Maui’s 28th Annual Day of Hope, Nov. 11October 27, 2017, 11:14 AM HST · Updated October 27, 11:22 AM 0 Comments
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea hosts the 28th Annual Day of Hope Run on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017. The day’s events commence at 6:30 a.m., with a 10K Run / 5K Run & Walk along scenic Wailea Alanui, and finish on the resort’s Ocean Front Lawn. The event is the resort’s most highly anticipated fundraising event of the year, and the public is invited to participate. Proceeds go to the Pacific Cancer Foundation, Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women & Children, and the American Cancer Society.
The run/walk is followed by a continental breakfast on the Ocean Front Lawn, where Master of Ceremonies, Howard “Dash” Dashefsky, Emmy Award-winning news anchor, will preside over the morning’s events.
Wigs for Kids will be on hand to lop off pony tails of 12 inches or longer to be made into real-hair wigs for children going through cancer treatment, and those who donate their hair will be treated to a haircut at The Salon at Four Seasons Resort Maui.
Children ages 3 to 12 years will enjoy the Keiki Dash on Wailea Beach. The day concludes with a traditional Hawaiian canoe ceremony to commemorate loved ones lost to cancer.
The Day of Hope is the culmination of year-around efforts of the Resort’s employee volunteers. Last year, the Resort donated over $55,000.
“We are proud to host this community event as part of our collective fight against cancer. It is especially important to us that the funds raised are allocated to assist patients here in Hawaiʻi, as so many of us have been touched by the devastating effects of this disease,” says General Manager and Regional Vice President Jean Claude Wietzel.
Participants can register now through Oct. 31 to secure the pre-registration rate of $50. Following that, from Nov. 1-11, registration is $60. To register for Day of Hope, visit www.dayofhopemaui.com.
