What is the Paradise Ride Kaua`i About?
Paradise Ride Kauai is the major annual fundraising event for Malama Pono – the Kauai AIDS Project established in 1986 as a grass-roots response to HIV on the Garden Isle. The August 2007 and August 2008 rides--thanks to the awesome enthusiasm and generous support of our cyclists, sponsors, volunteers and island community--have been our most successful ever, raising much-needed funds for items and programs which are not otherwise funded by our United Way, State and Federal programs. Without this ‘extra assist’ from Paradise Ride Kauai many of our programs would go wanting for lack of the necessary support funds. Your participation in the ride helps Kauai’s only HIV/AIDS service organization to continue important education, community assistance, outreach, client support and the overall effort to end AIDS.
