Plastic Free Hawaii - International Coastal Cleanup 2017

HIC will be in attendance at BOTH of the plastic free Hawaii cleanups on September 16th sponsored by the Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation's Plastic Free Hawaii Program for International Coastal Cleanup. The locations are:

  1. Kahuku Beach (James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge; enter the gate at Mile Marker 14 and follow banners to the beach).
  2. Kailua Beach Park (hosted by Kailua Beach Adventures)

Check-in at 8:30am, Cleanup from 9:00am - 11:00am

This is also their Great Sunscreen Trade-in Event. Any attendees can bring in their chemical sunscreens to trade-in for free samples of RAW ELEMENTS USA sunscreen. All chemical sunscreens will be collected for use at a display to help ban oxybenzone in Hawaiʻi.

Please bring a hat, sunscreen & a reusable water bottle for refilling! You'll also get a free Bee's Wrap (woo hoo!) Bee’s Wrap makes reusable beeswax-based food wraps that serve as an alternative to single-use plastics!

Light snacks will be provided to volunteers.


Please join me for my annual making strides for breast cancer walk

Aloha All,

I am hoping you can join me or support me in this important cause.

As you know it is a passion of mine to find a cure for Breast Cancer so future generations do not have to endure the pain and horrible effect of this disease.

The walk is on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Ke`ehi Lagoon Beach Park in Honolulu.

This will also qualify you for the 3rd Wellness Challenge!

I want to thank those of you who joined me in past years and I hope you can join me again.  If you did not join me last year, I hope you will consider joining me this year or supporting me or our team!

I have a pink ribbon pin for the first 7 people that join me.

I have pink wrist bands for the first 8 people that donate to our team.

If you raise or donate $25 to your walk by Sept 9 you will receive a pink "Hope Hero" cape to wear at the event.

Remember “Real Men Wear Pink” too!

Making Strides for Breast Cancer Event

Aloha All,

As you know, our current Wellness Challenge to is participate in a Walk/Run/Ride event.

With this in mind I just signed up for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The American Cancer Society is a leader in helping to finish the fight against breast cancer. They are doing the most to help those touched by breast cancer in every community today and are working to find cures to end the disease tomorrow. By walking in and fundraising for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, I’m doing my part to help finish the fight.

As you all know this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  I know all of you know someone who has been affected by Breast Cancer!

Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to join me as a walker for this powerful, noncompetitive event that raises funds and awareness to end breast cancer. You can also help by supporting me with a donation of $5, $25, $50, or more to help me reach my fundraising goal!

A gift of just $50 could provide four rides to or from treatment for a cancer patient. Through the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery® program , volunteer drivers provide transportation to and from treatment for patients who need it.

Please consider walking with me or supporting me with a donation.  I set the team goal as only $100 so we are sure to make our goal, but if you wish to join me and set a personal goal, even if you do not reach the goal you can still participate.  There is no fee to register.

Thank you in advance for your support, and helping us to finish the fight!
