Mission Statement

Be Active. Be Fit. Be Involved. "Create a diverse, user-friendly, beautiful recreation area at the Maka'eo Walking & Jogging Path that promotes healthy lifestyles through community participation and collaboration.


Friends For Fitness began in 1992 to decrease the prevalence of sedentary lifestyles and to improve the health of Hawaii residents. Our mission is to create and promote a healthy, livable, and physically active community. Our members are community volunteers who are passionate about improving physical activity resources in our community.
Friends For Fitness has a long history of project involvement from defining needs assessment, advocacy, physical activity projects, education, and creating both a physical activity resource guide and website. Projects relating to the Old Kona Airport State Park started back in 1993 with support for the construction of the 50-meter pool and jogging path. The succulent garden and dozens of volunteer gardens welcome joggers and strollers daily. Recently completed lawn area attracts families for picnics and outside yoga. Current projects include development of a creative arts garden, installation of new water supply system, and an expanded native plants garden and memorial area
