Kula Haʻahaʻa Track and Field Program led by KSH senior Joanne Farias

Jan. 10, 2020

For her senior legacy project, senior Joanne Farias is helping to pass along her love of running to the next generation of KS Hawaiʻi athletes. 

Farias is helping to relaunch a Kula Haʻahaʻa Track & Field program, which will run for a month on Tuesdays and Thursdays from January 21 through February 22. Practice times are 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

"I have been extremely lucky to be a part of the running community at Kamehameha Schools, which has helped me grow both as an athlete and a person," shared Farias.  

"By coaching elementary track, I hope to be able to help young athletes understand that running can be a way to build relationships, becomes stronger, and have fun. My hope is that during the program, athletes become confident in the skills they already have and develop the courage to explore new opportunities." 

Interested runners, ages 6 and up and enrolled in our elementary school are eligible to participate. Students must have a current physical (additional information is available in the packet). To register your keiki, fill out the Google Form.
