The Mana'olana Story


Mana'olana Pink Paddlers was started in 2006 by some of our Canadian members of Maui Canoe Club who were familiar with the  Abreast-in-a-Boat program in Canada, and modeled a program after it. We became a non profit 501(c)3 in 2010.

The original vision was to reach out to breast cancer survivors. Since then, we have expanded our membership to include ALL cancer survivors and their supporters, regardless of age or gender. Today we have over 100 members ranging in age from 40's through 90's and still paddling strong!

Our Mission is to cultivate hope, health, fitness, and fun for cancer survivors and supporters, utilizing traditional Hawaiian outrigger canoes to encourage physical exercise, build confidence and friendship.

Our goal is to prove, by example, that exercise can make a difference and demonstrate that people living with this disease can lead full and active lives.

As a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization, we are committed to reaching out into our community to make a difference, including developing rewarding community partnerships with Pacific Cancer Foundation.

For additional information about our members and what we're doing, please visit our Facebook page at Mana'olana Maui.
