That’s a personal question, and different for each individual or company that chooses to donate to any organization. It may be you are passionate about riding, maintaining trails, or helping others get access to bikes and the opportunity to ride. Whatever your reasons may be, we at the Hawaii Mountain Bike Association are grateful for your contribution.
100% of your donation will be used locally in Hawaii to improve the physical, mental and social health of individuals in our communities. This may manifest itself in the purchase of tools for the construction and maintenance of trails, providing low cost skills clinics, or weekly guided group rides.
Mountain biking is good fun, but it’s more than that. It’s about enjoying nature, it’s about camaraderie, it’s about overcoming challenges and not giving up. Our desire is to share this experience with others, especially those who are struggling physically and emotionally. We are developing a program where HMBA provides bikes, guides and rides for recovering veterans who may benefit from the experiences mountain biking provides.
So once again, thank you for considering the Hawaii Mountain Bike Association for your donation. Much aloha (love) for your lokomaikaʻi (kindness). We’ll see you on the trails!
