Maui Walk 2018

$3,419 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 39 people in 7 months
Four years ago, I did my first 165 mile walk around the island of Maui as a fund raiser for the activities departments of Hale Makua and raised around $3,000.  A year later, I did another walk for the Haku Baldwin Center and raised about $5,000.  Both times I did my walks, the only people who ever stopped to asked if I needed a ride or assistance were the people who lived on the east side of the island.  I was so touched by their kindness/kokua that I decided to do another walk to some how benefit them.    So I have chosen the non profit, Ma Ka Hana Ka Iki.  Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike teaches young people carpentry skills who then go out in their community and fix or sometimes even help build homes for others.  What better way to repay the kindness of the people of Hana.   This time I will be letting 5 people join me on this 11 day, 165 mile walk around Maui.  Along the way I hope to share with them the beautiful scenery, history and Hawaiian crafts I've learned over the years.  I figure if I can raise $5,000 by myself I should be able to raise $10,000 with the help of 5 others.  Some of the money will be for buying necessary equipment like, a portable camp toilet, a lua tent, a 5' folding table, a piece of plywood and lumber to build a shelf to transport equipment, cargo nets, a 5 gallon insulated water jug, etc, but the rest will be going to Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike.  The walk is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Nov. 6th and end on Sat., Nov 17th.  Mahalo for any amount you would like to donate.

Seven more days?!?! I'm excited and nervous. I have all my equipment but not so sure I've trained enough. Oh well, I still have a few days to get is a hike or two. I'm excited to meet the kids of Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike and Kui some kalo with them at their school. I'm also excited to see and experience the island one more time. #gofundme.com/5rmvya0 #makahanakaike #mauiwalk2018

The 165 mile, 11 day, fund raising walk around Maui starts in 2 weeks! I have most of my gear but haven't had time to train. Yikes! I hope my body will be ready in time. I still need help to raise money to help support the Hana non profit, Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike so please donate what you can. Also, watch for me out on the road between Nov 6-17 and shoot me a Shaka. Mahalo!

Aloha all, in just a month's time I will begin my 11 day, 165 mile around the island to raise money for the non profit Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike. I was hoping to find a few people to join me but it's nearly impossible to take off 11 days from work, even for me, so I will be going alone.
I have already gotten a few donations from from some incredible people but could use the help from a few more. I know it isn't easy with all of the recent tragedies on Maui and around the world but whatever you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Mahalo for your kokua!
