Trilogy’s Blue ʻAina objective is to clean up and maintain Maui’s reefs, educate the community and raise money for nonprofits.
Trilogy and The Surfrider Foundation are committed to cleaning 12 reefs in 12 months.
Fifty-four volunteers joined participated in a reef clean up on Black Rock near the Kāʻanapali resort area.
As the corporate sponsor for the day’s event, Skyline Eco-Adventure President Danny Boren presented a $1,000 check to the Manaʻolana Pink Paddlers of Maui in support of the nonprofit’s work with cancer survivors.
Manaʻolana Pink Paddlers are a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing the lives of those stricken by cancer by introducing them to the Hawaiian sport of outrigger canoeing. Manaʻolana Pink Paddlers prove by example that there is life after cancer by encouraging physical exercise to build strength, confidence and friendships.
Manaʻolana Pink Paddlers offer a unique service that deeply touches the heart of anyone who paddles or rides with them.
Manaʻolana’s mission is to help survivors regain health and strength after cancer.
Trilogy and The Surfrider Foundation’s their efforts target reefs in distress between Maui’s South side and West side, along with an annual event on Lānaʻi.
