What's New Plumbers Ohana Enjoy Another Brisk Aloha Fun Run
No offense to our active members in this front-page display of these hearty retirees, all one-time plumbers. They show in their maturing years each is still fit to make the annual Aloha Fun Run. At left, Alec Hamaguchi, on the right, is among a handful who has taken part in all 12 races supported by Local 675. His buddy, Eddie Lum, is a regular running companion. Center photo of Ernie Theodore, shows a winning form at the finish line. At far right, Stanley Chun credits the race for an earlier participation as a Hawaii representative at the American Hearts Association’s mainland-held special olympics.

More than 20,000 Oahuans, including some 200 affiliated with the organized plumbing industry, once again braced the soft dawn chill on Presidents Day awaiting the start of the 8.1 mile sprint/jaunt from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium.

For the 3lst Carol Kai extravaganza held to benefit local charities, the annual exercise under Kaiser Permanente’s primary sponsorship this year, was a “bonus” repeated for Plumbers Local Union 675 members and participating family ties, the Union covering their entry fees and treating them to a complimentary post-run breakfast.

“One couldn’t ask for a healthier way to spend a holiday,” enthused Alec Hamaguchi, among a handful of retirees who has taken advantage of the Union’s generosity since its inaugural co-sponsorship 12 years ago. Alec, a lifelong bachelor with ties to signatory companies over a 36-year plumbing career, views the event as also a “neat way to bond with former associates.”

“That’s exactly my feeling,” echoed Randall Freitas, who enjoyed his best finish at l hour 17 minutes, and who again set the pace for the plumbing ohana. Accompanied by wife Lois for their 11th run together, Randy said he agrees with fellow retirees the Union stands out as a role model in helping them stay fit after a rewarding work life.
