Niketown run to 'get kids moving,' benefit Isle P.E.
|||The sakada story|
Kinetic keiki! Niketown holds its seventh annual 5K Run at 7 a.m. tomorrow (a shorter, one-mile race starts at 8 a.m.), going from the store to the Waikiki Aquarium and back.
The event is a fundraiser for O'ahu physical education, play and athletic programs — last year $90,000 was raised. This year Nike is aiming for $120,000. The 5K is also geared to "get kids moving," says Niketown regional marketing manager Keala Peters. Post-race runners get Jamba Juice smoothies and can listen to the Tru Rebels and Dottie's Pride. And if 5K is just a warmup for you, there will be activity stations equipped with jump ropes, hula hoops, balance beams and a soccer dribbling course.
Cost: $20 (entry fee and T-shirt). To register: 943-NIKE (6453), www.niketown5k.com.
