Strive For More is the proud sponsor of the Kona Kids 5K - a race to raise money in support of the non-profit organization

About Kona Kids & the Kona Kids 5k

Kona Kids is a non-profit organization on the Big Island of Hawaii which empowers the kids of Kona by teaching ownership of mind, body, and goals.  The organization is run by an incredible woman, athlete, and friend – Coach Carrie McCoy.

Carrie is truly a rare soul who has an abundance of compassion and care for others.  Her positivity is infectious and an inspiration!  I, Steven Nathenson (CEO & Founder of Strive For More), can’t thank her enough for the kindness and support she has shown me over the years.

Sponsoring this race is a way for me to give back to Carrie and support the wonderful kindness her organization does for the children of Kona.

The Details

The 2020 Kona Kids 5k will take place from August 15th to August 22nd virtually.  Since it’s virtual, you can run anytime and anywhere! 

The race is a 5k – 3.1 mile – race.  Run, walk, or jog along with your favorite furry friend.  The choice is yours!
