Weekend of Community Service

Several Kaizen girls spent this past weekend volunteering at a couple of local events. On Saturday, April 8, girls from the 16s and 14s teams helped out at the YMCA Healthy Kids day. The girls assisted with the games and activities booths at the Bishop Museum event.

On Sunday, April 9, the entire 16s team plus Tatum helped with the City and County of Honolulu Parks and Recreation, Manoa Complex’s Easter Egg Hunt at Manoa District Park. The players “hid” thousands of eggs for the over 500 children who attended the event.
