Malaekahana Bike Path (Part I): An Opportunity To Serve

The Malaekahana Bike Path stretches for 1.2 miles between Laie and Kahuku. It’s a project that has everyone in the two communities of Laie and Kahuku buzzing. The most unique thing about this project is that the community has been an important part of it. Like, literally.

Every week, we’ve seen progress because of the volunteers from the community who want to help. Most Saturday mornings, kids are still sleeping at 8am. These kids are here helping to spread out the dirt around the pathway instead.

A mother and son working together. That boy will remember this when he’s an adult. He will have a fun memory of working on the pathway with his mom.

Miss Ivy doing her part. Hi Ivy!

High school seniors helping where they can. What great examples they are to younger ones. See, even the cool guys are doing it.

These boys are working extra hard.

Another mother and son working together. Such a great experience.

No one was too young to help. No hands were too small.

A true scene of service. Being happy while helping. These girls look like their almost having too much fun . . . . Naaaahhhh. You could never when it’s in the name of service. The Malaekahana Pathway is just about done. The dedication will be this Saturday, March 19th, 2011. Hope to see you all there.
