When we look at the health of our Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) community in Utah-- heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and most importantly infant mortality are among the top health disparities. 

The Pacific Health 5K is a way to remind our NHPI community members to stay active and to have fun doing it as a family or with friends.  We help raise awareness on important health issues, promote healthy lifestyles, and build healthy communities one step at a time. 


We concluded our 2022 Pacific Health 5K on September 17th. Thank you to all our volunteers, community partners, and participants for helping us to put on an amazing and fun event. Photos from the event are now available! Check them out today! 


We can always use more helping hands! If you are interested in volunteering for this event, we need you. Please contact our Pacific Health 5K organizer,  Laneta Fitisemanu at Laneta@upihc.org
