Strive For More® is the proud sponsor OF

The Kona Kids 5K A race to raise money in support of the non-profit organization Kona Kids.

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.
