2013 Mango Days 5k

Mango Days 5k

August 4, 2013  l  6:30 am  l  Ala Moana Beach Park

5k Run or Walk

Second Race of the Tropical Triple Crown

The 11th annual Mango Days 5k is a benefit for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The course starts at Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park,  and ends near McCoy Pavilion, across the street from Ryan’s Grill.  Four-legged friends are welcome but must be leashed!  Optional breakfast buffet at Ryan’s Grill following the race.  Join in the fun event and support the cause.

Mango Days 5K is a special race which was created to honor the memory of Patty Smith, daughter of Kit and Margie Smith. Patty lost her battle with lymphoma at the age of 19. Kit and Margie compiled Patty’s diary entries, letters to her best friend, poems and drawings into an amazing book called “Mango Days”.  Mango Days keeps Patty’s memory alive.
