Give Forward: Helping One of Our Own

Last Sunday, October 12th, Katie Connor was struck while riding her bike by a hit-and-run driver. This hit close to home as Katie is one of our Wahines. The accident left Katie with serious head trauma. There have been signs of recovery, but there is still a long road ahead. A donation website has been set up to aid her family.  Donations will go to all current and future medical expenses, ie: hospital stay, therapy, etc.  Any help is appreciated!
