Friends for Fitness led a cleanup Saturday of the popular Makaeo Walking/Jogging Path at Old Kona Airport Park.
Several volunteers helped beautify the 0.7-mile path, which circumnavigates an array of garden plots maintained by various people and community groups throughout the year.
The path is highly used. A survey conducted about five years ago showing during the busiest times of the day, during the early morning hours and after work hours, that typically 100 people use it.
Friends for Fitness is a West Hawaii community coalition that began in 1992 to decrease the prevalence of sedentary lifestyle and to improve the health of residents. Its mission is to create and promote a healthy, livable and physically active community through partnerships, education, awareness and community participation.
