2023 Recap

The Pineapples were in full force and with good weather the Tropical 5K Classic made winners of Lending Hearts and The Stanley Marks Blood Cancer Research Fund once again.

The Royal Family, Princess Kaylee O'Brien and Prince Bryson Gray, presented teams with their pineapples and trophies to the winners. By a landslide our ‘Gold Pineapple’ award once again went, to Team Jen’s Brigade. The team donation total was just over $3,500.

The music was provided by Mile Post 6 who rocked the LUAU. Athlinks handled the registration and the Middle Road Volunteer Fire Department made sure the Water Slide was fully operational. Many thanks for all the energy and excitement our participants brought to this event.

We had Fun, We got Dirty and We raised money to Beat Cancer. But it’s not too late to give! Donations are still being taken. Help us reach our goal of $40,000 for this year. Please find it in your hearts to Give.

Our Volunteer Staff (Pineapple Patrol) not only kept the event on task but also did an amazing job on set-up and clean up. Everyone knows, nothing goes anywhere without the effort of a tireless Committee. From the planning, setup, registration and clean up our Committee got it done.

Many, many thanks to all…but our work is not done beating cancer. 2024 is around the corner and as everyone knows
…‘Runners are Wanted’!
