Maui Paddle for a Cure 2016

The Third Annual Maui Paddle for a Cure takes place on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016 at Hanakaʻōʻō Beach in West Maui.

This fun non-competitive event for stand up, kayak and canoe paddlers takes participants along the shoreline of Kāʻanapali Beach to raise funds for Susan G. Komen, Hawaiʻi affiliate to support their efforts in battling breast cancer through education, awareness, prevention and treatment.

The event also includes a community water activity and after party at Hyatt Regency Maui with Anuhea.

Presented by Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa, Maui Jim, and The Butterfly Effect, Maui Paddle for a Cure has already raised almost $30,000 in funds, and has set a $50,000 goal for fundraising in 2016.

Organizers say 100% of registration and donations goes to support Susan G. Komen Hawaiʻi, with 75% of the money raised to stay in the state.
