Scholarship Donation Mahalo

Shout out to my friend Jim Foti and the Kanaka Ikaika Racing Association. Big mahalos for the generous donation to our Friends of Molokai High and Molokai Middle Schools foundation. At this year’s Shaw and Partners Molokai Challenge Race held in May, Jim set aside a portion of every entry fee with all the proceeds going to our Friends Foundation. This donation will help all our students at Molokai High and Molokai Middle schools. Mahalo to our worldwide paddling community for participating in the Kanaka Ikaika race. A part of your entry fee came to us. Yessah, a $3,135 donation for the Friends Foundation. 

And a big shout out to our Maui Paddling Hui Ohana for their continued support. The Maui Hui make an annual donation to our Friends Foundation as part of their hugely successful Maui to Molokai (M2M) OC-1 race. Ricky Balidoy made a donation to the Friends Foundation about eight or nine years ago and has continued to do so every year. This year we received $2,500 from the Maui Hui. Mahalo paddlers and sponsors for the $2,500 donation to the Friends Foundation.
