Running 13.5 miles though puddles and curtains of rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the many runners who supported Children’s Justice Center of Oahu (CJC) at the second annual Hapalua, Hawaii’s Half Marathon run in March. A big MAHALO to all who helped raise over $30,000 for CJC. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

HELPING HAWAII'S CHILD VICTIMS
A group of young soccer players got a kick out of spearheading a collection of roughly 1,000 slippers to raise awareness of Hawaii’s abused children during April, traditionally Child Abuse Awareness and Sexual Assault Prevention Month. The Children’s Justice Center (CJC) and Friends of Children’s Justice Centers (FCJC) send a warm mahalo to the Leahi Green girls’ soccer team, pictured in front (in green t-shirts). The girls coaches, parents, members of CJC and FCJC, and various partnering organizations surround them. Special thanks also to Missing Child Center of Hawaii and Girl Scouts of Hawaii for their support!
THE POWER OF ONE
Never underestimate the power of one. For her individual English project, Kamehameha Schools sophomore Kaili Perez chose Children’s Justice Center of Oahu (CJC) because “CJC is a great cause that helps the children of Hawaii.” Kaili singlehandedly held a series of three bake sales during her spring break and netted $600 for the Center. MAHALO to Kaili, surrounded by CJC staff, from l-r, Sandie Kato, Cari Tasoe, Elyse Smout, Nancy Tolentino, Kaili Perez, Carol Shoji, Lisa Pang-Saito and Jasmine Mau-Mukai.
