The Great S-H-A-loha Run
The Sacred Hearts Academy community exerted maximum effort in its support of this year’s Great Aloha Run (GAR) festivities. Lower School students and their friends and families laced up their shoes first, participating in the two-mile Keiki Aloha Run on February 14. Then, on Presidents’ Day, February 16, members of the Academy’s Junior High and High School awoke before dawn to either participate in or volunteer at the GAR. Members of the freshman and sophomore classes served as "medical spotters" at Aloha Stadium under the supervision of Kaiser Permanente employees Thomas Sagapolu, father of tenth grader Taryn Sagapolu, and former parent Dr. Matt Lau. Students also worked along the 8.15-mile route running from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium, and the Leo Club handed out finisher t-shirts at the end. Meanwhile, over 75 Junior High and High School students and 25 staff members navigated the GAR route, and these runners and walkers were able to participate due to gracious sponsorship by Dwight Otani and Trese Otani of D. Otani Produce, who sponsored their race entries.
