On January 17th, we joined close to 100 people for a Cancer Awareness hike organized by Howard Militante in honor of those affected by breast cancer. He organized the hike for Aunt Sweets who is a cancer survivor and celebrated her birthday the same day. We want to thank the American Cancer Society for supporting this event by donating the use of signs and balloons. Thank you to KHON2 for providing news coverage. It was awesome to see so many community members wake up early and gather for such a great cause!

Walk Wise Hawaii

On January 11th, we partnered with Walkwise to increase pedestrian safety in memory of two pedestrian fatalities. Please contact us if you would like Walkwise to present and share safety resources with your club, team, or group. “Wear white. Cross at a light. Look left and look right!” We are hoping to educate at least 1,000 members in the community about pedestrian safety leading up to Pedestrian Awareness Month in August! Contact us to join in!

Defend The Family Conference

On February 8th we will be hosting two organizations that defend the family across the nation. Concerned parents should contact us for details on how to attend the conference and be informed!
