HOSA Students Volunteer at Bike Race
Molokai HOSA News Release
Molokai High School’s Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Club helped stage Kualapu`u School’s inaugural Molokai Metric event last weekend by providing trained First Aid/CPR responders at each of the six aid stations on the 100-K course. Aid stations extended east from Hotel Molokai to Morris Point and back, then west to Kualapu`u, Airport Loop, and return — a total of 62 miles of road.
Luke Kikukawa served as the HOSA Club volunteer recruiter and trainer. After using a GoFundMe.com account to finance his own CPR/ First Aid Trainer Certification on Oahu, Luke returned to Molokai to provide CPR/First Aid training to the following current and former HOSA club members: Rainbow Kee, Oceana Madani, Sabrina Curtis, Kahale Ramos, Grayson Aldridge, Tanner Mosher, Geisha Nunez and Misty Parker. These students then volunteered to spend five hours each on Sunday, Jan. 18 to insure the safety of the more than 30 riders registered in the bike ride event.
Kualapu`u School would like to thank these young adults for their support in staging Molokai’s first-ever century ride. Seasoned riders in the event remarked that the aid stations were the best that they had ever seen. The enthusiasm and professionalism of the HOSA work force was noted. Thank you MHS HOSA students for all of your hard work!
