Going the Distance

Have you heard about the 1,000-Mile Club? For 22 years, this club has been tracking, supporting and cheering residents’ efforts as they walk, jog, swim, bike or row their way to 1,000 miles logged in one year. About 30 residents participate each year—one resident has been in the club for 20 years, meaning that she has logged 20,000 miles! Check out these residents who accomplished the 1,000-mile goal in 2021: Ken Benson • Dianna Bolen • Nancy Brown • Deborah Carr • Harrison Cheng • Robert Cunningham • Douglas Daniels • Carol Dolan • Bert Dubois • Shirley Frankel • Janna Gaston • Sharon Gillen • Jonathan Hefferlin • Kathy Higa • Irene Jemetz • Sadra Jones • Michael Kaizoji • Myung Soon Kim • Michael Kishiyama • Dian Kopensky • Mary Lay • Janette Levinrad • Meilan Liew • Jeri Magnetta • Dave Meriwether • Raymond Miller • Krishna Murty • Carole Northrop
