Run, Walk Or Dash To Help WW Clubhouse

The Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii’s Windward Clubhouse is hosting its annual Holokiki O ‘Alele races Sept. 9, offering the 31st Windward half marathon, a 5K run with new ‘Baby Jogger’ category and the keiki 100-yard dash for the age 3 to 5 set.

The races begin and end at Kailua Intermediate School, 145 S. Kainalu Drive.

“This long-standing event has something for the whole family and brings together many members of our community in support of our keiki,” said clubhouse director Maureen Purington.

The half marathon starts at 6 a.m., the 5K at 6:20 a.m. and Keiki Dash at 8:30 a.m. All proceeds go toward programs at the clubhouse, which has been offering a variety of sports, arts and leadership opportunities and a safe hangout since 2006. It now serves more than 500 area children.

Registration fee is $45 for the half marathon, $30 for the 5K and $15 for the Keiki Dash. To register online, go to or call 263-0555.

Sponsors include Castle Medical Center, Boots & Kimo’s Homestyle Kitchen, Cinnamon’s Restaurant and Monsanto.
