King Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School along with its teach­ers, stu­dents, staff, and PTA Board would like to extend a BIG MAHALO to Mr. Justin Alford and Mrs. Lau­ra Alford for being “car­ing com­mu­ni­ty con­trib­u­tors” in help­ing our school raise much need­ed funds for the past 3 years! Their com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion in help­ing our small school in the heart of Kaimu­ki leaves us speech­less and grate­ful for their kind­ness and gen­eros­i­ty!

Two years ago, Mr. Alford (a Wash­ing­ton native) stum­bled upon our web­site while look­ing for dis­counts for the Hapalua (half-marathon) race. He noticed that our school was run­ning a small fundrais­er for Hapalua par­tic­i­pants, so he took it upon him­self to raise some mon­ey for our school. Lit­tle did we know that his Her­culean fundrais­ing efforts would pay off BIG time!

For the past 3 Hapalua races (2015 — 2017), the Alfords have raised over $5,600!

Thanks to their gen­eros­i­ty, we were able to pur­chase a new PA sys­tem for the cafe­te­ria and also will be able to pur­chase new walkie-talkies for our school staff!

We’d like to express our deep­est grat­i­tude and also thank you from the bot­tom of our hearts! Maha­lo Nui Loa!
~The teach­ers, staff, PTA, and espe­cial­ly stu­dents of Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School

Updat­ed 4/18/2017:
We were so lucky to wel­come Justin and Lau­ra to our April PTA Board meet­ing! They were in Hawaii for the Hapalua race, of course. They found time to stop by before head­ing back to Wash­ing­ton. We pre­sent­ed them with leis and a gift bas­ket (a small gift for their huge fundrais­ing efforts)!
