As part of the "Sounds of Freedom," more than 2,500 troops pass by Aloha Tower near the start of the 25th Annual Great Aloha Run. The Great Aloha Run is an 8.15-mile trek along Honolulu harbor from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium. The "Sounds of Freedom" features military units running in formation and began in the second year of the run. The charity event benefits Carole Kai Charities, a philanthropic fund run by Hawaii entertainer and GAR co-founder Carole Kai Onouye, and has generated more than $7.6 million for more than 150 nonprofit organizations, including more than $350,000 for military Morale, Welfare, and Recreation organizations.
