On July 4, the VFW Post 3830 will have its annual 5k Run/Walk in Hilo. This is a major fundraiser for the organization and helps to support the Veterans outreach programs of our post. This years event will honor your special veteran on race day and during the coming year.

If you have registered for the run, mahalo for your support. You may pick up your packet on Friday (July 3) at Liliuokalani Park in Hilo from 10 am to 6 pm.

If not, we could really use your help. Registrations are running way behind this year and the run is only 3 days away!

You can easily register online at www.ASalutetoOurVeterans.org or stop by Liliuokalani Park in Hilo on Friday, July 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday morning from 6-6:45 a.m.

Your donation of $25 entitles you to a t-shirt and bag and will help many needy Veterans and their families. You need not be present to receive your shirt, just email and let us know and we’ll get it to you, either at one of our breakfasts or by mail.

Thank you for your continued support.
