Just want­ed to share this Face­book post by for­mer long­time PTA mem­ber Lawrence So (whose kids have since grad­u­at­ed from Liholi­ho).

It’s about the kind­ness of strangers, in this case Justin and Lau­ra Alford who have raised (and con­tin­ue to raise) so much mon­ey for Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School. We are extreme­ly hum­bled by their efforts to help a school that they have no ties to. Thank you Justin, Lau­ra, and all of your sup­port­ers. We are so very grate­ful.

Also thank you to Lawrence for con­tin­u­ing to help Liholi­ho as well! (He even came out to help with War­rior Run!)

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

The War­rior Run is com­ing up quick! It’s next week Wednes­day, Feb­ru­ary 21. (Weath­er is sup­posed to get bet­ter!) Kids have been prepar­ing for months by run­ning and exer­cis­ing dur­ing P.E., so they are ready to go! Don’t for­get to use this week­end to get spon­sors! (You don’t have to col­lect mon­ey until after the run.) There are also spe­cial prizes to be award­ed!

Two win­ners per grade lev­el will be announced after the pledge sheets and
dona­tions are col­lect­ed.

The top stu­dents in each grade who col­lect the most mon­ey in dona­tions or who
run the most laps will win prizes or gift cards donat­ed to the school by our
com­mu­ni­ty busi­ness part­ners.

In case you can’t find your War­rior Run pack­et, you’re in luck! (click below):
