Ke Aloha Outrigger is pleased to announce our second annual circumnavigation fundraiser!
To circumnavigate is to go all the way around something, and what better of a place to do this than our very own island of Manhattan! A circumnavigation of Manhattan is one of the ultimate challenges testing a paddler's endurance and mental fortitude through a variety of difficult conditions! We are asking each paddler to raise $200 for their seat and that is where you come in.
Ke Aloha is in its second year and growing! The money raised from last year's Circumnavigation allowed us to expand our horizons. That included the purchases of a second 6-man outrigger canoe, the design and construction of a rack for our expanding fleet and our first full run of an OC Junior program for kids aged 10-17.
We are so proud to see our goals for this club are coming to fruition but we aren't done yet. Donations from this paddle will go towards fully refurbishing our newly purchased canoe and provide our new OC Junior program with new life jackets and paddles. We want to expand its ohana (family) to include more community members and keiki (children). Please help us expand on them by donating!
Our flotilla will be a huge presence on the NYC waterways and will help increase the awareness of our organization and our mission. Your support is always appreciated and all donations are tax deductible. Mahalo!
