Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

The Honolulu Little League All Stars 12u capture the 2014 Hawaii State Little League Championship recently against very good competition from all over the state. 

With their win, they secured a berth in the Little League Western Division Championships being played in San Bernardino, California.  If successful there, the team will compete in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series.

It is an exciting time for the team and their families and the energy level and optimism is extremely positive.  The reality of the current moment, however, is that it is very expensive to take a team from Hawaii to the mainland to represent our state.  That is why we need your help!  We are actively soliciting donations to defray the players and coaches expenses while on this exciting journey.

Hawaii teen heads to California, battles rare disease

Hawaii teen heads to California, battles rare disease
 By: Taylor Preza  It’s a disease that impacts less than one in 100,000 people a year, and it is impacting one young woman right here in Hawaii. On July 16, 18-year-old Taylor Ann Hiraki was diagnosed with Moyamoya, a rare and progressive brain disease greatly characterized by strokes caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain. It all started when Taylor had returned home to Honolulu, Hawaii for the summer after completing her first year of college at Pacific University in Oregon.  She was working her seasonal job at Maile’s Thai Bistro in Hawaii Kai moments before a series of mini-strokes started to occur.  A family friend just so happened to be dining at the restaurant while Taylor was working.
