Life Aloha is a community based program to assist locals in reducing stress and obesity through Hawaiian Outrigger Paddling in custom wide double hull canoe.
Maui Canoe Clubs works under a grant agreement with the State of Hawaii Department of Health - Maui Office. The program was funded through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) program to reduce chronic disease, morbidity, and mortality by supporting evidence and practice-based community approaches to chronic disease prevention and control. Community based programs are sponsored by the United States Department of Disease Control (CDC) in cooperation with States' Department of Health.
