Notice the pink canoe in the swell? We are working with our sponsor Kialoa Paddles and being introduced to others who are paddling for a cure. Their cause "Race to Heal" is a team of women who paddle to bring awareness around breast cancer in Hawaii.

Jamie Kinard and Jessie Eames. Check them out at http://naleohoewaa.honadvblogs.com/.

Goals include using outrigger canoe paddling as a means of raising cancer awareness within the community, specifically the Native Hawaiian community. Also "Race to Heal" promoting the Breast & Cervical Cancer Control Program at the Women’s Health Center at Queen’s Medical Center.

We are getting their "Race to Heal" decals for our cruiser. - Hey Dad, maybe a trip to Hawaii to train! :-)
