Our Neighbors

More than 300 cancer survivors, family members and supporters journeyed across the Auau channel on six-person outrigger canoes as part of the 10th annual Paddle For Life fundraising voyage on Oct. 6–7.

The paddlers left Lahaina early Saturday morning on the 17-mile journey to Lanai, which took four hours. Upon landing at Manele Bay, they enjoyed a lunch on the beach provided by Cafe 565, saw the sights on Lanai, and celebrated with an evening of entertainment and camping under the stars.

The proceeds from the event will benefit the Pacific Cancer Foundation and go toward helping Maui cancer patients navigate their illness and treatment, and provide support to their families during their time of need.
