27th Annual Day of Hope, Nov. 12, 2016
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea will host its 27th Annual Day of Hope on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016.
The day’s events commence at 7 a.m., with a 10K Run/5K Run and Walk along Wailea Alanui Drive, with events at the Resort’s Ocean Front Lawn and Wailea Beach throughout the morning.
The community is invited to join in on the fundraising event with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society, Pacific Cancer Foundation, and Kapiʻolani Medical Center.
The run/walk will be followed by a breakfast buffet on the Ocean Front Lawn, where Master of Ceremonies, news anchor Howard “Dash” Dashefsky will preside over the day’s events.
Locks of Love will also be on hand to lop off pony tails of 10 inches or longer to be made into real-hair wigs for children going through cancer treatment. Those who donate their hair will be treated to a haircut at The Salon at Four Seasons Resort Maui.
For children ages 3 to 12 years, there will be a Keiki Dash on Wailea Beach.
The day will conclude with a canoe ceremony to commemorate loved ones lost to cancer.
The Day of Hope is a culmination of year-around efforts of the Resort’s employee volunteers. Last year, the Resort donated over $42,000.
“Most of us have been touched in some way by the devastating effects of cancer,” said General Manager Jean Claude Wietzel. “We are proud to join together with the community to celebrate those who are battling cancer, remember those we have lost, and, most importantly, to continue the fight by raising funds for research and patient care.”
Pre-registration is $55. Race-day registration is $60. A complimentary shuttle service will run from the grassy lawn at the top of Wailea Ike Drive to Wailea Beach before and after the race.
