Carole Kai Charities, Inc.
Carole Kai Charities organizes the Great Aloha Run, makes donations to local charities, and promotes a Festival of Events that stretches from October through February.
Since 1985, the Great Aloha Run has accomplished and achieved many milestones. It was the first largest first-time running event in the state with over 12,000 individuals signing up for the event in its first year. The Great Aloha Run has also been recognized nationally as one of the top “100 Great Road Races” to participate in by Runner’s World Magazine.
The Great Aloha Run...one of Hawaii’s largest participatory races...has raised nearly $11 million awarded to over 150 non-profit health and human service organizations and community groups throughout Hawaii.
The Great Aloha Run, an 8.15-mile foot race, begins at Aloha Tower and finishes in the Aloha Stadium. There are divisions for elites, age groups, wheelchair and hand cycle competitors, Sounds of Freedom (military running in formation) and those who just want to walk the course with friends and socialize along the way in the Back of the Pack.
