KAANAPALI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hyatt Regency Maui will begin breast cancer awareness month with its 3rd Annual Maui Paddle for a Cure this Saturday to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation Hawaii.

“Exceeding last year’s goal was a wonderful victory, and we’re excited to bring our guests and community together again to increase awareness for breast cancer and raise funds for this important cause,” said Allan Farwell, general manager at Hyatt Regency Maui.

One hundred percent of proceeds are donated to the foundation, and last year they raised over $36,000. This year they are hoping to raise $50,000 through donations and registration fees.

The event will feature stand-up paddle board, kayak, and canoe paddling races along Kaanapali Beach and will begin at Hanakaoo Beach Park (Canoe Beach).

Three events will take place:

  • Beginner- Basic paddling lessons led by The Butterfly Effect (a philanthropic organization empowering athletic women) and will end with an optional half mile paddle. This event is limited to 20 participants.
  • Intermediate- 2 mile paddle from Canoe Beach to Black Rock and back
  • Advanced: 4-mile course from Canoe Beach to Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort and back for experienced paddlers and canoe paddlers/

An exclusive after party, silent auction and performance by Anuhea will follow at the Sunset Terrace located on the resort

After party only tickets are $25 per person at the door. Prices will increase after Sept. 25.
