    Hi Colleen,

    We have an Ocean Sports & Fitness Day scheduled for April 8th and I am wondering if you have any female volunteers who might like to participate and assist with helping girls surf? The event is sponsored by Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation and we will have about 125 Boys & Girls Club kids ages 10 -14 participating. Lunch is provided by Duke’s Waikiki.

    Thanks for considering and I look forward to hearing from you!
