About This Activity

The 3nd Annual WITH GRACE 5K run/walk will be taking place at Kailua Beach Park (526 Kawailoa Road, Kailua, Oahu 96734). This annual event is to raise money for Project ALS, Inc., an organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease.  It is specifically in honor of Jeff Madelone, his wife Megan, and daughter Grace. The starting point will be at the big grassy area behind the pavilions/boat ramp and will continue around Lanikai loop and back to the starting point.  It is a beautiful place to come and spend the day with family and friends while supporting an amazing cause. Feel free to throw the keiki in the strollers and bring them along! No registration fee will be charged for strollers or wheelchairs. We always have fun prizes for the top 3 finishers in both men/women and for the first couple of keikis that come through!

Post race refreshments will be provided !!

Project ALS, Inc.

Project ALS is a non-profit organization out of NY that focuses on research in finding a cure for ALS. It was founded by 3 sisters, one, whom passed away from this disease. The name of this particular race is in honor of family very dear to me who is struggling with this disease. Grace is the 9 year old daughter of an amazing man, Jeff Madelone, who has now survived this illness for 15 years. The average life expectancy is only 3-5 years. My hope is that this race not only raises money for research, but raises awareness and education of this disease as it is becoming more prevalent, even here on the Hawaiian islands.
