On October 10-11th, over 300 cancer survivors and supporters will paddle six-person outrigger canoes across the 'Au'au channel from Lahaina to Lana'i, a 34-mile round trip journey, to raise funds for the Pacific Cancer Foundation in their 11th Annual Paddle for Life fundraiser.
It's not a race... it's a voyage, and all of our Maui Ohana are invited to join us for the event. You can get your own team together or join a crew. Experience the Hawaiian Culture through paddle, ceremony, chants and a BBQ on the beach at Manele Bay!
There is truly a remarkable parallel between an ocean paddling voyage and the journey experienced by cancer patients and survivors. Both involve tremendous physical, mental and emotional strength. Both require patience and perseverance. And, ultimately, it takes a team to make the journey successful.
