Proceeds from the event will benefit the Pacific Cancer Foundation, Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children, and the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge.
A virtual 5K and 10K run/walk and streamed ceremonies will allow participants worldwide to be a part of the Resort’s tradition.
“Following the success off last year’s virtual format, we are thrilled to invite people from all corners of the globe to take part in the Resort’s Day of Hope again this year,” says Four Seasons Resort General Manager, Ben Shank. “The virtual race gives our extended Four Seasons Maui ‘ohana (family)—regardless of where they are physically—an opportunity to join our community as we raise funds for those affected by cancer in Hawaiʻi.”
