Recently we had the opportunity to paddle with the Mana’olana Pink Paddlers- Wow what a paddle!
Thank you to all members for braving the waves and allowing us to join them as they paddled in Maalaea Bay near Kihei, Maui. We were welcomed into the boat and made to feel right at home as we paddled in a Hawaiian double hull canoe on the Pacific Ocean for the very first time. What an awesome and tiring experience! Mahalo for your hospitality, and we hope to see you again soon.
The Mana’olana Pink Paddlers were started in 2006 by members of Maui Canoe Club and the Abreast-in-a-Boat dragon boat program here in Canada. Their original vision was to reach out to women breast cancer survivors in a gesture of support and recognition. Since then, in that same spirit, they have expanded their membership to include ALL cancer survivors and their supporters, regardless of age or gender.
