KPAL 1st Annual Hammerhead Sprint Triathlon & 5k Fun Run - Sunday, July 17, 2016

posted Jul 13, 2016, 12:32 PM by Mandi Swanson   [ updated Jul 13, 2016, 12:37 PM ]

GIRR will be skating in the 1st Annual KPAL 5k Fun Run. Don't worry, we're not eligible to place for 1st, 2nd, 3rd... prizes, since skating is an advantage over running.

This event raises money for KPD's KPAL program, which provides positive activities and role models for Kauai's youth. So, we encourage you to sign up at http://www.kauai.gov/KPAL/UpcomingEvents for KPAL's 5k Fun Run/Walk or the Triathlon (online registration). 

We hope to see you there!
