SUPing for Youth

Youth in Motion News Release

The Youth in Motion (YIM) is going full-steam ahead with their water challenge this Saturday – the Molokai Challenge.

YIM has eight participants doing SUP, three departing Kamalo around 10 a.m. along with one sunfish and some kayakers. In addition, a crew from Molokai Canoe Club will also be paddling down with an approximate start time of 9 a.m. From about 11- noon, some kayakers and SUP’ers will be leaving Rice patch. Everyone, bar the canoes, will attempt to touch land at Hotel Molokai between noon and 1 p.m. and then all depart the Hotel to head to Kaunakakai Wharf. So far we have a head count of about 30 participants.

Pot luck and a community introduction to the YIM’s programs and future plans will be held at the canoe beach by Malama Park from 3 p.m. onwards. Hope to see you there!

An entry donation of $100 is being asked for those crossing the channel; on-island entry fees will probably be much less. Please contact Clare Seeger Mawae at 808-553-4227, 808-336-0946 or via email at: clare@molokai-outdoors.com
