Despite the rainy weather, dozens of community members donned pink outfits to join Mahelona Memorial Hospital’s 5th Annual Breast Cancer Walk at the Ke Ale Hele Makalae on the morning of Oct. 6. The walk was intended to spread awareness and celebrate survivorship and honor those touched by cancer.
Musician Ilima Rivera, the Kapa‘a High School Band and the Polynesian Musical Group provided entertainment for the public on the lawn behind the Kapa‘a Community Center just prior to the walk.
The walk was sponsored by Mahelona Auxiliary and Hawai‘i Tourism and Lodge Association, with many other partners contributing to make the event a reality.
