Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea to Host 31st Annual Virtual Day of Hope Run/Walk
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea will host the 31st Annual Day of Hope Run/Walk, with proceeds to benefit Pacific Cancer Foundation, Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women & Children, and American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge.
Following a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Resort has reimagined the fundraiser. This year, a virtual 5K and 10K run/walk and streamed ceremonies will allow participants worldwide to be a part of the Resort’s tradition.
“We’re excited to invite people from all corners of the globe to take part in the Resort’s Day of Hope this year,” said Four Seasons Resort General Manager Ben Shank. “The virtual format gives our extended Four Seasons Maui ʻohana (family)—regardless of where they are physically—an opportunity to join our community as we raise funds for those affected by cancer in Hawaiʻi.”
Runners and walkers who wish to participate in the virtual 5K and 10K run/walk, can register starting today by visiting the Day of Hope website. Participants can sign up for either distance and will have until 11:59 p.m. HST on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021, to complete the race and record their times on the site.
On Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021, at 9 a.m. HST, tune into the Four Seasons Resort Maui Facebook page or @fsmaui on Instagram, as the Resort will live broadcast closing ceremonies, including an oli (Hawaiian chant) by Hawaiian Cultural Ambassador Wendy Tuivaioge and an outrigger canoe paddle to scatter orchids in honor of those affected by cancer. Additionally, during the ceremonies, participation prizes will be awarded.
Participation prizes will be drawn randomly and include:
- (1) Three-night stay at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea including breakfast for two, daily parking, and premium internet
- (2) $250 USD gift card for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts
The registration for the 5K or 10K run/walk is $50 USD or $30 USD for kamaʻāina. Dedication orchids for the canoe ceremony can be purchased for $5 USD each. Those who wish to donate directly to support Day of Hope can also do so on the registration website.
