WHO WE ARE

THE ULTIMATE HAWAIIAN TRAIL RUN IS ANNUAL FUNDRAISER TO BENEFIT THE KE ALA FOUNDATION. THE KE ALA FOUNDATION IS A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO CREATING COMMUNITIES THAT SUPPORT THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII.

RACE WITH PURPOSE 

WHEN IT COMES TO HAWAII, THERE'S MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. SUBSTANCE ABUSE IS MAJOR PROBLEM ON THE ISLANDS, PARTICULARLY AMONGST THE YOUTH. HAWAII HOSTS THE HIGHEST RATE OF METHAMPHETAMINE USE IN THE UNITED STATES, WITH ONE OF THE LOWEST LEVELS OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO COMMUNITIES.

OUR SOLUTION

WE BELIEVE THAT THE SOLUTION TO SUBSTANCE ABUSE BEGINS WITH HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. THROUGH COMMUNITY WE CAN EQUIP PEOPLE WITH THE TOOLS TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND OVERCOME ANY CHALLENGE.

THE ULTIMATE HAWAIIAN TRAIL RUN ALLOWS US TO CREATE A MULTITUDE OF ENGAGING AND EMPOWERING PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO YOUTH AND THEIR FAMILIES. IT SPONSORS FREE YOUTH FITNESS PROGRAMS, COMMUNITY OUTREACH, AND AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
