On October 6th, over 300 cancer survivors and supporters will paddle six-person outrigger canoes across the ‘Au’au channel from Lahaina to Lana’i, a 34-mile round trip journey, to raise funds for the Pacific Cancer Foundation in their 10th Annual Paddle for Life fundraiser.
There is truly a remarkable parallel between an ocean paddling voyage and the journey experienced by cancer patients and survivors. Both involve tremendous physical, mental and emotional strength. Both require patience and perseverance. And, ultimately, it takes a team to make the journey successful.
