Inaugural 2019 Keiki Rainbow Run to raise funds for Oahu schools on Saturday, March 16

Thousands of keiki and their families are expected to participate in the first-ever 2019 Keiki Rainbow Run, a 1.2-mile fun-run at the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Clarence T.C. Ching Field on Saturday, March 16. The 2019 Keiki Rainbow Run will raise funds to benefit health and wellness programs in local schools. This family-friendly run encourages youth to live an active lifestyle, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and choose water over sugary beverages.

“With the support of more than 30 community partners, we are able to host a brand-new run for Oahu’s keiki and their families, which will focus on making healthy lifestyle choices,” said Colby Takeda, president of Kahoomiki, one of the main organizers for the 2019 Keiki Rainbow Run. “We’re thrilled to welcome participants to our inaugural event and look forward to seeing how funds raised during the run are used to enhance physical education and nutrition programs in schools islandwide.”

The program will commence at 7:15 a.m. with energizers and announcements, and the run will officially start at 8 a.m. Keiki finishers will receive an event t-shirt, healthy snacks and access to the Healthy Keiki Fest, which will host interactive booths on the field after the run.

Keiki registration fees are $25 and are due by Friday, March 8. Children ages 4 and under and adults can also register for $10 each. Parking on campus is available near the Stan Sherriff Center (Zone 20 Parking Structure) for $5. For more information or to register, visit www.kahoomiki.org.

This event is proudly supported by Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, Island Insurance Foundation, ‘Ohana Health Plan, Kama‘aina Kids, Hawaiian Electric Company, and HMSA, and is being organized by multiple community partners, including Kaho‘omiki, Hawaii Afterschool Alliance, Hawaii Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, and Blue Zones Project.
