A famous little red dirt road needs our help

Those who’ve raced from Moloka’i to Oahu in the past, and those who have these signature Hawaiian races on their bucket list, will appreciate the significance of a steep and winding red dirt road that leads down to Hale O Lono on the Island of Moloka’i, Hawaii. The road ends at a remote ribbon of beach, where a small man-made breakwater serves as the start line for internationally revered outrigger crew races between Moloka’i and Oahu.

This single-lane dirt road also renders car-rental insurance contracts void. More importantly, truck-and-trailer trips loaded with outrigger canoes for Nā Wāhine and Moloka’i races can be as nail-biting as the races themselves. That’s where we can help.

Maui-based women’s team Team Bradley has organized a go-fund-me campaign to collect funds to help repair and shore-up this vital road. Canadian paddlers are invited to pitch in. Visit Team Bradley’s go-fund-me page and chip in what you can to help get this year’s Na Wahine O Ke Kai and subsequent Moloka’i Hoe races to their start lines safely. CLICK HERE to make a donation.
