Ke Aloha Manhattan Circumnavigation 2016
Organized by: Ke Aloha Outrigger
3 Days Left!
August 31, 2016
EVENT DATE Sep 03, 2016
Ke Aloha Outrigger is pleased to announce our first annual circumnavigation fundraiser. To circumnavigate is to go all the way around something, and what better of a place to do this then 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!
Ke Aloha is growing. We are so proud to see that our goals for this club are coming to fruition. We want to expand its ohana (family) to include more community members and keiki (children). Please help us expand on them by donating!
Ke Aloha is lucky to serve the local community with an existing canoe, but the popularity has been amazing and we unfortunately cannot serve everyone who is interested. However, with a second canoe, Ke Aloha can better serve the community by increasing our capacity to allow local residents of all ages the skills to safely explore our beautiful waterways and increase visibility of the sport and our home port of Hoboken, NJ. It will also allow Ke Aloha the funds to develop and support a kid's summer program!
This paddle is in conjunction with Village Community Boathouse on their annual 'Row Around Manhattan' fundraiser. Our flotilla will be a huge presence on the NYC waterways and will help increase the awareness of our organizations and respective missions.
All donations are tax deductible.
