Bieni Kohler-Johnson 5K Fun Run and Dog Walk

This fun community event honors Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83, an HPA alumna who passed away in 2009 after a valiant battle against breast cancer. Proceeds benefit the Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund at HPA, as well as the North Hawaii Community Hospital Cancer Center chosen by the HPA student service program.

The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund is intended to help a deserving female HPA student follow her dreams. It is awarded to someone not only gifted in athletics, academics, or the arts, but who understands her responsibility to work hard to develop and share those gifts. In the spirit of namesake, the scholarship is awarded to a young woman who is an inspiration to others, who demonstrates a shining sincerity of commitment and unhesitant willingness to go the "extra mile" for friends, family, or a worthy cause. This year four outstanding young women received a scholarship from this Fund.

Thank you for supporting The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund, and continuing her legacy by honoring deserving female students at HPA with this scholarship.

Mahalo to all of the volunteers, runners (their pooches), and the Hawai'i community for coming together on Sunday, September 24, 2017 to raise awareness for breast cancer.

Bieni Kohler-Johnson grew up on the Big Island and graduated from HPA in 1983. A devoted mother, loving spouse, and passionate athlete, she fought valiantly to defeat breast cancer, sadly losing that battle in June of 2009. The Bieni 5K Fun Run was established that year by her friend and classmate, Liz Noetzel, to honor her memory and to provide support for the scholarship in BIeni's name. Each year, four HPA female student-athletes are selected to receive this distinguished honor in recognition of their gifts in athletics, academics, and/or the arts, and for their commitment to working hard to develop and share those gifts.
