The seasons are changing on Maui and you know what that means? That means it’s almost time for one of our favorite times of the year- the holidays. If you love the holidays as much as we do and are looking for ways to give back during this season of giving then you will definitely want to check out this amazing Christmas run in honor of the Maui Food Bank.
On Sunday, Dec. 16, the annual Christmas 5K, 1 Mile Walk and Santa’s Half Mile Keiki Dash kicks off at 7:30 a.m. During the day of the event, the organizers will be collecting donations for the Maui Food Bank. What better way to contribute than by focusing on a healthy event that puts food in our neighbor’s mouths? The Maui Food Bank’s mission is to help the hungry in Maui County by collecting and distributing food through community partnerships. According to their website, they distribute more than 2.5 million pounds of safe, nutritious food each year, that includes around 500,000 pounds of fresh produce. The Maui Food Bank has been a local non-profit on Maui since 1994 and is the only nonprofit in Maui County that collects and distributes masses amounts of perishable and nonperishable food to those in need.
As part of this event, there will also be a special keiki run or a Santa’s Half Mile Keiki Dash. This race is a special race for children 8 years and under and will start at 7:30 a.m. According to the website, there will be no bib numbers or run times for the Keiki Dash. There’s also the option of doing a 5K run at 7:35 a.m. that day and a 1-mile walk that will start after the 5K runners head out.
This race will be free for Valley Isle Road Runners and $20 to nonmembers before December 15th. The race will start at the Kaunoa Senior Center at 401 Alakapa Place in Paia.
We hope you consider joining in on this family-friendly and healthy event this December.
