Carole Kai OnouyeExperience the Aloha!

People ask me why I keep volunteering for the Great Aloha Run with all the time and energy expended when I could be doing something easier!

Two Answers: I love it with all my heart! And, My mother!, Ethel always challenged me to do something meaningful for others as a way of living Aloha. She grew up with Hawaiian families in Kahalu’u Valley; they taught her the meaning of “Aloha”- helping, caring with a lot of warmth! They loved her family of 11 with food, laughter and support!

Sadly, mom was the sole support of three children so her life was one of hard work. She had little or no time for helping people the way she wanted to and it made her sad. So, she instilled in Me the need to Give! “Always be sure to put water Back into the well before it dries Up!”, she would remind me constantly!

That desire to do for others has enriched my Life! I’ve met the most wonderful people with hearts as big as the Sky! The KPGAR is made up of mostly volunteers, 4,000 in total! What great and generous Souls they are!

Experience the AlohaThis year’s theme is, “Experience the Aloha”! We hope that those of us who work the KPGAR can extend warmth and support to all who call us so they can “Experience the Aloha!”.

We’ve grown from that first year with 11,698 beloved first-timers. I pray that the Lord will continue to bless us with more than 22,000 entrants each year so we can continue giving back to the Community.

We also thank the Military in Hawaii for supporting this 8.15 mile event with more than 3,000 runners in formation as the “Sounds of Freedom”! Their presence gives us Pride in America and a “chicken skin” feeling when we watch them run in cadence and hear them chanting encouragement to each other.

Our awesome sponsors make it possible for us to give out $410,000+ each year. Since 1985, over $10.6 million has gone to 150 organizations and the Military. We’ve provided free computer classes for Senior Citizens for the past 12 years, and offer free eight-week “In Training” Workshops to all GAR participants. We’ve happily helped save some valuable local programs from extinction.

Thank you, Kaiser Permanente and the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation for your Sponsorship! We’re very grateful to our Kama’aina Sponsors and Company Sponsors for helping us support our beloved island community! This Race is for the People, by the People! Thank you all!

Mahalo and Aloha,

Carole Kai Onouye
Happy Volunteer and Supporter for 31 Years

And, I could do nothing without the Lord helping me. "If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the Love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions…" 1 John 3:17

A Great Big Heartfelt Mahalo to our Sponsors!
