A Salute to Our Veterans Hilo Bay 5K 6th annual race at 7 a.m. will kick off the Fourth of July festivities in Hilo at Lili‘uokalani Park and Gardens.

All veterans, and especially those named by participants, will be honored.

The public is invited to honor a special veteran on this day as we celebrate our country’s independence and the veterans who fought for it.

The event is seeking participants, both runners and walkers. Registration forms and information are available at various businesses around the island and online.

The event supports the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3830 in Pāhoa and their families.

The goal is to increase the size of a program and better serve these veterans and their families, as well as many other veterans on Hawai‘i Island.
