Benefit for epilepsy

Sharon's Ride/Walk for Epilepsy is Sunday, starting and finishing at Kapi'olani Community College on Diamond Head Drive.

The event features 5-mile (to Wa'ialae Beach) and 25-mile (to Sandy Beach) bike rides and a 1-mile walk around the KCC campus.

A post-ride/walk party, including a Keiki Fun Day, is from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., which includes games, crafts, food and entertainment.

The long bike ride begins at 7 a.m., followed by the short bike ride at 7:30 and the walk at 7:45 a.m. A helmet is required for the bike rides.

For registration details, including fees, call 528-3058 or register at www.sharonforepilepsy.org. On-site registration will be available starting at 6 a.m. Sunday.

The event, held in various locations across the United States, is named after Sharon Rosenfeld, a nurse and teacher, who was an advocate for epilepsy awareness, and for helmet safety, according to event organizers.

She was killed in a cross-country bicycle ride in 1993.

Sailing clinic for women

Kaya Haig, a Punahou alumna who was the first woman from Hawai'i to be a three-time collegiate All-American sailor at Boston University, will conduct a sailing clinic tomorrow in Kona.

The clinic is sponsored by the University of Hawai'i at Hilo and Kona Sailing Club.

Organizers say the clinic is to introduce competitive sailing skills and techniques to women.

Potential participants should have sailing experience. Contact Alicia Starsong of the Kona Sailing Club at (808) 883-9230 for details.
