Run For Hope Cancer Benefit: Taste, Tennis, Run, Golf
Four Seasons Resort Hualālai will host the 20th Anniversary Run for Hope from Sept. 9 to 11, 2016, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society Hawai’i Pacific and Friends of the University of Hawai‘i Cancer Center.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts have been committed to fighting this cause since the original Terry Fox run on Maui in 1980; Hualālai continues this tradition for the community of Hawai‘i.
Participants are invited to partake in the three-day, action-packed weekend covering everything from local Hawaiian cuisine, tennis and golf tournaments, and ending with 5k and 10k runs.
“We are incredibly proud to again host the Run for Hope, in its 20th year here at Hualālai,” said Robert Whitfield, regional vice president and general manager of Four Seasons Resort Hualālai. “As stewards of this island, we do everything we can to give back in many ways, with cancer research being one of them, in line with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts initiatives.”
