2020 aloha run for black lives

The virtual Aloha Run was a huge success with participation all over the country! Thank you to everyone who ran, donated, or helped to spread the word about this fundraiser even in these unprecedented times!

Proceeds from the run were donated to Black Girls Code, the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center, and will help provide scholarships for low-income, first generation college students.
