100 Holes of Golf – one of Maui’s most successful fundraisers & most unknown ultra-distance sporting events on Maui took place at the Wailea Blue Golf course on Saturday, May 28. This was the 45th time it has been played and it has raised over a million dollars for Ka Lima O Maui. On Saturday, 18 determined and generous guys played golf from 5 am to 7 pm to help Ka Lima O Maui, one of Maui’s oldest non-profits. Led by Larry Stubblefield, there is no shortage of heroes in this group who play to help people with disabilities that live and work on Maui. This will be Larry’s 40th year participating in it and the 39th time he has organized it. Not to be overlooked were David Robinson who completed his 30th year of doing 100 Holes and Dale Madden who complete his 20th year of 100 Holes. Dale,

Since the Annual Charity Walk is going Virtual this year, Ka Lima O Maui decided to have a short, informal walk around Keopuolani Park as the focal point to raise money for this great event that helps so many non-profits on Maui.

Other staff made sandwiches, staff crosswalks, and cheered on the great effort made by everyone. The unique t-shirt design was created by Sarah McGowan.
Ka Lima O Maui has been working with Source America to develop a new tool for persons with the use of only one hand to independently put on a safety glove. Called “Glove Assist”, the tool allows the person to attached the glove to the “Glove Assist”. Once attached, the person places their hand into the now partially open glove.
