    The Kauai Coffee Worksite Wellness Challenge team, from left Nuelma Rull and Michelle Kimura, with team coach Dana Hazelton and team member Tanelle Martin, enjoy the breakfast challenge at the Courtyard by Marriott at Coconut Beach in Waipouli.

Ever wonder who Bev Brody’s (congratulations on the Kaiser Permanente special award!) boss is? Bev was thrilled to announce that her boss was here (Elisa Yadao of HMSA said Kauai’s rainiest day is better than a sunny day on Oahu) for the Worksite Wellness Challenge kickoff at the Courtyard by Marriott at Coconut Beach (did Barbara Gusman know they have a team in this challenge?) that did not get canceled due to the downpours.

Dana Hazelton is all gung ho about making sure the Kauai Coffee team does well on this challenge, and was that Mark Perriello helping Michelle Emura and the Aqua Engineers team?

Derek Kawakami (how many of you knew he authored the Safe Routes to School bill, HB 2626) was wearing red because Friday was National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease (Derek said every 80 seconds, we lose a woman to cardiovascular disease). And, of course, Friday was also Groundhog (how many of you have seen one?) Day.

Kudos to Igor Jelcic and John Creamer, who opened the AutoZone (have they tried the Home Style Cooking next door yet?) Wednesday in the Waipouli Town Center near the Foodland store!
