Walking for Cash
Molokai Habitat volunteers raise money for housing.
The Molokai Habitat for Humanity `ohana is a big group with even bigger hearts!
Even better than raising thousands for a good cause, is doubling your money with a stroll. Last Saturday, the `ohana of the Molokai Habitat for Humanity and good friends took an early morning walk together during the Molokai leg of the statewide 30th annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk.
Walkers began the morning at the Ho`olehua Post Office and ended at Halona Kaopuiki’s home near Elia’s Corner. Kaopuiki’s home is weeks away from completion and is being built with the aid of Habitat for Humanity.
Walkers received donations for their strides from supporters of Habitat. Molokai Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Jean Han said she was grateful for the donations and is already excited about next year’s event. The funds raised from the walk will remain on Molokai and go toward local Habitat operations.
Mahalo to the walkers and to those who helped raise funds for this year’s charity walk. If you would like to get involved or donate to the Molokai Habitat for Humanity please contact Jean Han at 560-5444.
