for Valley Isle Road Runners members.
“The Maui Farm cannot be successful in our work without the support of our community, and we greatly appreciate that Valley Isle Road Runners has chosen to partner with us on the Nā Holo Wahine race,” said Executive Director Paula Ambre. “Proceeds from this event will be used to support our Family Strengthening Program, providing transitional housing and life skills training for Maui families who have been displaced due to domestic violence and economic challenges, and offering support towards self-sufficiency.”
Food, refreshments, awards and prize giveaways donated from local Maui businesses will be available after the race.
