CONGRATULATIONS to our fundraising winners!

"RUN BECAUSE YOU CAN" The Bieni Kohler Johnson 5K Fun Run was established in 2009 in memory of our young friend, wife, mother and daughter who lost her battle with breast cancer. All net proceeds from this event and all donations go towards the three $1000 scholarships established in her name to support female student athletes attending the Hawai'i Preparatory Academy, where Bieni attended middle and high school. Click on the link '2011 Scholarship Winners' to the left to learn more about these amazing young women who have earned the scholarships.
The run is made possible by the family and friends of Bieni, in conjunction with The Hawaii Preparatory Academy, The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Runningchics.com and Bike Works Kona. Photography: Patrick O'Leary
