Honolulu 5k for Kids

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For many years the NikeTown run provided funds for our public school physical education programs and an opportunity for kids and their families to have a good time exercising together. But NikeTown has closed and with it, the run was discontinued.

That's why Finish Line Productions dba Pacific Sport Events & Timing has stepped in to organize the first ever Honolulu 5K for Kids. It's coming up on May 1st in Downtown Honolulu at the Frank Fasi Civic Center.

Former Miss Hawaii and current fitness buff Candice Gentry visited our Sunrise studios to tell us more about the event. Check out the video to learn more.
