Pacific Islands Club Saipan hosts second Hafa Adai 5K Run

 

More than 600 participants have registered for the islands biggest sporting event, the PIC Hafa Adai 5K Run. This year’s 5K will benefit the Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. The event will take to the streets of San Antonio on Saturday April 18th at 7:30am.

The Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence is a community-based, nonprofit organization. “Our mission is to “promote, nourish, and sustain a collective movement against violence in the CNMI,” said executive director Maise Tenorio. “In other words, we work to create a community that is safe and loving for all of its members… The Coalition is a small organization with a big goal! We are passionate about what we do and believe in the capacity of our community to create a future that is violence-free! We thank PIC for its commitment to serving the community as well!”

“We have been absolutely overwhelmed with the amount of support we received this year,” said Training and Events Manager Cindy Franz. “This time last year, we didn’t have nearly as many people registered. This year, I know we will break the 1,000 person mark!” 1,200 participants will be the cut off for this year’s fundraiser. Nearly 900 people joined the inaugural event last year. “We are always trying something new here at PIC Saipan, “said Assistant SEA Director and last year’s race director Dennis Tababa. “We knew that it would be something fun and few for the community to participate in, but we really had no idea it would be as big as it was. This is the main reason we increased the participation limit. After 1,200, we felt that safety might be an issue.”

Each year, PIC hosts three big fundraising events. The first part of the year starts with the PIC Duck Race for Cancer where 2,500 ducks were sold worldwide. The Hafa Adai 5k is run in April. Then, PIC wraps up the year with its annual Dodgeball tournament for the kids in the late Fall.

“Once again, PIC has partnered up with a number of sponsors to help make this 5K as successful as possible,” said SEA Director Glenn Policare. “We have teamed up with Amber Lynn Mendiola and her team at Let’s Move Marianas in an effort to help spread the word about the event and get kids motivated to join.” Let’s Move Marianas will be coordinating a $1,000.00 sporting good donation to the top three schools with the most participants. Elementary, middle and high schools have all been encouraged to join the event. The elementary (grades 1-5), junior high (grades 6-8) and high schools (grades 9-12) which have the most paid entries into the Hafa Adai 5K will earn their respective school some brand new sporting equipment.

“The kids get a chance to help the cause and earn some new gear for their schools at the same time,” said Policare. Aside from helping the NMCADSV, all participants will be entered into the post-race raffle. Prizes, which total more than $10,000.00 in value, include Annual memberships to PIC Saipan along with lunches, Sunday Brunches, Gym Memberships and room stays. Other prizes include Sea Touch passes, admission tickets to the Sand Castle Magic Show, free drinks for a month from the Shack, fabulous prizes from Triple J Five Star Wholesale and a round trip ticket to Japan from Delta Air Lines. The top 10 finishers will receive additional travel certificate vouchers from Delta Air Lines as well.

The 5KM will start and finish at PIC Saipan and will feature five different coloring stations along the Beach Road route. Participants are encouraged to wear white attire so that the full effect of the coloring stations can be seen post-race. Volunteers will be celebrating each runner’s arrival by greeting them with “holi powder.” This is biodegradable mixture of corn starch and food coloring.

“This year will have more colors, more prizes, more runners and more fun,” said Franz “The five color stations (blue, pink, green, yellow and red) along with two water stations will line Beach Road starting at PIC and stretch all the way to Triple J Five Star Wholesale.”

PIC Saipan would like to thank all the generous sponsors who made this event possible: Pacific Trading Company, Let’s Move Marianas, Triple J Motors, T Galleria, Delta Air Lines, MVA, Triple J Five Star Wholesale, I Love My Tobacco Free CNMI, DYS, DCCA, CNMI Diabetes Prevention and Control Program, Department of Public Health CNMI Immunization Program, Island Apparel, Sea Touch, Sandcastle, Bridge Capital LLC and The Shack.

