Student organizing charity walk Saturday
For her senior project, King Kekaulike High School student Tamra Takemoto is organizing a breast cancer charity walk from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Na Ali'i Stadium, on the school grounds in Pukalani.
A $5 entrance fee will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Hawaii.
