Imua Keiki O Ke Kai: Connecting Athletes with Special Needs Children of Maui

Posted by SIC Maui on

We want to give a shout out to Imua Family Services for putting on this great event together serving the Maui community. Imua Keiki O Ke Kai (which means “go forward, children of the sea”) was inspired by SIC Global Team member - Andrea Moller’s vision to offer Camp Imua kids a way to enjoy one-on-one time with ocean athletes on water. A day focused exclusively on the children of Camp Imua. On Saturday March 25th, professional and amateur athletes came to Maui to help introduce the kids of Camp Imua to the water through paddling.

We want to thank all the members of the SIC team and of course, all the volunteers that came out to support this cause and paddle with the kids of Camp Imua. A special thanks to Dave Weiss and the team at Ka'anapali Surf Club for bringing down their fleet of SIC boards for the volunteers and campers to paddle on. Check out these lovely photos taken by Johann Meya at this year's Imua Keiki O Ke Kai on Kahului Harbor.

The Imua Keiki O Ke Kai is a unique event aimed at connecting children with special needs to the ocean and our local community of ocean athletes, as well as building community among families. Campers and their families gather at Hawaiian Canoe Club for guided stand-up paddling, double hull outrigger canoe paddling, and jet-ski rides. Special mahalo to SIC Maui/Flow Sports Inc. and the Ka'anapali Surf Club for providing stand-up paddle boards for this event!
