The clock is ticking down to the start of our annual 5k/10k race, The Mac-a-thon, happening this year on Saturday, March 30th. It is the oldest foot race on Hawai’i island, and your entry fee includes a race shirt and a mac nut pancake breakfast. Don’t miss it!

Silent Auction

The Mac-a-thon is one of the biggest fundraising events for our club, and a lot of it’s success is due to the support from our community. We are humbly asking for donations to our silent auction. We are a 501(c)3, so all donations are tax-deductible. If you are able to donate, please get in touch with Chris: 808-989-5004.

Annual Beach Road Cleanup

We will be cleaning up the beach road on Thursday, March 21st from 4:30 until pau.

Today marks the beginning of an exciting journey as we paddle into a new season of aloha, camaraderie, resilience, and the sheer joy of gliding across the ocean. Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or someone eager to dip their paddle into the waters for the first time, we invite each member of our paddling ʻohana to join us on the water today and be a part of the exhilarating experiences that await us.

Let’s come together, feel the rhythm of the ocean, and embark on another memorable season of teamwork, growth, and adventure. We look forward to seeing you at the bay!

Mahalo nui loa,
Chris and the Keōua Hōnaunau Canoe Club Board
