I grew up a coach’s son and have been involved high school, college, and club sports nearly my entire life. I’ve always known that fundraising was an integral part of the process, but when I moved to Maui in 2011 and got involved with paddling canoes, I realized that fundraising is exponentially more important in Hawai’i. Everything is more expensive in the islands, and increased travel costs for flights between islands or to the mainland are a fact of life. This need, combined with the legendary generosity of local people and their families supporting local causes, has made our fundraising campaigns in Hawai’i tremendously successful.
