The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa is accepting registrations for their fifth annual Maui Paddle for a Cure which takes place Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. along the Kā‘anapali Beach shoreline.

Maui Paddle for a Cure is a fun, non-competitive event that takes stand up, kayak and canoe paddlers along the Kā‘anapali Beach shoreline in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to raise funds for Susan G. Komen Hawai‘i. The event is presented in partnership with The Butterfly Effect and Maui Jim.

“Each year, we look forward to raising awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen Hawai‘i with the help of our community and partners who come together for Maui Paddle for a Cure,” said Fred Findlen, general manager at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. “Now in our fifth year of presenting this event, we have a goal of achieving $55,000 for the fight against breast cancer.”

Resort guests and the members of the Maui community 18 years and older are invited to an open paddle along Kā‘anapali Beach by stand up paddle board, kayak or canoe, all to benefit this important cause.

Participants can reserve a board to use at the time of registration.


An after party and silent auction at Sunset Terrace in the Hyatt Regency Maui will feature food & drink specials and a performance by Anuhea, a Hawai‘i-based singer and musician.


Participation in the paddle event costs $65 per person, and includes a rash guard, goodie bag, and admission to the after party with food and drink; or $85 per person, which also includes a SUP rental board.

Prices go up after Oct. 1, 2018. After party only tickets can be purchased for $25/person at the door.

One-hundred percent of donations and registration fees will support Susan G. Komen Hawai‘i in their efforts for breast cancer awareness, education, prevention, and treatment programs for women and men in the Hawaiian Islands.


Fundraising will go through the end of October, and the top fundraising individual will win a one-night stay in the Hyatt Regency Maui Presidential Suite, while the top fundraising team will win $500 to Japengo.
