PCA-Hawaii was a non-profit beneficiary of the inaugural running of The John Henry Mile over the February 11-12 weekend. Held at the University of Hawaii-Manoa’s Clarence T. C. Ching Complex, the fun family event raised funds for our Chapter and the University of Hawaii-Manoa Track and Field program.
The event is named for John Henry Felix, Chairman and CEO of Hawaii Medical Insurance Association and former Chief of Staff to the first Governor of the State of Hawaii, who lives the PCA motto of Better Athletes, Better People. Sir Dr. Roger Bannister, who famously ran the first sub-4-minute-mile, served as Honorary Chair, in support of John Henry Felix. “It's appropriate that The Mile is named in honor of my fellow miler and Oxford colleague,” Sir Roger said. “The mile is a very special event, which played a significant role in my development as an athlete, academic and physician.”
