U.S.VETS-Barbers Point held their 8th Annual 5K Patriot Run/Walk on November 17, 2012. There were approximately 300 attendees who gathered together at the scenic grounds of The Waterfront at Pu’uloa for this worthy cause. Without the help of our sponsors, volunteers, staff and numerous others, this event would not have been possible.
The Patriot Run/Walk brings funding and awareness to U.S.VETS. This year, it was also an opportunity to kick start the Gift of Aloha program, a Christmas initiative that allows the general public to sponsor a veteran and purchase things from their Christmas wish list. 30 veterans were sponsored that day. We would like to extend our warmest “mahalo” to all of our generous sponsors and to The Waterfront at Pu’uloa, Pacific Sports, James Campbell High School ROTC, and Po’ohala for their support of U.S.VETS-Barbers Point. Through the passion and dedication of businesses and people who were involved, we are able to continue our mission and enjoy the camaraderie of serving those who served!
