“We are honored that Miss Ruby chose to visit Maui as her wish,” said Mike Kelley, owner of Beach Activities of Maui and Kā‘anapali Surf Club.

“We strongly believe in partnering with organizations such as Make-A-Wish Hawai‘i to provide special experiences for children battling life-threatening illnesses.”

While undergoing cancer treatments and spending extended periods of time in the hospital, Ruby spent her time learning about sea creatures.
