Honolulu 5K, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, was formed in an effort to continue to help provide Hawaii’s schools physical fitness, play and athletic programs with additional funds in hopes of keeping our children healthy and active. The proceeds collected from this event will be distributed to Hawaii’s schools based upon each school’s participation.
The inaugural Honolulu 5K event was held on May 1, 2011 in Downtown Honolulu and consisted of approximately 1,800 participants that represented 135 schools, a few of which included the outer islands. The top 5 participating schools for 2011 were –
Kaimuki Middle School $2,190.00
Maemae Elementary School $2,015.00
Maryknoll Grade School $1,600.00
Hongwanji Mission School $1,303.00
Wilson Elementary School $1,030.00
Please join us to help promote a healthy and fun atmosphere which will be enjoyed by parents and students, athletes and non-athletes alike.
Schools on Maui, Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, and Molokai can also benefit from this event without physically participating. A simple donation will put your school’s name on the list of participating schools statewide. 100% of all donations will be returned to the designated school.
