THE STORY:

Health disparities such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and depression are rampant in our Pacific Islander communities. These health conditions has taken many of our families lives' and continues to collect each year. I've seen this happen in my own family time and time again to the point of being numb to it. "It's just the way it is" was how I seen it, until I woke up! These health disparities are caused by so many outside factors that we are so oblivious to: Poor diet; lack of exercise; geographical location; lack of knowledge and/or resources, etc. Ever since I realized the root causes of these conditions, I've wanted to make a change but didn't know where to begin or how to start. 


Empowering Pacific Islander Communities (EPIC) has signed up with Team In Training to train for the #LAMarathon2016 to fundraise for our leadership program, Pacific Islander Leaders Of Tomorrow (PILOT) and to promote health in our Pacific Islander communities. I believe in the PILOT program so much that I committed myself to the training, fundraising, and the race. This is the perfect opportunity to shift my mindset and start living a more healthier lifestyle for these next chapters of my life I have left to live! I want to be around to see the new generations grow into leaders who will advocate, graduate, and cultivate. I'm so dedicated to the work I do that fundraising for our program and promoting a healthy living is giving me the motivation to keep going. When my ankles hurt and my feet (and auagas) are burning, keep going! When I think I can't do it anymore and I want to quit, I think of my family, our community, and our youth, keep going! If you're interested in helping me reach the finish line at the LA Marathon and wish to make a contribution to my fundraiser to support PILOT, please donate by clicking on the link in my bio: http://tinyurl.com/DannyBoyPILOTFundraiser Your contribution will ensure that our PILOT program is around when your youth (family, church, community) grow up! Thank you for reading this and I wish you and yours love, peace, and understanding. Here's to a healthier and empowered community! ✊
