MADISON – Youngsters from four to 12 years old can enter the ALOHA 1K Fun Run on Aug. 16.

The event at Madison ALOHA, 540 Hughes Road, Suite 11, is scheduled from 3 to 6 p.m. The fun event will offer games, math activities, a photo booth, face painting, balloons and more.

In addition, high school students can use the event to earn volunteer hours to beef up their resumes. Madison ALOHA will donate all proceeds to PTAs in Madison City Schools.

Registration fee for the Fun Run is $15. Individuals cannot register on event day.

Participants in the 1K Fun Run will have a chance to win a Kindle Fire and will be eligible for surprise gifts. Winners will receive medals.

An acronym, ALOHA stands for Abacus Learning of Higher Arthritics. ALOHA is an international child enrichment and brain development program that triggers usage of both halves of the brain.

Dr. Praveena Kommidi founded ALOHA in Madison to prove that learning can be fun for youth, including her own children. “Kids are first taught with the help of the abacus, an ancient mathematical tool, and then later move on to mentally visualizing it to perform complex math problems without the aid of any external tools,” Kommidi said.

ALOHA offers Mind Math, reading and critical writing classes for five- through 12-year-olds as an after-school enrichment program, along with daytime home-schooling classes. ACT and SAT preparation classes for high school students and tutoring services are available.

Kommidi earned a doctorate’s degree in physics at Alabama A&M University. Her two master’s degrees are in applied electronics and physics.

Originating in Malaysia, the franchise now has 160 centers in the United States and is offered in 14 other countries.
