I have decided to ride 100+ miles across Kauai's beautiful, yet difficult terrain to raise money on behalf of Malama Pono Health Services. Between now and August 6th, I will be training so that I can complete the course which will be an incredible acheivement for me and hopefully I can raise money along the way for this amazing organization. Malama Pono Health services provides vaulable services benefitting the entire Island of Kauai. Malama Pono began in 1986 as an AIDS service organization, helping people who were HIV + with their day to day needs including insurance, doctor care, food, housing, transportation and many other aspects of life. Today as HIV becomes a manageable yet not curable disease, Malama Pono has expanded its services to still include the much needed HIV care as well as add on HIV testing, STD testing and treatment, Hepatits B & C testing and vaccinations, Woman's wellness exams, Transgender services, and Fatherhood is Sacred program. All of these programs fill in gaps in care on the island of Kauai. By supporting me you are helping Malama Pono continue to provide these important services and add on new services in the future. Please help me reach my goal of $1000.
