About

Healthy Hearts of Homeless Keiki Campaign- Fitness Challenge.

Project Hawai'i, Inc. is a nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers to provide homeless children with year round services. Since we are publicly supported, we obviously need to raise funds for particular events and programs that help these children escape their cycle of poverty.

Most homeless children living in poverty have low self-esteem, limited social and life skills and definitely don't have an open opportunity to participate in school based, or extracurricular activities during their youth.

The largest obstacle these children face joining a team or sports group, etc., is due to lack of funds and supportive requirements to play or sign up.

Every year, we choose February as our month to conduct our Healthy Hearts for Homeless Keiki campaign. While this is conducted and organized in February, we do not expect all challenges to happen in February.. year round is fine.

Our goal for this program is to have an active fund that allows us to sponsor the child's needs as they arise. A typical sport can cost well over $100.00 per child. For some this is life-changing and helps the child learn so much more about themselves, values, team work, etc...

We are seeking a coordinator that would like to help coordinate and set up the program with local gyms, fitness groups, centers, etc... such as yoga, zumba, fitboxing, running, walking, stroller races... any activity that requires "fitness building" to keep with our theme of Healthy Hearts!!

Your responsibility would be:

  1. Contact the group/owner/coordinator of the fitness group
  2. Help them establish the time frame, and make the commitment to Project Hawai'i, Inc.
  3. Be the voice for the homeless children
We will provide you with supportive needs (we have a page on our site dedicated to help start), etc. Typically the group will want to meet Project Hawai'i, and have a short introduction of who we are and what we do. I can do that, or of course you can do that... A great way to start is to connect with a local group in your own community, the place you work out at, or participate with... or for those who are really outgoing and ambitious to contact several fitness centers, etc. For more information, please contact us. I will send you the details and link to the website sign up area for the fitness coordinator, etc.
