Honokaa runs are Oct. 19
Sign up now for the Brantley Center second annual Honokaa 5K, Half Marathon and 30K Waipio Challenge on Saturday, Oct. 19, starting from the Honokaa Sports complex at 6:30 a.m.
This is a spectacularly scenic run along the route to Waipio Valley with amazing views of Haleakala and Waipio and Waimanu valleys. It’s for a good cause, too: Brantley Center has been providing services for the developmentally and intellectually disabled of North Hilo, Hamakua and South Kohala for more than 45 years from its base in Honokaa.
Please register by Friday, Oct. 18. The 5K run is $30; the Half Marathon is $75 and the 30K is $85. Make your checks payable to Brantley Center, Inc. Log onto Brantley website, thebrantleycenter.org, to download registration forms and mail to P.O. Box 1407, Honokaa, HI 96727. For more information, call 775-7245 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brantley Center Inc. has been the only provider of services to disabled adults and teens for those living in North Hilo, Hamakua and Kohala. Their services foster independent living and job skills development. Severe cuts to their funding five years ago caused a decreased service to clients in certain areas.
“Fortunately, the Brantley Center was awarded Grant-In-Aid funding and upon the release of these funds will be able to restore service as well as begin renovations to meet current ADA requirements for their Honokaa facility that was built in the early ’70s,” said a spokesman.
