The weekend before Founder’s Day on the Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi campus has recently become Pauahi Weekend, a tradition a few years ago as senior legacy projects raising funds for the Pauahi Foundation were consistently held just days before celebrating the birth of our Founder, Ke Aliʻi Bernice Pauahi Bishop.

This year, the tradition continues with two special events on Saturday, December 15 raising funds for college scholarships offered through the foundation.

This year’s fun-run/walk event takes on a Christmas theme as seniors Devin Jose and Kamaile Makua take the reins in coordinating the Dash for Pauahi. There are three different race options to choose from—a 5k around the Hawaiʻi campus, a 1.5 mile run inside Paiʻea Stadium, and even a 200 meter dash for keiki.

And since it’s Christmas themed, participants are encouraged to don their favorite holiday attire, coming dressed in Christmas colors, or their favorite characters. Find ono food, face painting and prizes at the finish.

The entry fee is $15 for adults or $10 for kids, with kids 3 and under free, If you register online before the event, you can get a $3 discount.

Register for the event or get more information at Registration opens at 7:45 a.m. and event continues until 10:30 a.m.

Around the same time, the annual 4-on-4 Grass Volleyball Tournament takes place, giving participants a chance to put their volleyball skills to the test, and help raise some funds for college scholarships. 

Senior Mahina Kenoi is coordinating this year's tournament as her senior legacy project. 

Entry fees for the tournament are $10 a person, $40 for the foursome. Registration opens at 8 a.m. and play starts at 9 a.m. You can register in advance at

Donʻt miss this great chance to have some fun, celebrate the season and honor our founder by supporting these haumāna in their efforts to raise funds for the Pauahi Foundation.
