The 2nd Annual Trucker Dukes Memorial 5K presented by UVSC returns Saturday, March 9, 2019 on Holomua Road at the Old Maui High School in Haʻikū.  Event check-in is from 6 to 7 a.m., with an opening ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The race begins at 8 a.m.

The Trucker Dukes Memorial 5K honors the life of Trucker Dukes who in his fight with Neuroblastoma, one of the most aggressive forms of pediatric cancer, touched the hearts of people throughout Maui and the world.

The 2nd Annual Trucker Dukes Memorial 5K will be held at The Old Maui High School in Haiku, Maui on March 9, 2019. PC: UVSC.

Trucker’s cancer battle ended at the age of three on March 3, 2017. Two years later, this event commemorates his life, brings people together, and raises money through UVSC, a Maui based nonprofit organization. UVSC’s mission is to provide hope by raising funds to help individuals fighting cancer.

Joshua and Shauna Dukes are honored to work with UVSC and bring their extended Maui ʻohana together in this unique place in memory of their beloved son. It is a special location for the family, as Shauna and Trucker had many healing runs together on Holomua Road.

The event is family-friendly with activities like the Keiki Run/Walk for kids 13 and under and a 1-mile walk option with strollers allowed.
