Thank You!!

The 7th Annual Homeward Bound 5k race was a success and we thank you all for participating. This event would not have been possible without all of our sponsors: Atlas Insurance Agency, Cardiology Clinic, Lex Brodies, TOPA Financial Center, Hawaii Business Solutions, Dr. Osamu Fukuyama, and Island Insurance Foundation, as well as Pacific Sports Event and Timing provided by Honolulu Marathon, water provided by Menehune Waters, game tickets for the Hawaii Bowl provided by Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic, coffee provided by Starbucks Manoa, packet pickup location provided by Running Room Kapahulu, and Power Bars provided by A.C. Lyau Company LTD.
We have so much love for the community that came out to support our mission to end homelessness in Hawaii: Special thanks to Mayor Caldwell, our team at IHS, Liza, Aaron, and all of our runners and walkers. It was an honor to host this year's race and to continue the legacy originally started by Tama Fukuyama and Maya Grossman and continued by Hallie Lam and Noe Lum. This year we mentored the delightful pair, Mia Schiel and Claire Cutler, who will be continuing the race next year and on.
Great job today to everyone who ran or walked! The results are posted here. Thank you always and we hope to see you next year on the course again!

Your Race Directors, Noe Obermeyer and Sarah Imai