Hafa Adai 5K Run

Entry fees are only $10. Entry forms for the Hafa Adai 5K can be found at Triple J Motors on Beach road or in the PIC lobby. For more information, please contact Cindy Franz at 237-5147.

Bike For Life takes you back in to the road

The Pacific Islands Club Saipan brings you back the “Bike For Life,” an annual 50 km road and mountain bike race around the beautiful island of Saipan. This race started in 2011 and was called Pre-HOM Fun Ride at that time. It was intended as a practice run for the course designed for the “Hell of the Marianas” that PIC has initiated in 2007, a project spearheaded by a bike enthusiast himself and triathlete Kieran Daly, PIC Saipan‘s General Manager at that time.  After the HOM race in 2012, PIC‘s management decided to turnover the event to the Marianas Visitors Authority. Hence, this fun bike race was tagged Bike For Life and is on its third year now.

What’s new in this year’s Bike For Life is the race course. Like the previous years, it begins at Pacific Islands Club and heads south to Koblerville along Chalan Tun Thomas P. Sablan Road (also known as Beach Road) and turns right at the intersection of As Gonno Road and heads downhill. The road makes a sharp left turn at the bottom and goes up to Sassa Lane where you make another left turn. By then, the airport would be on the right side as you drive on gravel and dirt road until the intersection of Chalan Tun Herman Pan is reached.  Turn right and thread along Chalan Tun Herman Pan road until the end and make a right turn at Isa Drive. Isa Drive is winding and will take you to the highest point on the course which is around Capitol Hill. Unlike the previous years, this year’s course deviates from going down Kingfisher, giving novice riders some ease. At the end of Isa Drive at Lower Base area, riders are to take a right turn at Chalan Pale Arnold road and head up north all the way to Wing Beach where a U-turn is designated. The course then continues along Chalan Pale Arnold and heads back south to the finish line at Pacific Islands Club.

“It is such a great way to start one’s weekend,” according to Sports, Entertainment and Activities Assistant Director Dennis Tababa, who also advises everyone to exercise caution all the time and as well as to have fun.

Bike For Life 2014 Event Poster“We invite all bike riders and enthusiasts to join us this coming weekend for this fun and rewarding bike around the island,” says Tababa. The deadline to turn in entry forms is on October 23, 2014. See you all there!

Treats for the SUPER MOM!

Yes, we always would like to make our Mom feel very special and loved the most. There are quite a number of things we can do to make our goal possible, and they are not necessarily expensive and hard to do. Rather affordable and can easily be achieved however, it takes a just little planning ahead. Here are some suggestions that might work for you.

1. Pick up fresh flowers from your own backyard and lay them next to her bed or in a specific room in your house where she commonly leads the first thing after she wakes up. It could be the kitchen or dining room.

2. Prepare a nice breakfast for her. It doesn’t to be very elaborate, simply think of something she likes.

3. Prepare an aromatic candle or scented oil for her in the bathroom. Put a little note near it, so she would recognize that it is for her.

4. For lunch, you can book a table for the family at her favorite restaurant. You can also choose to order takeout. You may need Dad’s help to finance this part of your plan.

5. Remember, Mom should not be lifting a finger to do any household chores. Distribute domestic tasks among siblings.

6. You could all gather in the living area and watch her favorite movie or TV show. Playing charades can also be fun and engaging.

7. The remainder of the afternoon can be spent relaxing at the beach or at the waterpark.

8. Get her a gift certificate for a spa massage, manicure, pedicure, or hair salon.

9. Make a montage of your family pictures and have it framed.

10. For dinner, you can cook her favorite dish.

11. However, when and if you can afford, taking her to a nice brunch, an elegant dinner, or booking a room for her in a hotel will surely be sure hit. Hint, hint… You can always take her to Pacific Islands Club Saipan where wonderful memories with the family are created.

At the end of the day, no matter what you do, give her a tight hug and whisper into her ear how much she means to you. Tell her that the love you possess for her is nothing short of forever.
