Molokai new Area Director Josh Kamalo and I, along with Special Olympics Molokai athletes and volunteers, would to send out a big shout out and mahalo to our six awesome police officers who took to the scaffold in the hot sun. They called out their family and friends and anyone who would listen to them asking for donations to the Cop on Top fundraiser for Special Olympics Molokai.

This is the fourth year since bringing this event home to Molokai. Our athletes as young as 8 years old, family members and volunteers were walking throughout town shaking their bucket asking for donation. We like to express our gratitude of appreciation to all of those who reached deep down into their wallet and or pocket dropping a dollar or more, and even their loose change into our buckets we say thank you. Many of you kept telling us you wish you could give more, but what you gave we counted as a blessing and that we say thank you. Yet many of you said this event should have been held in the beginning of the month, and trust us we will let the state office know. Molokai does not have all the perks and glamour that the other neighbor island has, but what we have we made up for many blessing that is bestowed upon because we have a wonderful community who support this wonderful program.

We like to say mahalo to Beverly, the owner of Atlas, for the past three years she has donated the use of the scaffold for this event. We like to say mahalo to Friendly Market Jeff, Crystal and Judy Egusa for the use of their property in holding this event. And last but not least to you Molokai, for without you, we couldn’t have reached our goal of $3,000. The management team of Special Olympics Molokai is already planning some upcoming fundraisers and one that is being planned in replacement of our Dancing Under the Stars for early next year February. We will keep you notified on these upcoming events.
